Bandra rocks, Prayag style

Talk about hectic schedules!

In between the album recording – which is now over, we are happy to inform you -- we had a fun time playing at the Celebrate Bandra festival at the scenic Reclamation waterfront in Mumbai on November 23. And that itself was a miracle.

All of us were dog tired with the gruelling office-recording-gig 26-hour-day schedule we have been keeping lately, and to top it off, we had just 10 minutes to soundcheck while the other band, Swarathma, got an hour and a half.

Not their fault, really, and the folk-rockers from Bengaluru are very nice guys and good musicians, but -- as we are tired of saying -- the organisers of such events should clearly demarcate soundcheck times and see to it that the schedules are adhered to.

But all that was forgotten as we charged through a one-hour, all original set. The highlight of the evening were a bunch of kids jumping around on stage. Sumit was overheard muttering that if any of them stepped on his pedals he would chuck them into the Arabian Sea, yards away.

Before we go, don’t forget to look for our album Udaan, which should be in stores before you enter into 2010.

Also, please please please sign up at our network on Ibibo (Click Here), because that’s where you’ll find all the goodies (preview clips etc) from now on.

As always, here are a few pictures taken by a fan-cum-friend, Meenaz Lala.

Prayag Live @ the Kala Ghoda Festival of India

The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is a veritable Mumbai institution, and we have had the pleasure of performing there last year.

Evidently, the good folks at Kala Ghoda liked what they heard, because this year, we played at the Kala Ghoda Festival of India on November 2.

Swapnil lost his Dad 48 hours before the show. And since the show had to go on, we got our good friend & awesome musician Amit 'Amz' Ahuja to fill in - learn the songs in a day's notice and play the gig - and how.

We rocked this season even harder than last time, nevertheless. With a new member - Prasad Ruparel duelling on the guitar along with Sumit – to boot.

We had a gala time playing some brand new songs to the fairly mixed audience - Langoor was madness!

We leave you with a few pictures of the gig. Special thanks to Dilip Nair for capturing some wonderful moments.

See you at the Celebrate Bandra Festival on the 23rd of November, Reclamation promenade, Bandra (7:00 PM)
