Ton Vergel De Dios believes being a musician is a plus factor in his job as a MYX VJ


Aside from being a college student and playing for two rock bands, Ton Vergel De Dios is also one of the newest VJs of MYX, together with Julz Savard and Robin Nievera. Ton hopes he’ll be able to manage his time among his duties. “Sanayan lang siguro ‘yan sa schedule. I think kaya naman and I’m very thankful that MYX has been kind to me with my schedule. I’m still getting used to the routine.”

Ton also sees being a MYX VJ as an opportunity for him to widen his appreciation of music, outside of the rock genre that he loves. “Hindi naman pwedeng rock music lang lagi ang patugtugin sa MYX, as much as I would love it. There’s different audiences din so you have to respect that. ‘Yung ibang tao gusto rin ng ibang music. I don’t intend to use MYX to promote my music or rock music alone. I’m thankful also na nago-grow din ‘yung pagtingin ko sa music, hindi lang puro rock.

When asked if he is also open to trying other fields like acting, Ton said that for now aside from MYX, his priority are his bands, Hansom and Tonight We Sleep. “Sa ngayon I try to focus muna on music. My two bands are almost done with our very first album. We’ll be releasing them very soon. Kaya malaking tulong na I won dito sa MYX because I can now tell people about my bands. Dati pa we’ve been playing na rin ilang beses sa mga MYX events.”

Nevertheless, the 21-year old wasn’t shy to name his showbiz crushes. “Being in ABS-CBN talaga madaming kang makikitang magaganda. Nandiyan si Cristine Reyes, Kim Chiu, madami talaga.”
