Celebrating the theme Freedom, bands 'The Light Years Explode' and 'Arquebus' performed at Pune's Hard Rock Cafe on Thursday night as Harley-Davidson riders poured in from all over the country to join in the celebration
Rock music is perhaps as old as the expression of freedom itself and for anyone who is even remotely a Harley-Davidson fan, the combination of music and motorcycles are often perceived as being a single entity.
The start to season four of the American cult brand’s cult music property Harley Rock Riders attracted a sizeable crowd at Pune’s Hard Rock Café on Thursday as two independent Indian rock bands The Light Years Explode and Arquebus played their most popular compositions.
Pune may have come close to stamping its authority as the “rock mecca” of Maharashtra, but the musical performances that marked the start to yet another season of the Harley Rock Riders this year were far from inspiring.
Given the brand’s historic association with Rock & Roll and its legends, the evening was a bit of a let down with minimal engagement between the hurly-burly live rock music in session and the Harley riders gathered at the venue.
Commenting on the Harley Rock Riders season this year, Anoop Prakash, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India said “This year Harley Rock Riders IV embarks on its yearly journey from the ‘rock capital’ of Maharashtra- Pune, setting the benchmark for the other five cities where independent Indian bands will rock and sway the crowds over the next three months.”
The Harley-Davidson backed rock music festival will now travel to Kolkata, followed by Ahmedabad, Kochi, Delhi and finally to Mumbai for the grand finale on 12th October, 2013.
