A Band Of Boys – the 90s band of cuties – stole our hearts with their very first album release Yeh Bhi Woh Bhi in 2002. India’s first all-boy band not only topped the charts for weeks but also created a new image for pop in the country. Songs like Gori, She Drives Me Crazy and Ishq really got us grooving! They were so good that they were called the Backstreet Boys and the Boyzone of India!
The band originally constituted of five members, later only four of them stuck by.
In 2003, A Band Of Boys came up with their first movie Kiss Kis Ko, and though the movie did not do that well, their songs made everybody groove to the tunes yet again. Then came a long break.
In 2007, these 4 charming talents got together again and released their second album. In collaboration with another band named Nexus , they called themselves Xenabob , and once again stole our hearts with what they called IDM or intelligent dance music. It not only hit the chart busters but was also a hit all across FM channels.
The group did not have any more album releases. But then again, their talents went beyond music.
In 2014, ABOB hit the music scene back with their tongue-in-cheek, catchy song for the Ungli Campaign – urging people to vote for the general elections. The song’s lyrics took a satirical dig at the recent political faux-pas like connecting rape with eating chowmein, and the fun in riding on roads full of potholes.
But that was the last we heard of the four desi singing sensations!
The individual talents went in their own directions to conquer their passions. Wondering what they are up to now? Check it out.
