Las Piñas 91

After 38 years, a group of talented young musicians approached Mr. Raymond Fajardo, grandson of Mr. Daniel Fajardo, and proposed reopening Banda de Las Piñas. Finally, on June 12, 1991, the band was officially revived with Mr. Fidelito “Feddie” Timbang taking over the baton. Hence, the first batch of musicians of the revived band coined themselves as Las Piñas Band 91.

 

Nonetheless, Las Piñas Band 91, Las Piñas Band, Banda de Las Piñas are all the same. Thus, they are the same band under the same management established in 1927.
