This Thursday evening, the 20th May, Parachute XVI will be entertaining rock lovers at the Hard Rock Cafe. The members of the band include Ananth Menon on the guitars & vocals, Ganesh K on the bass & vocals and Gurudarshan Somayaji on the drums & the percussion.
Not many Indian bands record in the first few months of their existence, as several are content jamming around covers trying to find themselves. However, Parachute XVI jumped head first into Acoustic Garden and recorded a 4-song EP titled Sodium Trail And The Current Beantown Voice, that was released early September 2009.
The band is mostly influenced by Porcupine Tree, Pure Reason Revolution, Riverside, the Beatles, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, OSI, Camel, and King Crimson, among others.
Please contact the venue at 6660-4242 for further details.
