It was twenty years ago today,
Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play...


it was around twenty years ago today,
I first watched Juan Miguel's band play.

Cory was our cherished President,
Mr. Salvador's band was called RAGE,
and they were the hottest act in the city.

Fast Forward:
we still cherish Cory as President,
Mr. Salvador's band is now AUTHORITY,
and they are one of the hottest acts in the city!

And yes,
when it comes to the music of the
Best. Decade. Ever.,
no one does it better!

When AUTHORITY's first set already includes
two of the greatest songs of the '80s,
With or Without You by U2
Every Breath You Take by The Police,

You'd wonder how Juan Miguel
and his band can possibly top these
in their second and third sets.

Yet they do...

and How!!!

A can't miss proposition
for the Cory generation:

from The Cure to Tears for Fears,
from Spandau Ballet to Modern English!

Thursdays @ Strumm's
Jupiter Street, Makati

And to replenish the vitamins and cholesterol
of your weary muscles and osteoporeotic bones
after dancing and singing along for hours,
don't forget to order this along with your beers:

The Supreme Swine,
The Pefect Porcine:

The Crispy Pata Authority!!!

We saw the Authority Band with JMS at Vue Bar at the Bellevue Hotel-Alabang. They were awesome-danceable-huggable and their Queen's medley was stratospheric. The 80's did not left us behind. It is in JMS and his Authority Band

@anonymous ( - I know the song you're talking about. I saw a single when I was an intern in DZUP at the UP College of Mass Communication. Maybe it's still there :)
