Residents of Delhi-NCR flocked to DLF CyberHub on Friday to cool off the summer heat with enjoyable musical performances at Season 3 of Hindustan Times CyberHub Friday Jam, presented by Honda, powered by G-Shock in association with KR Mangalam University.

The bands — PSM, Bhor and Zehan — had the audience on its feet with their music. The enthusiasm of the audience propelled the bands to perform at their best.

The first band to take to the Friday Jam stage was the 10-member PSM. The members, students of Parikrama School of Music, started off the evening with mesmerising numbers and had the audience swaying to their lyrics and tunes.

PSM will rock the Delhi-NCR stage at their annual concert in the Capital on May 23.

“We enjoyed playing at the DLF CyberHub. Music is our passions and HT is providing a wonderful platform for musicians to experiment with confidence,” Arjun Bhatia, a band member, said. The audience cheered the hardest when the band performed its original compositions.

Picking up where PSM had left off, Zehan band came up with a powerful performance. The four-member band from Jammu performed famous Hindi and Bollywood songs. Members of the audience could not remain seated and were grooving to the numbers.

“What is better than the entire audience grooving to our music and beats? We are lucky to have been given the opportunity by Hindustan Times,” Chetan Sanmotra, a member, said.

The last band to perform was Bhor. The band played popular Sufi songs and helped relieve the tensions of the listeners.

“The playlist was chosen according to the popularity of songs. The audience appreciated our music and we hope that they will continue to support us,” Sumit Garg, a band member, said.

The event, which started as an initiative to bring music and melodies to Gurgaon, is turning into a one-stop destination for music lovers.

“I live in Dwarka and drive all the way to CyberHub every Friday to watch the new and young musicians perform. Hindustan Times Friday Jam celebrates music in its purest form and hats off to them for the initiative,” Anurag Kashyap, who works with a multinational company in Gurgaon, said.
