Blend No.3220 was formed around mid 2011 to make some noise. What started out as inebriated banter accompanied by unplugged instruments, was soon converted into an electric set up with a raw amplified sound reminiscent of the 60s. Essentially the band performs original music, loosely based around very early street blues… Yet the catch here is that most of their music is composed, not before, but during their live performances! With randomly changing set-lists, the band simply loves to entertain people by pumping the energy levels through the roof with provocative lyrics and wailing instrumentals backed by a super tight rhythm section. A no-nonsense performance oriented band that keeps things real dirty and real cold… And most importantly always keeps one guessing… What Next?
Arnob Choudhuri (Vocals, Guitar, Harp, Piano): A seasoned performer who is known for his spontaneity, Arnob believes in reaching out to people and has been doing so for over a decade. As a musician Arnob loves pushing himself over boundaries and reinventing his performances, every single time. A multi instrumentalist and the main songwriter of the band, he believes in writing and performing music that connects people together.
Sumair Zubairy (Skins): Sumair has been playing for a number of years now. He has shared the stage with different artists from all over the country. Grooving to music of different styles is what Sumair aims at. Influenced by all kinds of genres and is very open to experimental music.
Keshav Iyengar (Bass): Keshav is among the few bassists who can be melodious and groovy at the same time. A student of Economics by day, he is also a part of other established bands across various genres in addition to being a sought after sessions musician. Being under the spotlight from an early age as a participant of a well known reality show, he adds a parallel dimension to the sound of the band.
Pratyush Pillai (Guitar): His influences range from the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Steve Vai to the brutal sounds of Dream Theatre’s Petrucci and Pantera’s Dimebag! The process of creating music and then performing it in front of an audience, for him, is a spiritually elevating experience…and his motto in life is…if it’s not straight from the heart…it’s not worth it!
