Was that a wedding picture or what?

BAGUIO CITY?You can take the Session Road Band out of Session Road but you can?t take the road out of the band.

When vocalist and rhythm guitarist Hannah Romawac married long-time boyfriend Javier ?Javy? Olives on June 16, her brothers Chavi (drummer, band leader) and JV (percussionist), lead guitarist Coy Placido, bassist Jal Taguibao, and keyboardist Jesse Hoover?plus friends and relatives?tried to make the whole-day event as close to home as possible.

The wedding at the St. Joseph Church was kept very private, said Ferdie Balanag, an old friend of the couple?s. ?Their theme song is ?Somewhere Over the Rainbow,?? Balanag said.

During the reception at the Baguio Country Club, only tapuy (native rice wine) was served with the festive food. Igorot dancers in G-strings and tapis (native skirt) ?blessed? the jars of wine, beat the gongs and led the dancing.

But the tapuy was served in crystal glasses, not in the usual coconut shell. Another local band, Rewind, played reggae and R&B to the sound of the gongs. When Hannah danced with her ailing father, Tony Romawac?the ?funniest shaman? in his younger days?there wasn?t a dry eye in the hall.

The event was concluded with a Session Road Band concert on their favorite street. Frank Cimatu, PDI Northern Luzon Bureau

Back to partying

LORNA Tolentino seems to have lost the eight pounds she gained while taking care of her famous ?patient,? husband Rudy ?Daboy? Fernandez. She earlier explained the weight gain, thus: ?We ate together.?

The two were spotted at Ruffa Gutierrez?s birthday party last weekend. Looking good!

Dockers Award

FILIPINO filmmaker Ellen Ongkeko-Marfil?s ?Mga Pusang Gala? recently won the Dockers First Feature Award at the 30th Frameline, or San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Film Festival.

The award came with a cash prize of $10,000.

Ellen is seen at left (coat in arm) with former classmates now based in the Bay Area, and some gay revelers.
