ASB KESSHET 2019 – Battle of Bands

Asian School of Business recently held its annual inter-college cultural fest known as ‘KESSHET’ on Thursday, 17th January 2019 at its campus in Noida. KESSHET 2019 was celebrated with great pomp and enthusiasm, and in complete Bollywood style. One of the attractive event activity at this festive celebration was the “Battle of Bands” competition.

The “Battle of Bands” competition was for those Band players who dreamt of being a part of a Big Band, playing their heart out in front of a loud, reveling audience!  “KESSHET 2019” provided just the right chance to these bands to play in front of more than 1000 people for the evening!

The number of bands allowed per college was limited to one. The time limit for performing was 20 minutes (including set-up time). The bands were required to carry their own musical instruments. The bands were pre-assigned performance slots randomly, and the same was intimated to the participants a couple of days earlier. Bands were expected to adhere to the schedule; any exchange of slots was allowed only on mutual agreement. And, it was stipulated that if a band missed its slot, they will not be guaranteed the opportunity to perform.

The “Battle of Bands” had the following participant teams:

  1. Bhagwati Institute of Technology & Science
  2. Faculty of Music, DU.
  3. Ramanujan College of Technology
  4. Amity University
  5. Asian School of Media Studies (ASMS)
  6. PGDAV College
  7. ABESIT College

The participant teams were judged on the following four parameters:

  1. Music
  2. Stage Presence & Crowd Interaction
  3. Crowd Applause
  4. Originality

The event was judged by experienced external judge, Mr. Nitin Shukla. The first position was secured by ABESIT College. The judge was full of praises for the great effort done by participants within a short period of time.
