A Rocking Summer Night.

Ever heard Bombay Rockers’ Rock Tha Party on guitars? I just did. And it rocked :)

Just got back from an accoustic performance by this group of super talented musicians – Aamir Alvi [of LUMS fame], Jafri [ex Noori], Murtaza Jafar aka KV [session player for Noori] and Ali Alam [lead singer for Ganda Banda and a new addition this time]. Each summer, the gang [popularly known as Munchkins] gets together to give Karachittes a night of summer fun with cover song after cover song – usually they have Gumby on drums, who unfortunately couldn’t be there this time. With 180 people crammed in Dunkin Donuts, the band kicked off with Faith and ended on their ever popular cover of Nelly’s Hot In Here. Highlights of the performance included KV’s solo in Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, the energy in U2’s Sometimes You Cant Make It On Your Own, but the trump card of the evening truly was the interesting rendition of Rock Tha Party.

On a serious note, the performance served as a reminder that we need more civilized, organized concerts in Karachi! Is anyone listening?

    ali alam and jahanzeb and amir alvi and kv etc are old buddies of mine. dunkin donuts is an easy venue since another mutual friend run’s dunkin donuts and hosts them there. quite the jam it must have been. wish i was there.
