- Band History -
Saturday Avenue started with the lead guitarist, Johnry Valeriano and drummer, Michael Rodriguez last 2004. They are close friends that they decided to hold a jam together knowing that both of them know how to play musical instruments. Eventually, they decided to come up with a band after realizing that the blending of their music makes a new music which is suitable to the ear although their musical influences are far apart. Alvin Ancheta who is a Freelance bassist that time. And kel's bandmate since high school days decided to join the Saturday Avenue permanently. Meanwhile, the rhythm guitarist Mary Grace de Leon was invited by Michael to try out for the band. Subsequently, she found out that her music has a place for Saturday Avenues music and she in due course, determined to stay. Their vocalist, Lynes Celeste was discovered last. She was a drummer and a second vocalist of a band which was disbanded and in search of another band to pursue her passion in music, she found Saturday Avenue which was referred by a good friend. She then took the position of the vocalist after a series of jamming with the band.
- Where did Saturday Avenue name came from? -
The band, in search of their name, thought of different names that would suit their musicality. After a run of trials, they stayed on Saturday Avenue which sounded neither heavy nor soft which is parallel to their alternative pop rock genre. Saturday which was brought up due to the day they jam the most which is the day of Saturday and Avenue which was from Katipunan Avenue where the studio they first jam together is located.

Saturday Avenue is striving not for popularity but for the respect, value and appreciation of the people they show their music to. The band expects more hard work from each and every band members to gain these things and endurance to maintain in the music industry to show the people that they deserve such things.
