Overhung is Sujit Kumar, Howard Pereira, Kris Venkatachalam and Sheldon Dixon.
While all the 4 musicians have been playing with various established bands over the years, it was just natural that their paths crossed and one fine day they decided to Jam. All it took was that One jam and they already had a composition ready, and now many more in the pipeline. Having already hit the studios a couple of Jams later, the foursome decided to come out and play live.
The wide array of musicial influences that exist within the band is seen live onstage with their vast repertoire that cover Alternative Rock, Funk, Grunge and Blues.
The band, in 7 months of inception, have played Venues like Hard Rock Cafe ,B69, The Taj and a few Huge Corporate gigs and also 'Rush of Blood', Palm Expo, and Ctl+ALT+Del festivals, playing the same brand of music. They also have an hour long set of Original compositions that they play live besides covering come of their favourite Indian bands.
They also enjoy covering popular bands like Deep Purple, Led Zep, The Beatles and a host of other favorites!
