The most awaited and much anticipated Rock concert, “Reloaded” featuring STILL WATERS from Gangtok, was held here at Cafe Live & Loud, Gangtok on 21st April 2012. Produced and managed by THE ALPINE ATTITUDE, an event management company based in Sikkim, the concert was supposed to be an open air concert with venue as MG Marg, Gangtok but due to incessant rain and bad weather, the venue was changed.
Although STILL WATERS are one of the pioneers of Rock music in Sikkim, who have been performing in major Rock concerts all over India since 2001 and have also been specially featured in MTv Roots, the concert was all the more very important for the band as they were playing their very first gig in Sikkim with their new vocalist, Abhisek Lemo Gurung. Secondly, for the first ever time in Sikkim and probably in the entire north east region of India, the organizers were streaming the concert live on internet.
Around all the speculations mixed with sheer enthusiasms, the show started at 7:00 pm to a house packed audience. The doubts, if any, regarding the band’s music with the new vocalist were instantly cleared, when STILL WATERS took to the stage. Abhisek’s powerful vocals blended very well with the music of the band and they were sounding real tight with every song and every note being played. The band performed two of their originals, live a little and happy go lucky from their first album and there was encore both the times. The band covered songs from AC-DC, IRON MAIDEN, GUNS 'N' ROSES, PINK FLYOD, among others and the crowd was left only asking for more. The show being streamed live online was viewed from as far as Dubai, Nepal, Australia, Bhutan, etc. (quality videos will be uploaded to the official youtube channel of THE ALPINE ATTITUDE)
STILL WATERS is presently being managed by THE ALPINE ATTITUDE who plans for the open air concert on 20th May 2012 at MG Marg, Gangtok. It would be a great treat for all the Rock music lovers as the entry is "Free".
