1017 is a Davao-based quintet rock band formed in 1998 by a group of Davao Central College students. The band’s trademark includes their original rock novelty songs and the style of providing comic relief to their listeners. Al-ag brothers Jam-Jam Ruiz on lead vocals & guitar, Mackoy on vocals & guitar and their childhood friend Janpoy Fortich on drums came from Davao Central College. Band names came from Fatal Pandesal to Sonic Playground. Few years later, friends from the other band joined the group Beam-beam Longakit Jr. on bass & vocals and Chokoi Pasagui on guitars & vocals.
