Know the Band:
GENIE AND THE BEANIE:
Adding some wholesome spice and masala to the hits of the yesteryears, Genie and the Beanie just won’t stop there. With soaring baritone vibrato, great hooks and funky rhythms coupled in with some mash-up surprises, the gang lets you in on the magic that’s brewing. You’d definitely wish for some more!
We are an eclectic rock/pop band who does renditions of English/western songs that have managed to stay evergreen in a very fast-paced ‘billboard top 40’ world. We also perform songs that are homage to our South Indian heritage [i.e primarily Tamil. We have been known to dabble with the occasional Kannada or Malayalam song as well.]
Genie and the Beanie comprises of Prujeeth Joshua on vocals, Eric Gerald on guitars, Lionel Jude on keyboard and synthesiser, and Benji Kirupakaran on the drums and percussion. We switch between acoustic sets [box guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and cajun + cymbals] and a full set [with acoustic guitar, bass, electric guitar, keyboard and drumset] depending on the gig we are playing.
