QUEZON CITY, November 30, 2022 - One of the most recognized and sought-after bands in the wedding and event industry, 3rd Avenue will drop their song “Diskarte” on all music streaming platforms on November 30, 10am PH time. Widely known for their stunning performances and for dazzling party crowds for so many years, “We feel that the time has finally come for us to release our own music”, band vocalist Paolo Ledesma said. "And we're really excited because this is a new chapter for us," he adds.
The composer and drummer of the eight-man outfit, Beng Gatmaitan shares his thoughts about his original composition, "I want this song to connect to the young.
