So Fresh Summer Music Series at Pika's Cafe

Guam - The patrons of Pika's Café were treated to the melodious sounds of local youth musicians as the So Fresh Summer Music Series began today.

The music series features three youth music groups Paige And Cirena, Love N' Hafa Adai, and Jen and Jase. Paige Pereira and Cirena San Nicolas, recent graduates from the Academy of Our Lady of Guam, launched the series as the pilot performance. "It's good that we're supporting local music and the local artists and showing off their talent," said Pereira.  San Nicolas added, "I feel honored because we didn't think we were that professional." "We do it just for fun!" Pereira chimed in.

The music series is sponsored by Pika's Café, One Music, Bank of Guam and Crowns Guam. According to Pika's Café owners Lenny and Pika Fejeran, the goal of the series is to promote the island's talented youth.

The musicians will be performing in rotation every Tuesday until August 12 from 11:30 to 1:30 at the Upper Tumon restaurant. "The difference is that the musicians that we usually feature throughout the year are established musicians but for the summer time because the students are off of school we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to showcase the young local talent and that's why it's called so fresh summer music series," said Lenny, with Pika adding, "I think they get a lot more experience playing in front of a packed restaurant. I think the more you play and the more time you have in front of an audience the better you get. They also are going to get a lot of exposure with our customer and we're blasting this on social media."

"We're using all our social media networking and sites to help promote the program and our artists. The biggest thing is to get them the exposure that they need," said Lenny.
