Pop Punk
Based in Winnipeg the exciting power pop punk trio – The 1221 – was originally formed in Manila Philippines. Young energetic and performance driven the numerically-named act consists of three talented brothers: Roman Maceda (vocals/guitars) and twins Rico Maceda (bass/vocals) and Roque Maceda (drums).

The Maceda brothers simply carried on with their strong passion in music when they came to Canada. Their sound is an exciting blend of precision modern punk rock tunes with a striking power rock n’ roll presentation. They cite these artists as their musical influences: The Police The Kinks, Green Day and Blink-182.

The 1221 was chosen as winners for the 2019 Jim Beam National Talent Search in Winnipeg. They performed at 92.1 CITI FM and at The Village Idiots’ Facebook live series Live At The Roslyn. In 2018 The 1221 toured Manila Philippines, the band’s second time performing at their home country and has been featured in one of the Philippines’ well known radio/television company GMA Network. They’ve been busy around Winnipeg as well with performances on Canada Day at The Forks and opening for touring artists like Arnel Pineda (current frontman of Journey) at Club Regent Event Centre and The Garrick. The trio has been featured as winners for University Of Winnipeg’s The Uniter Fiver Music Issue 2018 and have been part of Indie Week music festival held in Toronto.
