It had been a very busy week with extensive traveling and hence there were no updates possible from our end. The bands Shonai and The Bodhisattwa Trio performed on 1st of June at antiSOCIAL pub in Khar, Mumbai. The entire performance was witnessed by a meagre 25 people in the audience including celebrity guitarist Mr. Ehsaan Noorani. The lack of promotion and a weak PR strategy made the concert invisible to public eyes.
Last Sunday Syncopation nicely concluded the Delhi chapter of The Foxtrot Project V2 tour at The Piano Man. The band along with their popular tracks Patiala, Shaken Not Stirred and Homegrown, also performed 3 news tunes. The audience was amazed when they performed their version of classic broadway standard ‘My Favourite Things’.

The Jazz-Rock trio yesterday descended on the stage of The Piano Man last night to win hearts. The band started their set with their staple kick-starter Section+Transcendence in the dimly lit Piano Man Club. The club had their reservations full on 24th itself.
The band stormed through the setlist comprising of Heart Of Darkness, Cronos, and Convergence (new tune for Foxtrot). They also played two of their new tunes Train To Auschwitz and American Dream. The band with finesse amazed the crowd. They earned a shower of compliments not only from the audience but also from the club owner, Arjun Sagar Gupta. This was a clear winner so far in the entire Delhi chapter of the Foxtrot album tour.
Their next stop will be Mumbai where they will play with Shonai at antiSOCIAL, Khar on 1st of June. The next gig today is Syncopation from 9-30pm.
Shonai with his trio had made people swing to their tune last night. Featuring his fellow guitarists Bodhisattwa Ghosh and Rohan Ganguli was a bonus for the audience.
The show started with their new funk tune Walking On Air which is on The Foxtrot Project V2 album. The first half the trio showcased most of their tunes with they do best, Bebop and Swing. Second half started with the trio playing Shonai’s tribute track for Bebop legend of India, Mr. Carlton Kitto. For ‘An Ode To Mr. Kitto’ Shonai used the upright piano that is set up at the club. Then Rohan Ganguli joined the band for two tunes. Post that guitarist Bodhisattwa Ghosh joined them for band’s version of Maiden Voyage and another standard Sunny.
