Three bands selected by music lovers in Delhi and national capital region rocked the first episode of the semi-final of Hindustan Times Cyberhub Friday Jam Season 3 presented by Honda, powered by G-Shock, in association with KR Mangalam University.
The bands— Nisarg, The Silhouette Hearts and Rangreza— mesmerised the audience with their music and gave them quite a relaxing evening.
The first band to perform was Nisarg. The six-member band had the crowd swinging to the tunes with their peppy performances. The band sang both original compositions and famous Bollywood numbers.
“It was great to perform at the HT Friday Jam stage for the second time. The audience was very supportive. We hope that Nisarg is able to make a mark with the audience,” said Sonal Mangret, a member of the band.
The next band to take to the stage was nine-member The Silhouette Hearts. The band with two singers left the audience enthralled. Many in the crowd were seen dancing to the beats.
“Performing on the Friday Jam stage again was a big opportunity. The stage gives musicians like us an opportunity to reach out to the people. The response that we got from the audience boasted our moral and inspired us to continue entertaining the people,” said Ashutosh Shardha, a member of the band.
The last band to mesmerise the audience was Rangreza. The six members of the band, known for its Sufi and alternate music, said they enjoyed HT Friday Jam stage even more this time.
“We are very happy and excited to perform here. This stage has made us popular among the people of Gurgaon and we have received a lot of appreciation. I hope we get a chance to play in the finale,” said Yuvraj Sharma, a member of the band.
“We received great responses from audience through Facebook every time we performed at the HT Friday Jam stage. The event has given us recognition,” Sharma said.
With the HT Friday Jam nearing the finale, music lovers in the city appeared disappointed that their favourite weekend engagement will come to an end soon.
“I love attending Friday Jam. Everyone who comes to perform or listen are music lovers like me. It is sad that HT Friday Jam is getting over soon,” said Nandini Singh, a resident of Gurgaon.
