Promoting young talent and providing them the right platform has always been a key mission of Gopi Sundar. A global stage for talent to showcase their abilities, to grow in confidence and to mature into professional singers has always been difficult to find. It was a long standing dream to start a band himself and to help young amazing talent that finally took shape in the year 2016. ‘Band Big G’ was launched in 2016 at Al Nasr Leisureland, Dubai. The band is a live performance band where there is no electronic music or interference but pure music with a modern touch. The band has a revolving quota of vocalists and instrumentalists with Gopi Sundar as the lead permanent member. The types of songs are decided based on the event genre and the audience.
The opening gig in Dubai was in front of a 3000 strong capacity crowd. The band played a fusion of 25 popular songs uninterrupted which included his own songs as well as those of greats like Johnson Master, Baburaj, A.R. Rahman. Young singing sensations such as Afsal, Najim Arshad, Haricharan, Divya S. Menon and Mohammed Maqbool Mansoor (Mukkathe Penne-fame), newcomer Sruthi Lekshmi and so on were part of the band’s premiere show. The show and the band were an instant hit and the band closed around 13 event commitments after the debut show.
Band Big G is available for full stage performances as a 12 member group as well as for budget friendly events as a 6 member group. The band easily caters to the stage show requirements in any budget – small or big.
