AlterEgoz was formed in the year 2001 although the members of the band have been playing since the mid 90s. AlterEgoz’s influences are the Beatles, Jethrotull, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Deep Purple, Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Yes, The Who, Police,....... and many more great bands and individuals. It’s not possible to name all of them. Originally all the 6 compositions have been made to English Lyrics. Due to a possibility of a few of them threatened to be used for films, we have made them bi-lingual. Songs like Conscious – Shakti, Belly – Naya Naseeb are in English as well as Hindi. All our OCs are immensely appreciated by our audiences and Shakti and Naya Naseeb are popular due to their strong lyrical content – Shakti being on Women and Naya Naseeb on Child Labour.
While they have performed at many places, our most memorable performances have been at the Passport pub and The Under Deck at the Taj as we have done many a theme events here – like the Pink and Black show( Floyd and Sabbath), Jail House Rock, Glam Rock era etc.
Big events have been the ones at the Marriott for New Year’s eve in 2008 and 2009, Infosys campus event, Ascendas Corporate event, Airtel Live in 2007 where they played along with some big names like Soul Mate, Skinny Alley, Mrigya, Parikrama etc.
The band has a very cool attitude. AlterEgoz is not a stiff band though you cannot expect any pyrotechnics or glamorous stage acts. They thoroughly enjoy ourselves on the stage and that carries across to the audiences.
