    Similar threads are floating around, so I thought make one for Bangalore. Even though I am not from Bangalore for all practical purposes I am settled in Bangalore currently. So lets mingle.

    The idea of the thread is share new of happening Music Events, Competitions, Gigs, etc.. In any of your band is playing, we can try catching you there or maybe our bands can even gig together. I am sure it will help us in knowing about the scene and also help us getting more gigs :think: or whatever.

    This can also help in a bit of local musician classified, so that when you band has a requirements you can rope in somebody easily. Also a chance to know and meet up people and jam.

    Somebody please make this thread sticky. I dont have enough points to do that.

    Please dont spam here or make any unrelated discussions here. For long I was expecting somebody to make some kind of thing like this for Bangalore.

    Start of with

    1. What Instrument You Play.
    2. What Band You Play and What Style.
    3. Influences.
    4. Your Music Style.
    5. Any Gig in the immediate future.

    Let me kick start off the thread

    1. Instrument: Mainly Lead and Rhythm. Always prefer a single guitarist approach for a band like Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple. But I do play with a second guitarist too. Used to be a drummer more than 10 years back and did a few gigs. But now totally lost in touch, so cannot do much now

    2. Bands: Played for Sailing Ships a Blues Rock Jam Band, did a gig and great jam sessions. Currently inactive. Played for another nameless band which played Blues Rock. We were about to play Live in Palace Grounds but then something happened and the band disbanded. Played for Sacrilege, a Death Metal and Black Metal band. Played one gig which didn't go well because of Sound Problems on stage. Current state is disbanded. Currently playing for Spellbound, a classic Metal band focussing on 80s Metal and mainly original compositions. This band is formed very recently and we haven't had much of jam sessions.

    3. Influences: Too many. Mainly Ritchie Blackmore, Tony Iommi, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Clapton and specially Ritchie Kotzen to a large extent.

    4. Personally prefer to play free gigs everyday and play total jams like Greatful Dead, Phish or Govt.Mule. Dont play like this because not good enough to play like them. I play mostly 60s, 70s Blues Rock and play it in a different way. I do play a bit of Metal because of the band I play in, otherwise I dont. Currently interest in shifting towards playing Acoustic maybe things like Beatles, Jethro Tull, Led Zep or Tesla.

    5. We are playing at the Indian Institute of Science on 29th or 30th. I dont have any details 'cos I am not involved in these things. I just go there and play. Will update if I get further details. We might play the October Sunday Jam but this is not sure because I might be out of station then. Hope to catch you guys in the Sunday Jam or the IISc Fest.
