Veteran OPM band, Mayonnaise, is staging its first major show and opening this year’s One Music concert series with a blast with the “Akalain Mo Yun: Mayonnaise Live at the Music Museum” on June 29 (Saturday).
Fresh off the band’s recently released album, “Gusto Ko Lang Kasama Ka Palagi Pero Hindi Pwede,” and nationwide tour, the pop-rock group culminates its 17th anniversary in the industry with a headliner concert filled with their greatest hits and other musical surprises.
“When Gabi Na Naman and One Music emailed us, I was like wow. . . . It felt good because when we usually produce a show, we know what to expect. We sell ourselves. Now, the fact that a certain entity is wiling to risk and produce our concert, it is just surreal,” Monty Macalino, the lead vocalist, shared.
He also revealed the reason why it took them 17 years to hold the much-awaited concert.”Some people say we are an underrated band. Everybody loves an underdog story. We were known as a band who plays in the bar gigs, fairs, and music festivals, I guess we are just waiting for the right time,” he said.
Mayonnaise—which has released seven studio albums and three EPs and topped the charts with smash singles “Jopay,” “Bakit Part 2,” “Paraan,” “Tayo Na Lang Dalawa,” and “Kathryn”—is all set for this one-night show that will feature exciting collaborations with some of the biggest names in Pinoy rock, as well as special numbers backed by The Manila String Machine.
“Akalain Mo Yun: Mayonnaise Live at the Music Museum” is co-presented by Gabi Na Naman Productions, a company behind memorable concerts in the last three years, from Johnoy Danao, Ebe Dancel and Bullet Dumas’ IISA concert at the Kia Theatre to the collaborative show of Aia de Leon, Barbie Almalbis and Kitchie Nadal entitled Secrets.
ABS-CBN’s music portal One Music PH continues to connect the multi-talented Filipino artists and their fans in the digital world.

Since then, KZ Tandingan, Ebe Dancel, Janella Salvador, Inigo Pascual, Darren Espanto, Ylona Garcia, The Dawn, and the quartet of Loisa Andalio, Maris Racal, Sue Ramirez, and Kristel Fulgar have followed suit, each coming out with a different set, theme, and special guests.
