Other Pinoy bands’ technique is to join in various talent competitions. This is one good technique in penetrating the world of radio and television.
It is really great if you follow an album tour blog especially if there are certain bands or singers that you really idolize. By following these blogs, you will be able to get updates about their gigs as well as the places where they are going. When you are near the place where they will do the tour, you might book a ticket right away. If there are no tickets, you might also get seat reservations from the organizers.
Fanatics will really do everything just to follow their idols. Thus, if you can relate to this, take advantage of an album tour blog. Some other fanatics might content to just seeing their favorites over the TV or net. Yet, if you do follow these blogs, you will be able to get an update about their whereabouts. Who knows? They might have their next tour in your own city or in a place near you. You will really make the other fans so envious of you.

With the number of Pinoy bands these days, you might say that it is more or less impossible to form one. Well, this is a big myth. The truth here is that despite the number of Pinoy bands that are already popular, it is still possible to be on the rise. There are a few bands that have just emerged a few months back. This means that if you have found your own niche and your songs will have a huge appeal in the Filipino market, it will then be easier for you and your band to penetrate. Other Pinoy bands also started from nothing. They were just invited to sing in local bars and small gigs. However, eventually, since many people loved their performances, they were invited to do bigger shows, until they have finally penetrated the television and radio.
This is how things usually start for popular Pinoy bands. They used to be ignored, but eventually, with their ability to really push through, they made it!
