PERFECT STRANGERS returns!
+ (Opening Act) GrapeGuitarBox (Indie/Pop/Folk/Alternative).
ENTRY Rs. 400/- AVAILABLE ON www.bookmyshow.com and also at BFlat
PERFECT STRANGERS returns to bFLAT after a hiatus of 8 months (which began at a concert they played at the very same place - their favourite venue, bFLAT)! A versatile band formed in 2013, they play both originals and covers, without restricting themselves to any genre. The band combines elements of pop, blues, progressive and jazz rock.
Don't be surprised if you hear a jazz-rock based original followed by a peppy pop-rock cover tune. But what you can expect is plenty of new material that demonstrates their versatility.
What really strikes you are the well-executed instrumental passages and the multi-part vocal harmonies that give them their unique sound.
To quote Debjeet, a founder member of the band - "I feel lucky to have found the right group of musicians with whom to make this comeback. It couldn't have been better"!
So come join the Strangers!
Raphael Emileenaa - Lead vocals
Pranav DM - Lead vocals
Debjeet Basu - Lead Guitar and vocals
Steve Rajan - Keyboard
Prashanth Gnanamuthu - Bass Guitar
Preran Pramod Gulvady - Drums
GrapeGuitarBox aka Teenasai Balamu is an Indie musician based out of Bangalore, India. She explores the alternative side of pop by interpreting popular songs in her own style, which is often very different from the original itself.
With her music, Teenasai wishes to create a space safe from labels, judgement, and discrimination; a space for all the misfits! She looks forward to collaborating with different kinds of artists in order to discover new sounds.
