Re-discovering music with Dust N' D' Attic

Christine said she was known as “kid that tagged along” with her father up until the time that she jammed with her brothers in high school.

“In reality, I had difficulty advancing as I barely read music notes and rather depended heavily on quick sound and hand muscle memory,” she said.

When not performing, Geoffrey works as a nurse at Novant Health. He's married with two kids. Ferdie works as a Network Administrator and is married with two kids and two adorable grandchildren.

Rommel and Christine have four teenage kids who take to their love of music. Jigs, who hails from Paco Manila, has a son and is still looking for his partner for life.

Rommel migrated to the US with his family in 2006 and resigned from the military. He's now the director of Home Care for CareOptima which provides in-home care services for seniors.

On kicking off their team two years ago, Dust N' D' Attic recruited a guy named Spikes who takes care of their tuning during gigs. Christine says Spike is an honorary band member.

Aside from the “Smile in Your Heart” concert of Jam Morales, Dust ‘N D Attic performed their first band gig at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) front act for Gabby Concepcion Concert.They also performed at the Dream Nightclub in Matthews, North Carolina.
