While Philippine singers and entertainers abound, few are at par with artist extraordinaire, Jun Polistico.
After years of absence from the Australian scene, Jun Polistico returns to Australia and promises to entertain his audience better than ever. Jun will be performing in Sydney at the Marconi Club on September 22, 2018 and at Spring Vale Town Hall in Melbourne on September 23, 2018.
Polistico is undoubtedly the Philippines’ best! Dubbed as the Frank Sinatra of the Philippines, he’s the crooner with the golden voice. Yet ever so humble, Jun simply quips, “I owe it all to the One up above who continues to bless me.”
Polistico was born in Ormoc, Leyte and with his velvety tones he rose to fame in the 70s. He was the star attraction at the night club circuit in the Philippines ━ from Kudos, to Hilton, Philippine Village [Hotel] and many others. In 1975, he was the chosen entertainer for Ali-Frazier Fight, “Thrilla in Manila.”
Later, he joined the Society of Seven band in the USA and sang his way up and down Las Vegas strip. He returned to his homeland and slipped right back as Philippines’ number one male vocalist in the country with hit songs, “Mahiwaga” and “Sana’y Walang Wakas.”
What makes Jun Polistico a cut above the rest is his charm as an entertainer. He simply oozes with emotions at every song he sings, each note caressing as he belts out classic ballads from yesteryears as well as some of today’s top hits.
He continues to perform in hotels in the Philippines and was recently awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Philippine Entertainment industry during their 40th anniversary.
Performing with Jun Polistico on his Sydney show are three seasoned ladies of the entertainment industry ━ Gina Fernandez, Nanette Ursua-Frohriep and Lalaine Lozano.
Soulful and versatile, GINA FERNANDEZ comes from a family of musicians. It’s inevitable that music has played a huge part in her life.
Vivacious and vibrant, NANETTE URSUA-FROHRIEP is a showbiz veteran who’s guaranteed to get the audience going. A chance meeting with a Casino manager landed her an eight-year stint in various Vegas’ casinos and hotels including The Mirage, Bellagio, Imperial Palace and the Luxor to name a few.
Sweet and mellow, LALAINE LOZANO was a mainstay of Manila’s top entertainment hotspots, The Shangri-La Hotel prior to coming to Australia.
With a knack of translating top hits to Filipino, she became a singing and drama talent for SBS and ABC Radio and endeared herself to many Filipino radio listeners throughout Australia.
Gina, Nanette and Lalaine are akin to the stage and simply warm to the spotlight. They will undoubtedly be rocking at Marconi Club when they headline for the Jun Polistico Show.
