After 5 is composed of five young professionals – sisters Cheenee and Chin Daria on vocals/guitar, Nino Sto. Niño on lead guitar, Alex Tecson on bass, and Jonil Bautista on drums – whose common denominator is their passion for music.
The group, which is one of the newest pop-rock bands in the country, has already released an album entitled, “OPM After 5” that includes the LSS-worthy track “Gusto na rin Kita.”
The main advocacy of the band is to encourage music enthusiasts cum professionals to go after their dreams despite various commitments in the corporate world. Usually, the members meet and rehearse after work, which is at 5 pm, hence the band’s name.
Chenee is a businesswoman; China, a commercial model; Nino, an engineer; Alex, a professional bus driver; and Jonil, a corporate sales executive.
