The band was formed in September 2016 with the rhythm guitars (Nitesh, Kiran), vocals (Himanshu, Anant and Johnson), the drum (Rajat) and percussions (Lokesh). We initially started with acoustic and unplugged sessions in the cafeterias performing sufi and bollywood genres. We always looked for more opportunities to present ourselves and we did find a few. Since, the band was formed by the employees of a corporate, one of the guitarists (Kiran) and a vocalist (Johnson) had to leave which left the band with only one guitarist.
Later, after struggling for a long time finding a bass guitarist, we were approached by Shikhar who filled our Music with the bass we were looking for. Still, we missed something and one fine day, Abhimanyu approached us. Finally, we had a lead guitarist and we were all set.
We came across a lot of opportunities to perform in many big corporate events inside the organisation and outside too.
Being a part of another band, Rajat had to leave which gave an opportunity with open doors to one of the most deserving drummers Sudarshan (Moussak) who was already very keen to join us. Today, the band has 5 members who know only one thing - Music.
Man with many hats- Mou Ssak is a
drum kit wizard and has the ability to
make people groove through his
high-voltage pulsating drum-beats.
Mou has also done VISHARAD in
playing Tabla and has already
released his own original song in
Hailing from Assam, its tough to tell
if his hands are smoother with drum
sticks or chopsticks.
With his genre-agnostic voice, Anant
seamlessly makes audience dance on
his tunes. His soulful adlibs and lyrical
genius can not just recreate the retro
magic but also bring the peppiness of
new age Bollywood songs.
Youngest on the block, Abhimanyu
Chhetri steals away the limelight with his
neat solos in almost every composition.
This quiet looking bomb truly believes in
‘let your work do the talking’ and adds
phenomenally to band’s sound.
Rumor has it that “How is the josh”
was coined by audience during one of
Himanshu’s performance. His jumps on
the stage are as high as his scale. This
passionate singer makes Sufi Songs
sound like a child’s play.
Apart from weaving magic with his
voice, Himanshu adds rhythm to the
band with his guitar skills.
Man behind the bass is a true
boss on stage with his dashing
looks and impeccable grip on his
instrument. Shikhar when not
killing the audience with his
looks, hold the band tight with his
exhilarating fusion of various
metal, jazz, folk, indie and soft
