What the funk just hit me?!?-
Jester, a five piece funk-rock ensemble that hails from Delhi University’s ever so rapidly growing KMC Music society.
Formed in 2008, this group of college-goers made rapid strides in the Indian live circuit with their awesome performances and bizarre brand of originals. They were declared Winners in both Zonals and regionals in Campus Rock Idols this year and managed to garner quite a reputation for alt-funk melodies.

Talking ‘bout my generation!-
“Today, the music scene in India is mostly about heavy distorted guitars and stuff like that. Since we don’t belong to that genre, we sometimes do not face a totally satisfied crowd after or while we play. However, to us it hardly matters. To us, it’s more about connecting to ourselves rather than connecting to an audience. If you like our music, that’s great. If not, we’re still happy.”

Commercialization- Boon or Bane?
“We are not against commercial sets as long as we’re allowed to throw in a few of our originals. In the end everybody needs money, not because they’re sell-outs but because in the real world, money is more than necessary for the sustenance of the band. Hence, to us, commercial sets make lot of sense as collective business models.”
