NIT Trichy's Festember Rock Night Is A Tribute To Guns 'n' Roses

Posted at September 24th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Guns ‘n’ Hoses is an all-lady cover band for the extremely popular American Band Guns ‘n’ Roses. It comprises of nationally touring musicians namely Erin Marsz, Charlene Kaye, Julia Adamy, Emmy Wildwood and Gina Ilasi. This band shall be putting up a performance on the Rock Night of Festember, which falls on the 24th of September, 2016. This is the first time that an international band is coming down to Trichy, and there could certainly be no better occasion than that of Festember.

Based in New York, Guns ‘n’ Hoses takes up the genre of Metal Rock and has its primary interests on short skirts, brown liquor, dancing on tables and true love. Named “Best Tribute Band 2014” by the Village Voice, GNH, this band melts faces and breaks hearts in every show with their take on the hits and deep cuts. With the tagline “Welcome to the Vajungle”, this band has consistently promised to turn every show into a veritable ‘80’s hair metal party.

The Hoses are not a tribute band that sound just like the original. They are not a collection of eye-candy, thrown together that can just about play instruments. They are not hipsters mocking the over-the- top silliness of the original. They are a talented band that really appreciates the original GNR tunes, and has fun with it. Any cover band would have simply played the hits. GNH dug into the riffs, from the funky bass of Mr. Brownstone, to the crying Les Paul of Sweet Child of Mine.

Having called Indian bands like SKRAT, Black Letters, Mushroom Lake, and Family Cheese, Festember had already set a benchmark to outdo this time around, and they didn’t disappoint. This has become one of the highlights of the annual international level cultural fest of NIT Trichy, and very highly looked forward to as a result of the aura of anticipation in and around the college.

Come down to GJCC, NIT Trichy on 24th September, 2016 at 9 PM to witness the first ever international rock band performance in Trichy. Don’t miss it!
