Rock band The Beatroute
Formed in November 2010, The Beatroute is a five member band based in Mumbai. The band is the brainchild of keyboard player Eeshan Tripathi and drummer Gopal Dutta. When the duo took a break from their regional Rock band Arth, they decided to go western. Over a scorching summer they shortlisted capable band members to play along with.
Two guitar players, a bass guitarist and a few jam sessions later; they finally zeroed in on their permanent members Vignesh Iyer (guitar), Biswajit Chakroborty (bass player) and Gregory Sarma (vocalist). While Gopal is currently on a hiatus due to family commitments, he has been replaced by Toobloo.
"We will be performing four of our original songs along with popular U2 songs. It is a musical tribute to the iconic band," said Vignesh Iyer, guitarist from the band.
Alongwith U2 soundtracks, the gig will also feature original music by The Beatroute. Irish Rock band U2 from Dublin was formed in 1976 and their early sounds were rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from several genres of popular music.
