Bohol's Jazz Duo: Gigi & Jun


Geraldine, the lead vocalist of Jazz Duo is an alluring chanteuse, a talented warbler and an explosive dynamite whose amazing vocal range and strong stage presence have been her trademark since she started in the live entertainment scene. 

Making up the other half of the celebrated duo is talented Jun whose proven virtuosity with the guitar and wizardry with the keyboard has brought him overseas including stints in cruise liners and first rate music lounges in five star hotels and resorts

Together, Geraldine and Jun never fail to dish out memorable performances that captivate and enthrall even the most discriminating audiences. 

They cater to almost all musical genres from Standards to Jazz, from Mainstream to Bossa Nova, from Reggae to RnB and to dance hits from the 70’s Disco Era and the 80’s 

The pair formed Jazz Duo early 2010 and had regular performing gigs at Cebu’s Plantation Bay Resort and in premier resorts in Bohol including the Bohol Beach Club

When asked for their most memorable gig since they started their partnership three years ago, they proudly narrated to us how during the Amore Visa Launching of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) last November 15, 2012 at Ayala Terraces, Cebu City and the Awarding & Recognition Program of Philippine National Bank Life where they were invited to provide the musical entertainment, they brought the house down and they were surprised and of course, absolutely thrilled with the appreciative guests’ clamor for an encore. 

The first time I saw them perform at a big wedding reception at one of the fabulous resorts here in Bohol, I was simply blown away especially with Geraldine’s unique interpretation of Astrud Gilberto’s pure unadulterated bossa nova classics. 

Jun’s passionate and magical guitar performance and rock star vocals sealed the deal for me. 

I have become a huge fan since then 

Presently, Jazz Duo is one of the most sought after in the live entertainment scene in Bohol especially during weddings, debuts, reunions and even in corporate affairs where their inimitable style and showmanship never fail to entertain. 

When asked what makes them click, both Geraldine and Jun chorused 
”You can never go wrong with a strong sense of professionalism, hard work, and excellent customer satisfaction” 
Cheers then to Jazz Duo as it continues to weave musical magic and rhythmic artistry

HERE'S AN INTERESTING TRIVIA: 

Did you know that during her younger days, Geraldine Bojo also known as Gigi was once a candidate for the most coveted beauty title in Bohol?

Yes folks, Gigi competed in the 1996 Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant

She represented the Municipality of Bilar in the most prestigious beauty competition of the province where she emerged runner up to Lianne Reyes Canoy of Maribojoc.

Two days before the Coronation Night, a separate event was held for the Talent Competition. Her dazzling vocal stylings, stage presence and showmanship made her the unanimous choice for Miss Talent

Our 17 year old friendship started during the 1996 Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant considered as the most controversial edition of the pageant but then, that is another story
