The Saturday Night Blues Band featuring Ehsaan Noorani - July 23rd, 2011 @ SPE
At 10.20pm, Jayanta Dasgupta of The Saturday Night Blues Band (SNB for short) took the stage and introduced Jasbeer Singh, head honcho of Fender guitars in India. Shaukat Ali (Chuku) was honored as an endorsee of Fender guitars, after which the band, along with the man who the crowd had come to see - Ehsaan Noorani of SEL fame - took the stage.
What followed was an evening of enthralling music, where musicianship and the sheer energy of the band members was matched in no small measure by the cheering of the crowd! To make it a night to remember, Chiro (Chiradeep Lahiri), who was in Kolkata on vacation, was invited on stage to jam with the band. And later, Anita and Tanya joined Arunima on stage to create some more magic!
All in all, it was one of the city's best gigs in quite some time, and it left the crowd screaming for more when the band decided to end the show at 2.15 am!
Here are some pics from the show. Enjoy!
