One of the first popular Filipino ballerinas was Bobby Gonzales, whose major hit was "Hahabul-Habol"

Bobby actually started in the 1950's with Bayani Casimiro's entertainment group, Bayani's Merry-Go-Round. But good friend German Moreno, whose birthday it was (Oct. 4) when Bobby died, remembers watching the singer for the first time at the King’s Theater somewhere in Ongpin. Bobby, so German claims, sounded so much like Frankie Lane and a bit of Johnny Rey. When he sang Cry, the crowd cheered on and really went wild.

That was sometime in the mid 50s when German was still working as a janitor/telonero at the Clover Theater, when Clover also featured stage shows with movies as intermission the theater signed up Bobby Gonzalez as one of its regular performers.

Bobby became an instant hit at Clover Theater. Glittery American suits and sequined Barong Tagalog become his signature attire.

As a headliner then, Bobby often had to sing as many as 20 songs per show and there were three shows in one day (1, 3 and 9 p.m.)! "That time, paramihan ng kanta, which was why you had to know a lot of songs," volunteers German. This was the edge of Bobby Gonzales. He had a wide repertoire of songs. In every show, however, he had to sing Cry because the audience always asked for that. Next was Sunny Side of the Street.

After his Vegas stint, Bobby returned to the Philippines and even conquered local television. This was sometime in 1967. Pancho Magalona was then entering politics and had to take a leave from his daily grind as the main host of Magandang Tanghali in the old ABS-CBN Channel 3. bobby was taken in to pinch-hit for Pancho.

Roberto Delprado Yulo Enriquez (1943–1996), better known as Bobby Enriquez, was a Filipino jazz pianist who became prominent in the United States and well-known internationally as "the Wildman," a title he earned through his very hyper piano playing. A virtuoso who was largely self-taught from the age of four, Enriquez was a professional by the time he was 14. In the 1960s, he played in Manila, Hong Kong, and Honolulu, becoming Don Ho's musical director for a time. He arrived on the mainland in the early '70s, toured with Richie Cole during 1980-1981, and made his debut on record in 1981. Enriquez cut eight albums for GNP/Crescendo during 1981-1985, which made his reputation. His technique and ability to think very fast were quite impressive. He also recorded for Portrait (1987) and a 1990 date for the Japanese Paddle Wheel label has been issued domestically on Evidence

Born on the island of Negros just north of Mindanao. his first love was the piano but his mother wanted him to concentrate on schoolwork. he started his professional career as a musician at the age of 14, sneaking out his second floor bedroom window at night to play gigs and when his mother found out what he was doing at night she shut down the piano and told him to concentrate on homework. So he ran away from home and went to Manila. Once in Manila, he joined various jazz groups and from there he played in Taipei and Hong Kong where he met such jazz luminaries as Mel Torme', Lionel Hampton, Tito Puente, and Chico Hamilton. And eventually he landed a major gig at the famed Golden Dragon Lounge in Honolulu, and while in Hawaii he became Don Ho's orchestra leader and musical director.

In 1967, he arrived in Los Angeles and played briefly for The Sunspots, before moving to Hawaii where he became Don Ho's musical director. He also performed with Amapola Cabase from 1976 to 1977 in Japantown, San Francisco, California, followed by appearances at the Wagon Wheel, and eventually Harrah's Hotel In Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Alto saxophonist Richie Cole discovered him there and asked him to join his band. Enriquez participated in several Richie Cole albums in the 1980s, most notably Alive! at the Village Vanguard and the groundbreaking The Madman Meets The Wild Man.

He recorded a number of astonishing jazz albums for Crescendo Records in the 1980s and was known as "the Wildman" for his unpredictable yet engrossing piano style.
