  India’s biggest hard rock band Girish and the Chronicles, GATC, is all set to perform in Goa on Sunday, March 17 at Gawin’s restaurant and pub, Verna, thanks to Back to Rock (Born To Rock), a group of like-minded people who love classic rock music. GATC, with more than a thousand shows across the globe, came into being in Sikkim in 2009 and are based out of Bangalore. The band has many singles to their name and one album ‘Back on Earth’ released in 2014. “We are trying to get back the music of the 70’s & 80’s that we have somehow lost ..,” says Girish. GATC was the first Indian band to represent India in the Sun Cane Skale International Music Awards Festival, Montenegro, Europe in 2010 winning a silver trophy for their hit single ‘Yesteryears’. The band has shared stage and opened for many international bands like Poets of the Fall, Steve Vai, and others. Their front man Girish Pradhan, who arguably is the best Indian vocalist in this genre, has acclaimed appraisals from many international radio stations. GATC has been a part of most Indian music festivals like October Fest, MAD Festival, NH7 Weekender, Bangalore Open Air, The Mighty Rock Union, India Bike Week, Harley Rock Riders and many more. And playing hosts to GATC in Goa is B2R, a non-profit, co-volunteered, honorary group striving hard to keep this genre of rock music from 60’s, 70’s and 80’s alive by holding gigs, thus promoting musicians to perform live and also to give an audience to the performers. “We try our best to expose our youth to this genre of Rock Music. The gig is open for all” say Team B2R.
