Fans have a good time

Bangalore-based fusion rock band Lagori may have done the rounds of all the music venues in the City. But the band really knows how to give their fans a good time!

Combining Indian classical melodies with rock music and singing in both Hindi with Kannada, they performed at Hard Rock Café recently with a 90-minute set of originals and covers.

The band started off with their staple Maha Ganapathi, quickly following it up with songs like Jeene Do, ‘River Song’, ‘Kashmir’, Darbari and Duniya. A lot of variety was presented with each tune and some interesting covers like Madari from ‘Coke Studio’ and Pardesi from ‘Dev D’ were also performed.

The second half of the set got even more interesting with energy-packed songs like Lagori, Aasma, Ni Re Sa and Hadimba but they saved the best for last and ended with their most popular song Boom Shankar, which was a crowd favourite.

Visibly impressed by the musicians on the tiny stage, the audience made their appreciation felt by singing along during the choruses and cheering them on throughout. “Their performance was undoubtedly the most entertaining We couldn’t stop tapping our feet to the music. Lagori completely ruled the event – they really created an aura on stage with their music and passion,” said Kiran, an audience member.

Equally excited about both the Hindi and Kannada songs, the crowd let their hair down, put on their dancing shoes and showed the band how much they were enjoying the music.

“It was one of the best performances at Hard Rock Café,” said Janvi, who attended the concert. “The band members were bursting with energy and their interaction with the audience made it even more enjoyable. They did a great job with every single tune and it was a solid performance. We had a hell of a time,” she added. Geeth Vaz, the band’s guitarist, said that the band had an amazing time playing the gig.

“Hard Rock Café has always been a special venue to us as a band. It brings out the best in us while performing and it’s a great set up to play at. This time, we packed the house with more than 200 people who sang almost every song that we played. And in most of them, the audience was louder than us!” he said.
