The Mumbai-based band was formed as a result of acoustic jams at various house parties with Teemeer and his circle of friends jamming together songs encompassing a wide genre of rock music using only acoustic guitars. That's when friends suggested taking it more seriously and try doing more professional performances with the jamming theme intact. So here’s the end product, Cirkles, an acoustic experimental rock band which covers music from a whole variety of sub-genres of rock and tries to put its own personal/acoustic touch to the songs.
The idea was also to bring heavy and thrash metal music to the masses and non-rock lovers and play music at a very basic/acoustic level. The current band line-up started performing with its launch gig at the Furtados counter at the Palm Expo in June 2008. The talent of the band lies in how the band performs covers in their own unique style. Songs are as diverse as thrash classics (Memory Remains by Metallica and Tornado of Souls by Megadeth) to classic pop covers (Wicked Game by Chris Isaak and Ordinary World by Duran Duran). The band has since performed and headlined various shows in Government Law College (GLC), Palm Expo May 2008 and at Club D'ultimate August 2008 and most recently in most of the annual events at Mithibai College and NM college with performances at the Jasoda Rang Mandir and rocking students at the KEM medical college and VJTI, Matunga in Dec-Jan’10 with a mix of English and hindi/bollywood rock music. All the shows ran to packed houses with patrons choosing to join in the fun and singing along with the band throughout the set. Cirkles always has an active crowd participation.
They are regulars at NOT JUST JAZZ BY THE BAY, Firangipani(Andheri-w), Hard rock café and Gadda-da-vida in Hotel Novotel, Juhu, Mumbai. Influences for the band as a whole range from Metallica, Megadeth, Slipknot, Pantera to Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Sting, The Police, The Doors, Hindi Rock, Bollywood, etc.
