PHLPost Mourns the Passing of Pinoy Music Icon Dennis Garcia

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) mourns the loss of Mr. Dennis Garcia, founding member of the legendary Filipino band, Hotdog and older brother of Rene Garcia, the band’s lead singer who was recently honored by PHLPost along with Joey “Pepe” Smith and Rico J. Puno with their own commemorative postage stamps as part of its recently launched “Pinoy Music Icons”.

As a pioneer of the popular Manila Sound that began in the mid-1970s, Mr. Garcia wrote most of the band’s biggest hits in tandem with his brother Rene. The legacy of Hotdog did not stop after the latter has passed away as Dennis remained active in advocating the promotion of Filipino culture through the postage stamps that he hopes will also honor other Pinoy Music Icons in the future.

Their musical genre mirrored not only the distinctive music of the era but also the sentiments of many Filipinos toward their culture and homeland.

“The postage stamp is our way of honoring the band’s important role in linking the past and present generations through their own brand of music”, PHLPost said in a statement.

PHLPost added that “they will forever be grateful to “Mr. D” for his selfless attitude in supporting the successful launch of the “Pinoy Music Icons” commemorative stamps and icons memorabilia exhibit at PHLPost”.

“Even as we mourn his loss, we will continue to celebrate his remarkable life and the musical legacy that the brothers Dennis and Rene have shared with the Filipino people”, PHLPost said.
