Live Banned is purely about entertainment. A satire band that has its roots in rock but presents parodies of popular English, Hindi, Tamil and Cannada tunes with finesse and humour!
The bands originals and medleys are popular for their humour that is sometimes intelligent and at other times atrocious.
Front man, Amrit Rao is an accomplished vocalist, trained in Carnatic music and versatile with languages. His stage presence is quirky and strong. The performances are bold, flamboyant and energetic, influenced by South Indian music, Bollywood, Disco, Pop, Rock and Metal. The band satirizes, restructures and twists popular music across genres and languages that appeals to everyone, from the man on the street to an audience from the corporate world.
What started off as a mash-up/parody band evolved into one that gives equal importance to original material. Live Banneds first single and music video The Auto Tune was released in April 2012 and has received rave reviews making it one of the most popular videos by an Indian band that year in the country.
Within a year of the band going live, it has emerged as one of the most popular and entertaining acts in the country, striking a chord with the young and the old alike.
