An Event To Immortalize 

 

The Music Club of Thames International College conducted a massive-scale event called “Thames Music Fest” on the 7th of July, 2023 at Purple Haze Rock Bar, Thamel. More than 1200+ people gathered together to witness performances by the extremely talented rockstars of Thames and of course, the main event, the performance of a lifetime by the multitalented Sabin Rai and The Pharaoh

The event started bright and early around 11:30 AM accompanied by the constant buzz of people entering the venue. The crowd was getting pumped up to watch the upcoming performances. The event was hosted by our ever-so-charismatic host Abhisha Shrestha. 

Once the crowd settled down, the performances were spearheaded by our dearest, amazingly talented “High Hopes” with Lazzu Shrestha as the melodious singer, brilliant Samrik Bade on the keyboard, and skillful Sokhin Singh on the guitar. They took the crowd by storm when they performed “Ranga”  by The Rockheads. Hundreds of voices came together to sing along with Lazzu’s hypnotic voice. One would think nothing could top the famous song, but just as Lazzu sang “When I feel cold”, contrary to the lyrics, the crowd was charged with enough energy to power an entire town for months.``Cold/Mess” by Prateek Kuhad, the awe amongst people was crystal clear. It was as if thousands of people gathered together to scream about their broken hearts in unison. Their passionate performance ended with, “Dancing on my own '' by Calum Scott and Tiësto. 

The second performer was our very own college idol, Anjan Ranabhat with the talented Samrik Bade on the keyboard, they managed to take the crowd into a trance with the mesmerizing “Until I found you” by Stephen Sanchez. Hook, line, sinker. Once they got the crowd going, they introduced bangers like, “Naganya Maya” by Sajjan Raj Vaidya, “Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles, and “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction. They had the crowd singing along to every lyric. Let's just say the dormant directioner in everyone’s body was awoken by Anjan and Samrik alright.
