Musical duo rocks a gig at IIT Dhanbad despite heavy downpour; gig goes on till wee hours
Celebrated composer-singer duo Meet Bros, comprising Manmeet Singh and Harmeet Singh, were to perform at a gig in IIT Dhanbad recently. While around 8,000 students had gathered to groove with the Chitiya Kalaiya, High Heels and Baby Doll hitmakers, the performers weren’t sure if they would hit the stage, thanks to the sudden downpour and thunder.
A source from the venue says, “But the students, who came for the concert at Srijan (IIT Dhanbad’s cultural festival) were so optimistic. They didn’t leave the venue despite the rain. Finally, the duo hit the stage aroundÂ 1 amÂ when the rain stopped. The gig went on tillÂ 3 am.Â The attendees had a blast. They danced non-stop.”
When contacted, the duo said, â€œIt became possible only because of the students. We are overwhelmed by their love and respect for us. We were blown away by their enthusiasm. We just wanted to give our love back to them through our performance.”
Meet Bros are set to launch a new music channel, which aims to give opportunities to raw talent. Talking about it, Harmeet says, â€œOur goal for this channel is to nurture creativity and support unrecognised artistes. We want to bring them to the fore.â€
