Our high energy seven piece rock outfit has been together since June 2011. Our music style ranges from soft rock to hard rock. We are inspired by artists like Poets of the Fall, Metallica, SOAD, Creed, Three Days Grace, Seether, Guns n Roses, Infected Mushroom, Bullet For My Valentine, Iron Maiden, Breaking Benjamin, Crossfade, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Slash and Bucket Head.
We have had our gigs at SKICC Boulevard, Kashmir University, Lovely Professional University and numerous other gigs around the state and outside.
Hailing from "Paradise on Earth", NAAZ is a rock band which came into existence in January 2011. Starting off with a single jazz guitar, we first took a plunge on Bollywood but became apparent as a ROCK BAND. None of us envisaged of forming a band; just a gang of few friends at college with a guitar in hand and no knowledge regarding how to play! Watching music videos triggered our hidden talent and we decided to try our hand at it. NAWAB enrolled at FLEMINGO MUSIC INSTITUTE and EHRAAR was born with a high pitch voice. NAWAB on the guitar and EHRAAR on vocals, somehow it worked. ASRAR decided to guide the band through the way. We made our own compositions, figured out that people developed a liking for our songs and decided to record a track, but we were short of members.
"Where there is a will, there is a way.."
ARSHAAN, the man with magical fingers, joined us. He created some serious music on keys. NAWAB fathomed his hold upon lead rather than rhythm and so he was taken in as the lead guitarist. The rendezvous with an old friend UMAR followed, where we encountered his talent and were left stunned by his music. With the formation of the group, we came out with our debut song "Yaadein" featuring SAAQI BHAT(a mate). Following an encouraging response from the people, we made new compositions and even prepared some cover songs. Now functioning as a band, people came to know us better. A friend MUSA, decided to go on violin, he joines classes at FMI and played as the violinist in the band. But, we were running short of a drummer. It was then that IRFAN sir came to our aid and suggested us a drummer, he was none other than MUSA himself. Henceforth, he was accepted as a drummer rather than a violinist, to fulfill our basic need. Later DANISH enlisted as a bass guitarist. Now with 6 members, a manager and faith in ourselves, we, NAAZ, set out to prove our mettle.
