When Chirodeep, Neel, Stuart and Taj got together back in 2003 to form a band one thing was just right – the vibe they shared. But there was one huge problem – their tastes in music was as varied as chalk and cheese. So what do they do? They start playing everything. Well, almost. Rock, Pop, Blues, Rock-n-Roll, Jazz – you name it, they play it. And for a band that spans so many genres, what better name than, well, Span.

So by the time Raja joined the band, Span was playing not just covers - well, they never did play the straight-out cover – they did their own take on all the great hits from different genres, and played something unique, and unmistakably Span. They also had, by then, started playing more and more of their own compositions.

Today, more than three years on, Span’s brand of music has evolved into a distinctive sound, with crowds clamouring as much for their versions of ever-popular tracks, as for their originals – be it I’ll Be Around, Try, Don’t You Worry or any other.

Between creating movie scores or music for theatre, and playing to packed crowds at stadium rock shows, clubs and pubs, Span performs at the Mecca of live music – Someplace Else, every Thursday.
