"At first kasi may mangilan-ngilan na kaming nakitang nagsuntukan doon, nag-away doon na players, nagkagulo. Kaya noong una ang impression ko baka may nagsuntukan na naman. Baka may nag-away na naman. Pero noong pangalawang bugso ng takbuhan, parang iba na. Tapos mayroon na kaming narinig na putok nga kasi second floor 'yon. Masyadong malaki ang lugar kaya 'yung tunog ng putok ay maririnig mo talaga na automatic rifle ang ginagamit.”
"Sabi ko nga sa mga tao, huwag kayong mag-alala, don't panic, para di magkagulo. Pero sabi ko nga, noong second wave na ng takbuhan ng tao, eh hindi na ako nagsalita. Bumaba kami, pinababa ko 'yung grupo, 'yung banda, at pumunta kami sa dressing room. Kasi sa dressing room, may exit at doon kami lumabas"
