Dutdutan XV Finale: Queso and Greyhoundz

Scroll this

Fifteen years ago, the very first Dutdutan was held in a bar in Malate organized by tattoo artist Ricky Sta. Ana. That evening the only performers were Greyhoundz and Queso. During his closing remarks, Ricky Sta. Ana said that Greyhoundz and Queso helped build Dutdutan. It has been more than 5 years since their last performance in this Tattoo Convention that it was quite fitting for the two bands closed the event’s 15th year.

The venue experienced technical difficulties as the airconditioning of the whole venue broke, but people still stayed until the very end, despite the delays and the intense heat and waited until the very last song of Greyhoundz which ended at 4am.

Ian appeared for a brief moment during Greyhoundz’ set while B-Boy Garcia remained on stage after Queso’s performance to jam with Greyhoundz. “Wag ka nalang umalis B-Boy mag jam ka nalang”, Reg announced on the microphone as Queso was packing up.

A cool trivia not everyone knew about that when Greyhoundz was starting out B-Boy was actually a member for a brief moment, which leads us to the story of his tattoo. He said that Queso is spelled QUEZO with a “Z” because it’s an homage to Greyhoundz.

Pretty cool, right?

  1. It was my first time to attend Dutdutan and was lucky enough coz Queso and Greyhoundz performed on the same night or morning should I say. Well, I can’t think of any other band who’s fit to perform at the crack of dawn.

    Aircondition all over the venue stopped working. The crowd can’t help but complain. Sweat all over our body. And then, it’s 3:00 AM and we all went wild not because of the heat but because we saw Queso/Greyhoundz getting ready for their set. Woooohh! It was not really the FHM bikini and the so-called-chilhood-hero Maria Ozawa but it was the two great bands that made the crowd stayed and pumped up. Salute to Queso and Greyhoundz gang. Tiga Brgy. Tibay, sarap mag-ingay!

  2. Nainitan, napawisan, nainip at inantok. Pero dahil sa Queso at Greyhoundz, nag stay! Panalo bawat galaw at sigaw.

  3. Ocho playing with a cat… The guy doesn’t age..

    Enzo with grey hair.. The last time I’ve seen Queso play was in 2003, Mayric’s I think.

    Time flies fast, I missed those nights actually.

    Anyway, you are indeed my favorite LIVE photographer. THOSE SHOTS WERE SUPERB.

    Blessed be.
