15th December 2011 - Vernon Noronha
Genre – Soul/Pop/Folk
His first foray into music came when he started singing at the age of 8. Later he began participating in intercollegiate events before finally picking up a guitar at the age of 18, a decision which he never looked back from. He is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include Andy Mckee, Adam Rafferty, John Mayer as amongst his guitar influences and Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz, Stevie Wonder, Michael Bubble as amongst his biggest vocal influences.

Members - Vernon Noronha (Lead Singer/Guitarist), Hitesh Kumar (Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist), Mikhail Carvalho (Lead Guitarist), Alex Varghese (Drummer) and Jaffery Sequeira (Bass Guitar).

16th December 2011 - Spud In The Box
Genre – Alternative
Pop Rock/Folk Rock

A fresh-on-the-scene band from Mumbai, 'Spud in the Box' is a folk-rock act founded by Ankit Dayal and Rohan Rajadhyaksha, around March 2011. The duo started small by playing early sets at Blue Frog, but soon saw the need to expand the sound; enter drummer Vivaan Kapoor and bassist Zubin Bathena. As far as sound goes, the band does not wish to be limited to any genre, freely experimenting with jazz, blues, pop, folk, rock, hip-hop, classical (Western and Indian); while covering artists from any and every field of music. Developing a unique sound is the law of the land as far as Spud in the Box is concerned.

Members - Rohan Rajadhyaksha (Vocals/Keyboard), Ankit Dayal (Vocals/Guitar), Vivaan Kapoor (Percussions) and Hartej Sawhney (Lead Guitar).
