The Hindustan Times CyberHub Friday Jam presented by Honda, powered by G-Shock, in association with KR Mangalam University, celebrated Mother’s Day this Friday.

Celebrating Mother’s Day, members of the famous social networking group, Gurgaon Moms, participated in the event. They sang several melodious numbers, celebrating motherhood and marking the special occasion. Children were seen accompanying their mothers to the event.

Three bands — Restless Redzz, Revolution 21 and Sabr — set the HT Friday Jam stage on fire this Friday.

Restless Redzz, a nine-member band that was formed in 2005, rocked the stage with their performance. The band sang all original compositions, including Dil Se and Be The Best.

“It was a big opportunity to perform on the Friday Jam stage. It gives novice musicians a chance to reach out to people. The audience was very supportive. The cheers and applause boosted our confidence, which made us give more than 100% to our performance,” Rahul Kapoor of Restless Redzz, said.

The next band to perform was Revolution 21. Formed in 2012, the band with their enthusiasm and talent swept the audience. The band performed several famous numbers, including Tum Hi Ho, Tere Aane Se, Its Time and Teri Kasam.

“This is the first time we participated in Friday Jam. We performed self-composed numbers and a few famous Bollywood songs. The audience sang along with us and this made us very happy,” said Nikhil Arora of Revolution 21.

The third band, Sabr, was formed a couple of months ago and has five members in the group. The band performed popular songs like Dil Chahta hai, Hare Ram Hare Ram from the movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Tu Hai Ki Nahi, etc. The band also performed some original compositions.

“We sang Hindi songs with a mix of electronic music. We love to experiment with progressive Indian rock and luckily the people appreciated our music. HT Friday Jam is a great event and hats off to the team,” said Aakash Tiwari of Sabr.

The music event has become a weekend getaway for many in Delhi-NCR.

“My family loves music and each Friday we witness different bands through an initiative that boosts the confidence of amateur musicians. It gives them a platform to perform and encourages them to keep going,” said Pragya Singh of DLF.
