First things first, its not the vegetable. After pondering over some of the most idiosyncratic names ever known to mankind, the band settled on one of them anyway. That said, The Beat Route is a result of some clever thinking and quirky wordplay. The plan was never to be too profound with the name, but these things happen. Formed in November 2010, The Beat Route is a five member band based in Mumbai with all its members spread across the gigantic city.
The band is the brainchild of Keyboard player Eeshan Tripathi and Drummer Gopal Dutta. Having taken a break from their regional rock band Arth, the extremely talented but restless duo decided to go ‘Firangi’. The route to Beat Route wasn’t to be easy.
The Indian summer made them sweat over finding capable band members to play along with. Two guitar players, a bass guitarist and a few wasted jam sessions later; they finally found the permanent members to be. Guitarist Vignesh Iyer, Bass player Vibhas Patil and Vocalist Gregory Sarma. Having now settled upon a permanent line up, they embark upon the route that lay ahead.
