FORWARD plays LIVE @ Inorbit Mall - 19th Feb.

"Forward" LIVE in the Inorbit Mall!

Friday, Feb 19th at 7 pm onwards

Join us for a great evening of experimental covers, jazz, pop and original music by a forward thinking group unchained by common convention or stylistic boundaries, all while still being accessible and fun to listen to! 

A unique group of exceptional talent, you may have heard Scott’s original sounding keyboard work on the blockbuster film Ocean’s Eleven. Naina’s funky bass and expressive vocals will transport you.. and Gino’s groovy, propulsive drumming will make you move! Which is something he's been doing since he was 9 years old playing with his father Louiz’s group, Sangam.  A rare opportunity and not to be missed!

All are welcome. Free entry!
