Starting out, the idea of a fusion band was the last thing on our minds. After we did all the local gigs with mostly Bollywood hits, we realised the only way for us to evolve as a band was to create a new sound. The Band is essentially a fusion of Indian Pop & Western sounds. Each member brings a unique musical aesthetic to the band and over the years we've grown comfortable jumping genres and mashing up cultural influences.
Kaykay & Co. have a glamorous outlook and a ‘witty’ entertaining presence and have performed for various Dinner & dances, Charity events, Mehfils, Sangeet nights, Civil weddings, Receptions, Engagement parties, Baby showers, Birthday parties & anniversaries & wakes.
