May 9 was Songs of Summer’s 5th run – a clear night with an atmosphere promising great homegrown music.

Mary Anchit

Mary Anchit‘s soulful voice welcomed listeners to the show, doing what she does best with her stories – hitting all the right feels.


Tony Alfonso, now musically known as Fonzy, is no stranger to performing for the Cebuano audience. Performing live for Songs of Summer for the first time, he had listeners vibing to his pop/trap tracks.

Sunday Sunday

Indie rock lovers rocked along to impressive originals by Sunday Sunday, composed of band members with equally impressive experience in producing awesome homegrown music.


Last but not the least was Bethany, whose songs about lost confidence and unmatched love gained them the claps and deep appreciation from the crowd.

And so as long as there are stories to tell and hearts to empty and fill, Songs of Summer will once again return next Wednesday, May 16. Here’s to even better turnouts and good weather!

Catch Songs of Summer every Wednesday until May 23 at the 4th Level Garden Area, Ayala Center Cebu. Music starts at 8PM.
