Fans troop to Pacific Hut Restaurant to meet Sarah Geronimo; Annie Lux, Overdrive Band perform to brighten up the night

CALGARY — Pacific Hut Restaurant was packed with fans for a “meet and greet” event with famous Filipina singer and actress, Sarah Geronimo.

Sarah G. posed for photos with her fans and thanked them for coming. Then after the photoshoot that Saturday night, Sept.21, she went back to her hotel to rest. She performed the next day, Sept. 22, at the Grey Eagle Event Centre.

It was a quick visit that was successfully hosted by Pacific Hut owners Ron Ala and wife Maria Teresa, whose restaurant has been a venue for up and coming bands and singers to perform.

The crowd did not go home after seeing Sarah G. because that night turned out to be a treat for them as Calgary-based singer Annie Lux performed with the Overdrive Band. Band members Mimi Tan and Genesis Tumacder belted out songs too to the delight of the fans.

Annie Lux, daughter of Ron and Maria Teresa, is a song writer too whose song “A-Side” was featured on hit Disney Channel show “The Next Step” and has over two million views on YouTube. In 2015, Annie released her first solo EP “Lux”.

She studies at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston and has already signed with Viva Records as a recording artist, hoping to build a career in the Philippines. Her debut single “Yesterday” was released in April 2017, followed by her latest single “Honey” which hit the airwaves in September.

Overdrive’s two lead singers pumped up the night with various song selections that brighten up the night.

Mimi Tan, in her 20’s and Genesis Tumacder, 16, surprisingly, learned the Filipino language by listening to Original Pilipino Music (OPM).
