What should the audience expect with the third instalment of Simply The Blues?

It’s the Festive Season.. and what better way to spread the cheer than by bringing down India’s best Blues Band…Yes that’s right, SOULMATE from Shillong shall be taking stage. Opening the evening shall be SMOKESTACK from Pune, a very progressive Blues band, with a harmonica section to it, adding a different charm to the Blues.

 

It’s the second last concert for STB, how do you feel? How has the journey been so far?

We have crossed the half way mark, and are quite excited at the response we have got so far. Musicians from across the country are asking if they could be part of the event, when they would get a chance to perform on our platform.

All the artistes who have performed so far have raved about the audience response, and how well the event has been put together. Our guests and even the artistes performing are taken up by the fact that a small company such as ours is actually taking the effort to promote Indian Blues artistes on a regular basis. Looking forward we know that the only way to promote the beautiful genre of Blues music, is by spreading awareness of the form, as well as the Indian musicians who are in the forefront of it, the upcoming talent that we have. Our premise that providing a platform to young talent will be the driving force for taking the Blues to the youth, has been proven right, as at our 2 events we have had an equal mix of young and mature audience.

 

Tell us something different that you as Organizers have done at this concert when compared to the previous ones?

Each event crafted so far has been different and appealing. There is a surprise element in each. We have some surprises in store for this event too, and with SOULMATE set to storm the stage, there is only one thing left to do…get out and grab your tickets now
