Los Angeles has a long history of producing iconic musical acts, from the Beach Boys in 1961 to The Black Eyed Peas in 1988, to Maroon 5 in 1994. Now it's 2014 and in keeping with this illustrious tradition, it now presents you with The Filharmonic, a boy band unique in their musical talent and cultural diversity. The group consists of six members: Vocalists VJ, Joe, Trace and Barry, Vocal Bass Jules, and Beatboxer Niko. Their melodic vocal style exemplifies an urbanesque hip hop sound with 90's nostalgia.
What started as friendly chance encounters at singing competitions eventually solidified into a harmonious group as the boys discovered their shared genuine chemistry, unparalleled love of music, and undeniable musical talents. Through social network and a strong kinship to their Filipino culture they have found their niche in the musical community. Though their passion for great music is on par, their combined talents come from a wide variety of backgrounds in the performing arts industry, including pop, a capella, jazz, opera, theater, classical, etc. Together they honor their Filipino heritage through incredibly nuanced musical performances that are both moving and fun to experience.
When not forging their place in musical history, the boys can be found attending school, hard at work on their music and videos, and doing what they love most: simply performing. Ultimately the group aspires to work with the greatest in the music industry for the greatest audience in the world: you. To this end, they invite you to join them on this amazing journey they’ve embarked on as they work joyfully and tirelessly at their art.
" We would like to give a special thanks to Sam Danan, Theresa Tibayan, Aja Vo, our friends, family and last but not least to our God. Thank you for all your love and support!" - The Filharmonic
