The RCB Bar & Cafe in Bengaluru is set to join in the global celebration of International Blues Music Day on August 6th this year with a team of talented local blues musicians who will come together to celebrate this genre music that is born in the United States but soon became a symbol of camaraderie beyond international borders.
International Blues Music Day has been celebrated on the first Saturday in August every year since 2013.
Headliners include Dr. Prakash Sontakke, a slide guitarist who won a Grammy for Ricky Kej’s debut album and performed around the world and at NAMM; Chronic Blues Circus, which has been performing continuously since 1991 and is the oldest blues band in town; Herbert Paul, who is known for his “Hendrix” style and covers many of the iconic musician’s songs; Natasha Carroll & Oran, where Natasha is a singer-songwriter and ukulele player who finds inspiration in classic rock and alternative folk music, to name a few.
The celebration is part of RCB Bar & Café’s effort to revive the city’s live music scene, which had slowed for some time due to pandemic restrictions. Home to one of the most eclectic live music scenes in the country, Bangalore was once known for offering plenty of entertainment options for music lovers – from acoustic jam sessions to rock and roll parties.
With a deep understanding of what Bangalorians are looking for, RCB Bar and Café has curated a unique fusion of culinary, mixological and cultural experiences, to provide music lovers with memorable live experiences in the heart of the city. . The Midweek Buzz held every Wednesday includes live performances by local, national or international musicians and artists. For Weekend Buzz held every Friday and Saturday, they host live DJ nights to amp up the boosted experience with electronic music. And the Sunday Weekend Mix is an evening dedicated to enjoying a mix of live band performances or DJ nights, to help guests unwind, relax and prepare for the week ahead.
