MUMBAI: Music lovers in the city were present at the Hard Rock Café yesterday evening to witness the Bacardi Weekender, a series of parties that are being held as a lead to the Bacardi NH7 Weekender. The magic of music came alive under one roof with Indus Creed, Soulmate and Spud in The Box.
Spud in the Box is a six-piece Alternative Pop-Rock band formed in March 2011 in Mumbai. Their performance involved the musical energies of Zubin Bhathena on bass, Rohan Rajadhakshya on vocals and keyboards, Ankit Dayal on vocals and guitar, and Hartej Sawhney and Siddharth Talwar on guitars. They were witnessed creating an amazing amalgamation of acoustic rock/rock and roll that had the audience enthralled.
Inspired by the roots and groove sounds of the Blues, Blues-Rock, Soul, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Funk and R&B, Soulmate was formed in Shillong, in October 2002 when Rudy Wallang and Tipriti Kharbangar decided to form a band dedicated to playing the Blues and spreading awareness about this important genre of music. And since then, even in yesterday’s performance, the Blues played by them enthralled the audience. Rudy and Tripti were joined by Leon Wallang on Bass Guitar, Paltimon Pyrtuh on Drums & Raveen Panday on Keyboards.
Indus Creed, the trailblazing band, had set the stage for what we recognize today as the definitive rock movement in India: unshackled, pathbreaking, well-produced original music embodying the spirit of free expression and individuality. Indus Creed were large and loud.
It was indeed a perfect blend of varied music genres which made the Saturday night roar high on fun with an amazing response to the artistes.
