‘Alien Accent at Gatsby’s
Having captivated a capacity crowd at Gatsby’s in their first performance in two years, Alien Accent will be back for an ‘encore’ performance on Saturday, January 8.

Just three weeks ago, Suresh and DK together with talented new vocalist Dillain Joseph thrilled an appreciative audience in an intimate unplugged concert. Their repertoire featured songs from the ‘Rites of Passage’ album specially rearranged for the show.

The cover songs also highlighted the trio’s trademark creative arrangements and included songs by Sting, The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Crowded House and many more classic rock legends.

Alien Accent has made a name for themselves for their orginality. In 2001, they recorded their critically acclaimed ‘Rites of Passage’ album in Los Angeles working with studio musicians of international standard.

“Over the years, we’ve worked with a variety of musicians,” said Suresh, a founder member and songwriter for the band. “This way we inject more creativity into our music.”

“Working with Dillain has been very enjoyable,” said DK. “She’s got a remarkable voice and adds a fascinating dimension to our usually all-male harmonies.”

The band will also feature the multi-talented Sureka on Flutes and Violin, Lelum Ratnayake on Percussion, Nadeeka Jayawardena on Bass and Delai Joseph on backing vocals.

The warm sound of acoustic guitars played by Suresh and DK provides that refreshing “unplugged” vibe that sets the mood for a magical evening. And when the voices kick on you know that you are about to witness a truly rare performance. If you couldn’t make it for the first one.
