Side A Joey Generoso enjoying mentor's job in Protege

JOEY GENEROSO of Side A Band is enjoying his current stint as a mentor in GMA-7’s hit talent search “Protege”. In searching for his own talents to mentor, he went to a church and found some vendors who turn out to be good singers. "It's very satisfying to help talented young people achieve their dreams as singer with you guiding them along the way," he says.

But this doesn’t mean he’s abandoning his job as Side A’s vocalist. This coming Friday, 8 PM, he and bandmates Kelly Badon, Joey Benin, Lee Von Cailao and Ned Esguerra will join forces with The Company of Moy Ortiz, Sweet Plantado, Annie Quintos, Cecille Bautista and Jay Marquez in a special concert, “In the Company of Side A”, at the NewPort Performing Arts Theatre of Resort World Manila. It’s double the music and double the entertainment as Side A sings their hits like “Hold On”, “Tuloy Pa Rin Ako”, “Forevermore”, “So Many Questions”, and “Aawitin Ko Na Lang” while The Company sings their own hits like “Now That I Have You”, “Pakisabi Na Lang”, “Muntik Na Kitang Minahal”, “Isang Taong Lumipas” and more. Produced by Viva Concerts that also mounted the hit Martin Nievera tribute concert at Resort World Manila, Beth Martin is the musical director with arrangements by Naldy Gonzales of Side A and Moy Ortiz of The Company. Tickets ranging from P2,500 to P3,500 are at TicketWorld (891-9999) and at the theatre box office.
