Online Sensation and Kerala's first super band, Thaikkudam Bridge, takes center stage at the Al Nasr
Leisureland, Dubai on 20th February in their first ever exclusive concert in the Middle East. The organizers, Housefull Events has promised a power packed exclusive show filled with the usual energy and quality of music that Thaikkudam Bridge has become a household name in Kerala and beyond.
Thaikkudam Bridge is a band composed of musicians who came together first for a show called 'Music Mojo' in the Malayalam channel Kappa TV. It was when cousins Govind Menon and Siddharth Menon got an opportunity to perform at this show that they brought together artist friends from Kerala and Mumbai to perform with them. From the oldest member of the band Peethambaran Menon (vocals and also Govind Menon's father) to the youngest Abin Thej (drums), they work together earnestly to produce music with the theme 'melody' in mind.
The songs they performed on the show instantly connected with Malayalis worldwide. They experiment with songs from Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi, and English and give these songs a unique 'T-bridge magic touch'. They have also composed two songs titled 'Fish Rock' and 'Shiva'.
When asked about how the band got its name, Govind Menon said, "We used to practice in an apartment near Thaikkudam Bridge which is why we gave it the name. Simple. It was Piyush Kapoor's idea to call the band with this special name. The music of the band got popularized majorly through social media networking sites and YouTube. Within one day, the official Facebook page of the band gained 1000 likes and in a short span of 4 months, the page crossed over 100,000 likes. The song titled 'Nostalgia', a medley of four Malayalam songs from late 1980s and early 1990s crossed 800,000 views on YouTube (as of February 1, 2014). The band first performed live in Model Engineering College, Kochi, Kerala and the rage extended off-screen. It has grown to become one of the most popular bands in Kerala."
Youngsters are found to hear the music of Thaikkudam Bridge in spite of it not being specifically classified under pop/rock/metal etc. The media is astounded to see the sudden growth of a Kerala-based music band (the first of its kind in the state).
Housefull Events is a professionally managed outfit, where fun is serious business. Housefull Events being the official GCC artist manager for Thaikkudam Bridge, has ensured that they will have a "HOUSEFULL SHOW" on the 20th of February in Dubai. The company (Housefull events) having exclusive rights for the band for GCC, is all set to rock GCC, namely OMAN, BAHRAIN and QATAR.
