THE BANDRA REPORT with TONE WOLF at the Pike Room



THE BANDRA REPORT


The Bandra Report is a Jam Rock band out of Detroit with a heavy Jazz, Blues, and Funk influence. The group has maintained a very unique sound right from the start. This is all due to the extremely diverse interests of each of the members. Formed by chance and little guidance, the group has progressively grown into a great ensemble with a sound that each member has grown to love.

The band originally started with Ahmed Salem on the electric guitar, Brandon Abraham on the drums, and Rohan Shetty on the bass guitar. “Individually, we had been writing music for a long time, but we were never able to successfully put it together. We never made anything satisfying enough until the creative process was started together,” said Shetty. “Breezin’ was our first track that Brandon and I had been working on since January of 2010 before we had joined with Ahmed. Up until now it still remains as one our favorites as it sort of reminds us where we came from.”

With the addition of Salem, Eastbound (former name) was formed. Salem came from a heavy blues background. The trio now had influences from every genre ranging from Funk to Experimental Rock. After a couple months of work, they were able to put together three originals, yet still lacking the sound they were yearning for. Then along came Tommy Issac who joined as an electric guitarist. "Tommy brings a lot of versatility to the group and his high music IQ has helped the writing process a lot," said Abraham. With the help of Tommy Highway 1 was completed. “We finally felt that musically we were complete, but vocally we were not satisfied," according to the band. This is where Tommy’s brother Jay Issac joined as the lead singer. "Jay has taken all of our music and brought it to a whole new level,” said Shetty. The group finally feels like they have achieved their ideal sound.

Currently finalizing their EP, the band has really struggled to label their genre and has principally strayed away from labeling themselves. The Bandra Report has a reputation for playing remarkable shows and will be releasing their EP Relentless at the Pike Room.
