‘STILL CRAZY’ ABOUT ROCK: EUROPEAN ROCK BAND IN GOA

‘STILL CRAZY’ ABOUT ROCK: EUROPEAN ROCK BAND IN GOA

European Deep Purple tribute band, Still Crazy, is in Goa, and set to appear at major rock shows in Benaulim and Velsao Beach over the weekend. Café tunes in

Goan lovers of rock have a treat in store for them this weekend! European Deep Purple tribute band Still Crazy is in town and will be performing at the Classic Rock concert at Farm House, Benaulim on Friday, May 4, 2018, followed by a second big appearance at Extra Bass Summer Beach Show 4.0 at Velsao Beach on Sunday, May 6.


Since the time this group of rock-loving childhood friends first got together in the ‘90s, Still Crazy, which tags itself as ‘Pure Rock Attitude and Adrenaline’, has gained a steady fan following in Europe with their covers of Deep Purple, the legendary English rock band. With vocals by Adrian Corlaciu, Marius Sararu and Mihai Marcoci on lead guitar, Rareş Nistor on bass, Radu Stănică on keyboard and Tinel Mureşan on the drums, the band has opened for a number of major rock concerts in Romania and has played gigs at high-profile parties and clubs in Germany and Bulgaria.

Besides Deep Purple covers, the band also covers the music of Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Billy Idol and more. “Of course we are aware that in 2018, the cover bands are playing Coldplay, Kings of Leon or Green Day, but for us, rock is only heavy metal!” says the band. “We would prefer to give up music than to play something that does not represent us. So when people stop coming to clubs or pubs for heavy rock concerts, because the distortion of the guitar is too loud or the drums are too noisy, we will stop being a rock band. Until then, we are and always will be Still Crazy!”

The concert at Farm House, Benaulim, will also feature popular Goan rock band Bad Blood in their first gig appearance since the recent release of their debut original album ‘Tomorrow’s Yesterday’. Led by guitarist Nixon Soares, with vocalist Balsio Pinto, drummer Aurvile Rodrigues, bassist Anthony Fernz, keyboardist Frazer Pacheco, and Prathamesh Chari on the tabla, the band will perform hits from their new album, including ‘Should I?’, ‘Angel’, ‘Fight your Fears’, and ‘Tomorrow’s Yesterday’, the music video of which was aired on VH1, 9XO, and Pepsi MTV Indies, making them the first Goan rock band to make it to national TV.

The concert on May 4 is set to kick off at 7:30 pm, for an exciting night of live rock music
