Boyce Avenue’s Fabian, Alejandro, and Daniel Manzano reveal how they stay faithful

021616-boycw.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano of Boyce Avenue agree that the best part of being famous is “not having a desk job.” Boyce Avenue is an American rock band and the most viewed independent band in the world.

Daniel continued, “I was an Attorney and we all had other jobs that we didn't love and so when the YouTube thing started working, we took a big gamble and we took pay cuts and we just quit all that.”

Alejandro added, “Since I was the youngest I never got to the position of having a full time job, but I did push carts at Wal-Mart.”


The attractive brothers were asked by host Boy Abunda how they keep faithful to their relationships given the attention they’re getting from women. Alejandro answered, “It’s pretty easy I mean you think of how you would want to be treated if the roles are reversed. You know I think a lot of this stems from our parents, we were just raised to be very loyal and very faithful in any relationship, whether it’s in a relationship with a significant other or as brothers to be loyal to each other…”

Fabian, who has been in a relationship with his wife since he was 16 years old (Fabian is now 31 years old), shared how he keeps his marriage happy. “I don't know, we have this kind of understanding. It just comes naturally. I don't know when I’m at home we spend a lot of time with each other, we hang out, she’s just very understanding.” When it comes to the brazen comments they’re getting on social media, he said his wife “doesn’t look into the comments too much and doesn’t get jealous.”

The band has almost eight million subscribers on YouTube and is popular for their covers. Asked how they choose what song to cover, Daniel answered, “At the end of the day for us, what really inspires us about music isn’t always just the sound but it's the lyrics and the emotions that it creates and I think from a very early point we decided to keep everything stripped in acoustic and to let the lyrics and the vocal performance really shine through. There’s a lot of like interesting guitar things involved but a lot of times it really comes down to do we love a song and do we think we can bring something out in it that maybe people had never heard before. And so a lot of times, that becomes taking a pop song that actually has lyrics or actually has depth to it and just bringing that out but we won’t ever do anything that we don't think we can make special or that we can make better.”
