Passionate about their craft, two equally talented and creative individuals decided to form a collaboration and create a song unlike they have ever done before. Karl Lucente, the guitarist of Honeydrop, together with Gino Rosales  formed a pop synth inspired by Mandaue, and surprising Cebuanos with a single that’s both refreshing and nostalgic.

How did they do that? Try listening to their music and figure out for thy self.

Mandaue nights with their instant hit song “You and I” (ikaw ug ako), delivers the perfect song those with laid-back souls would want to listen on a spontaneous road trip.

Oozing with 80s and 90s vibes, listeners can’t help but feel the nostalgia of the good-old carefree days. The beat triggers the inevitable but very much welcomed last song syndrome.

What makes Mandaue Nights different from other bands?

Karl: We are all about bridging worlds, so instead of seeing what’s different, we would like to look at how music unites us all. It’s the love and appreciation for music that brings us together. 

When asked what’s next for Mandaue Nights, “A couple of secret and not-so-secret shows, good music and some fun collaborations are in the works” Karl Lucente gleefully announced.
