Held at P.J. Hindu Gymkhana on 14th October, Red Bull Tour Bus Off The Roof featured the likes of Amit Trivedi, Skyharbor, PrateekKuhad and more
October, 2017: Celebrating yet another birthday in spectacular fashion, the Red Bull Tour Bus threw a massive party at the P.J. Hindu Gymkhana on the evening of 14th October, which featured the likes of superstar composer and singer Amit Trivedi, metal band Skyharbor, singer-songwriter PrateekKuhad, ambient electronic music artist Komorebi and indie/folk/alternative band When Chai Met Toast.
Kicking off proceedings for the night was When Chai Met Toast, a band from Cochin recognised for their infectiously happy music – and as they began their set, it became immediately apparent why. Fans danced and sang along, smiles on the faces of all in attendance.
The electronic music project of TaranaMarwah, Komorebi was up next, and played a highly enjoyable set of newer material from her recently released album, Soliloquy, as well as some older material. Her set guest featured guitarist Warren Mendonsa, who also features on her latest record.
PrateekKuhad was on next, and received a rousing welcome as he took to the stage. His set comprised largely of newer, unreleased material, interspersed with older crowd favourites such as RaatRaazi – which saw a massive cheer from fans, who sang along to every word.
The penultimate act for the night was metal band Skyharbor, who played their first show atop the Red Bull Tour Bus. This was also the band’s first gig in India following a hugely successful tour of Europe, where they also supported Deftones earlier in the year, and their fan base was out in numbers to witness it.
Closing the night in spectacular fashion was Amit Trivedi, with his live band, who played close to an hour and a half long set. The band performed some of the composer/singer’s most popular songs from films such as Wake Up Sid, Udta Punjab and Dev D, and had the entire crowd singing along with every word.
