Most musicians know a guy who happens to be part of a million bands. With the utmost respect, I call them a band whore. When a musician plants himself in multiple musical situations, performs like a pro, and is able to do it over and over again, they have very high musical chops. Not many people can do that comfortably and much less thrive.

With that said, that’s how I got to know J Martino “Bobbidee” Olvido. Usually when I interview a musician, it becomes clear quickly what music group I should attach them to. With Bobbi, this was not so easy. Here’s an incomplete list of his bands; Sunday Sunday, Snubear, Foc Fashion, The Spirals, Kids Acting Cool, Soda Can Genie, Red Twin Motel, and his newest and current focus Kubra Commander. It was fun to talk to a guy who genuinely loves music, and doesn’t care about all the other trappings of being a musician. When I get a chance to talk to someone like that, I take it. Oh and he talks about meeting one of his heroes, Raimund Marasigan, by the urinal. It was a fun story.

In this episode, we talk about what it is like to be part of so many bands, the state of the Cebu music scene, the recording process, and about meeting your heroes.

Enjoy the episode!
