YES! The winners of the Converse Original Band Hunt 2012 is Ganesh Talkies.
The event, held at Bandra Fort, Mumbai, on the 16th of Dec 2012 night, and judged by prominent names like Parikrama, Luke Kenny and Monica Sharma Dogra , the event saw bands entering the contest from all over the country, with the final 4 winners being chosen from the 4 zones and coming together for a grand evening of performance and cheering at the Bandra Fort.
As Ganesh Talkies came up on the stage, it was evident from their costume what their theme was - DISCO! Dressed in blingy dazzlers of gold and silver, the band, the only one that had a female in it by the way, gyrated and danced and sang and rocked to some interesting beats and tunes and lyrics, ensuring the audience had a gala time!
The first track 'Item Song' proved to be a massive hit and also won the title for the Best Lyrics. The band's guitarist, Ronodeep Bose, won the title of Best Guitarist.
Ganesh Talkies walked away as the winners of the country-wide hunt for The Original Band and very soon, fans will get a chance to sample their music across various Converse outlets as part of a compilation album that Converse has promised as part of the winning booty, apart from a 50k winning cheque!
Cheers girl and guys!!!!!
