The Saturday Night Blues Band Live at HAZE, Vasant Vihar
Parikrama Inc. and Blues Club of India presents "The Saturday Night Blues Band" Live at HAZE, Vasant Vihar on July 8th (Saturday), 2006.
The Saturday Night Blues Band, one of the leading western music bands, as well as the only mainstream blues band, in India, was formed in October 1999.
The Band consists of some of the cream of Kolkata’s working musicians – Jayanta Dasgupta (lead guitar/slide guitar/blues-harp/vocals), Arunima Dasgupta (vocals/percussion), Stuart Munro (bass/vocals), Sumith Ramachandran (guitar), and Jeffrey Rikh (drums/vocals). They perform regularly (every Saturday night) at Someplace Else, the “Music Mecca” of Kolkata (The Park, Park Street, Kolkata).
Under the guidance of Jayanta Dasgupta (a veteran in the scene for over 25 years, and a guitar graduate from the Guitar Institute of Technology, Musician’s Institute, Hollywood) the band has been playing it’s forte of blues, Blues Rock and Jazz Blues, to a full house since January 2000. Starting from the Delta blues of Mississippi, to the more chic yet groovy sounds of Chicago, they cover artists like Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, CCR, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Doors, to name a few.
The band has also done a lot of special events showcasing artists such as The Beatles, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones and Dire Straits as well as a “Rock ‘n’ Roll Nite”. Always open to experimentation, they specialize in creating their own versions of cover songs and long instrumental jam sessions.
Soulmate the band, which needs no introduction, will also be performing at the same Venue on July 7th (Friday), 2006.
Time: 9:00 PM Onwards.
