Tarantulas’ repertoire includes blues, rock & roll & selected rock hits from the 60s-90s. Founded by Joonnie Centeno, the band looks forward to doing regular/corporate gigs around the metro, and to share the passion & music with other enthusiasts. Currently, the band plays regularly at Handlebar Makati, The Roadhouse Manila Bay, The Apartment Poblacion & Braiser’s The VIllage Cafe in BF.
The band also accepts & plays for private/corporate/special events via regular set up or acoustical jam. The band has also written its original songs based on musical influences. This led to being included in Roadhouse Rekords’ launched compilation album way back 2012 along with its fellow house blues bands, contributing 3 original songs on the album.
Tarantulas was chosen as a semi-finalist in the recently held Philippine Blues Society competition “Road to Memphis 2012” (top 8 out of the 40plus competing local blues bands nationwide).
