It’s been 20 years since Ebe Dancel released “Dramachine” with his former band, Sugarfree, and he’s celebrating the occasion with a nostalgic concert.
The now-solo artist will treat fans to a night of nostalgia and bittersweet anthems with his “Dramachine: 20 Years” show on January 26th, at 123 Block, Mandaluyong City. Dancel is set to perform the album in its entirety, which includes hits like “Prom”, “Hari ng Sablay”, and “Tulog Na” among others. Other acts, including former Sugarfree drummer Mitch Singson, will join him.
When asked if he thought “Dramachine” would have such a long-lasting impact on the OPM scene, Dancel was humbled, saying “I don’t think I have an answer for that – they were just songs written by an average guy about everyday life. I never thought of the songs as arena songs or anthems – I just made sure I could sing along to it.”
Dancel says that fans can expect the show to be a festive reminder of days past. “Come for the songs and the memories – eat, drink, and sing along; throughout the years, the fans are still what keeps me in the industry. This show will also kick off my 25th year in the business. I am eternally grateful that there are a lot of reasons for all of us to celebrate.”
Tickets for the show are now available online via Backspacer Records, with regular tickets priced at PHP 1,200.00 and special tickets which include the vinyl and official merchandise at upwards of PHP 3,300.
