One Way Traffic is a blues funk rock band based in southern metro manila. Formed by OJ Zabala (bass) and Gerry Villaroman (vocals) in 2005 with Dex Buenagua (drums) and Benedict Garcia (guitars) from another funk rock band Segundo. In December 2006, they started to recorded their 7 song demo cd at Anthony Cabatit's home studio (kooltrax), who in February 2007, completed the demo cd after recording all the guitar tracks, and officially became their guitarist. In May 2007, Gerry left for the states and eventually leaving the band. Then in October 2007, after weeks of practice, Paolo Acabado became the band's new vocalist.
2008 was a steady year for the band, combining good and bad times at its best. One way traffic's song "nawawala ang liwanag" was given some airtime in RJUR 105.9, played regular gigs in Purple Haze Bar in Tomas Morato and One Luv Reggae Bar in Sucat and in other venues/productions around the metro till the later part of the year where schedule problem and conflicts in interest struck the band.
2009, The band needs to move on, so... the band became a three piece group, where the rhythm section took over the vocal parts. Still rockin' after all these years \m/
The band name "One Way Traffic" was first used by OJ's dad's band during the 70's.
