A band that plays together, stays together! This quote definitely fits Thermal And A Quarter's (TAAQ) band biography well. Fifteen long years and still going strong as a band, TAAQ has always managed to bring a smile on our faces. The three piece band featuring Bruce Lee Mani (vocals and guitar), Rajeev Rajagopal (drums) and Prakash KN (bass), will be in the city to share a whole new set of lyrics and melody with their fans.

An inspiration for many aspiring bands in Bangalore city, Mani, who has been with the band since its inception, still believes that they have a long way to go.
And have they tried to change or adapt to the trends in the music scene with time? "We prefer establishing trends rather than following them. We are known as a Bangalore Rock band, not because we are from the city but people relate our sound with the name. We have been artistes with jobs, but its only recently that we have turned full-time musicians. Hence, we have a long way to go," says Mani.
Interestingly, their live gigs have always been fun to look at. Brilliant music with some cool stage presence alongwith a lot of improvisation and experimentation makes their gigs memorable.
Mani shares that it's the audience and their reaction that encourages them to give their very best.
TAAQ always believes in bringing new material with a difference to every gig they perform. And this time too, they plan to introduce certain surprise elements.
On November 5, 9 pm onwards
At High Spirits, Koregaon Park.
