Benny Dayal makes Bangalore crowds go 'Bang Bang'!

Post by -*Fenil*- on 2014-10-18, 17:16

Bollywood songs rule the heart of most Indian
music lovers! A case in point was when singer
Benny Dayal was bombarded with requests to belt
out his desi numbers over English tunes at the
opening day of the 10th edition of Kingfisher
Premium - The Great Indian Octoberfest (TGIOF)
But Benny, who found the requests strange, had
to satiate the requests of the audience -- and it
was a sight to behold!
The singer was at the fest to perform with his
band FunktuaTion, at the inaugral day of the
three-day festival Friday at E-Zone club here.
The event started with an "average turnout of
crowd" because of the venue, which is a little
away from the main city compared to last season
when it happened at a central spot, but it
gradually picked up when Benny came to perform
live in front of the city's music aficionados.
However, what surprised the singer was when one
of the audience members, requested him to start
with Bollywood tracks.
Pat said Benny: "You are standing at a music
festival, not at a Bollywood concert."
Also, given that most of Bangalore's young crowd
is abreast with western music, including
electronica, funk, rock and hip-hop, a request for
Bollywood track was unexpected.
But Benny, who is considered a perfect livewire at
open-air gigs as well as inside a compact studio,
was courteous enough not to disappoint the
Bollywood music fanatics.
After performing some of his thundering English
tracks, he started playing one of his recent hit
title tracks from Hrithik Roshan-starrer film " Bang
Bang ". That truly set the momentum going.
The crowd went into a frenzy with the foot-
tapping number and started screaming with
excitement with beer cans in their hand.
The performance went ahead with another of his
Bollywood number -- the chartbuster " Badtameez
dil" from the hit Bollywood movie " Yeh Jawaani
Hai Deewani". He also later sang some soulful
tracks, including "Dil se re" from Shah Rukh
Khan 's " Dil Se..." and "Albela sajan aayo re" from
the film " Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam".
The experience was as memorable for Benny as
much as for the crowd.
"It is great to perform in such festivals and
nothing can beat the adrenaline rush that comes
with these acts. The audience of Bangalore never
disappoints me," the singer said after the
The crowd had a lot of say after his performance
got over.
"He is too good and we want more from him. We
love all his tracks and I think he is someone who
can make anyone laugh and cry at the same time
with his soulful voice whenever he performs," said
a young fan, who came all the way from
Hyderabad to be part of ongoing music gala.
The other bands and singers who performed on
the opening day were Mad Orange Fireworks, Grey
Shack, Peepal Tree, Ministry of Blues and not to
forget the Apache Indian , who is known for his
distinctive style of fusing Asian, West Indian and
English cultural elements together in his music
and performances.
