X-treme: Weddings speciality band

By Sanath Weerasuriya

‘X- treme added colour to my wedding by giving wonderful music. We were dressed in Kandyan attire and wanted to keep the whole theme in a traditional way. The band knew exactly how to entertain the guests and picked songs to suit the occasion. They maintained the sound balancing in a subtle way to make sure that no one was disturbed. Most of my guests spoke very highly of their performance’
This was one of bouquets of appreciation, which had been given to band X-teme by veteran actress, Sangeetha Weeraratne.

‘Being a professional, competent and experienced musical band requires commitment. As the name says it we are extremely passionate and committed in all what we do’ said Kosala Kalubovila, the leader of the band.

‘X - treme’ is a popular four member wedding band in the Sri Lankan music scene. ‘Our clientele is varied from silver screen stars to popular personalities to simple brides and common people’ said Kosala.

Being a popular wedding band, X-treme, has been performing at various functions since 1996 and have played more than 2000 shows in various areas of the country. ‘We have provided entertaining music for over 2000 wedding ceremonies and other similar events around the country and that includes many star studded weddings. We have considerable experience during the last 15 years’ he added

‘X-treme’ comprises Kosala Kalubovila (keyboard and vocal and band’s leader), Nilanga Perera (guitar), Nishantha Wijesingha (lead vocalists) and Thuishari Gunaratne on vocals. ‘Thushari Gunaratna is our latest female vocalist and is a talented singer. She had been a singer with a couple of Sri Lankan bands performing in foreign countries’ Kosala said. ‘If you plan to get married in the near future, you may be busy in organizing various details of your wedding like, your attire, decorations, photographers etc. Likewise there is a very important part of the wedding that should not be overlooked.

The choice of music. This will set the mood and expression on your special day. Although its influence may seem subtle, it will colour the atmosphere of your event’ Kosala explained their motto in music scene.
