Eastern Fare's Joyous Weekend

(From MeriNews)

Eastern Fare Music Foundation, a premier music club in Bangalore had an interesting weekend, to say. To begin with, the band Eastern Fare promoted by this foundation delivered a fabulous performance last Friday (October 1), night at one of Bangalore's hot spots, Olio - the Lounge Mix. Accompanied by fine dining and drinks, the band covered some classic rock numbers with their usual panache. Siddharth Tanti, who has now become a familiar face in the rock and roll scene of the city, rendered vocals to songs like Light My Fire by The Doors, Time by Pink Floyd, All Along The Watchtower by Jimmy Hendrix, Proud Mary by CCR, Blowing In The Wind by Bob Dylan, Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd etc. Jim Ankan, founder of Eastern Fare truly rocked the lead guitar with some stupendous solos; while Anand PM on the keys and bass and Suchin and Girish on the rhythm kept the beats going on.

The very next day, on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2), which also happened to be one of the joy of giving days, the members of the foundation, explored their philanthropic side. They visited one of the senior citizens home ‘Anandashram’ in Bannerghatta, and spent time with the residents there. The senior residents in-turn welcomed them with a lot of enthusiasm. Anandashram is a senior citizens home located at Bannerghatta which houses 22 senior residents and many destitute children. The society has been active since 1930s and survives solely on donations in cash and kinds; but, the most important gift that its residents require there is the gift of time and companionship. Eastern Fare would shortly be organising non-profit music events for societies like Anandashram and many others.
