Founded in 2015, the club introduced this subtle genre of music in the college which had been missing, unlike other Institutes. As part of the Western Music Club, the campus’ most musically talented residents come under one roof to cover everything from Pink Floyd to Coldplay and Metallica to Linkin Park. It facilitates regular practice sessions throughout the year for several competitions like Maruti Suzuki’s Colors of youth, Indian Idol and cultural fests of various colleges. The competitive academic environment and co-curricular activities on campus keep the students on their toes. But everyone needs some time off to relax and recharge. Frequent jamming sessions help the members develop a taste in different flavors of music and enhance their skills on the instrument. Members of the club play various musical instruments such as guitar, drums, Cajon box, ukulele, bass guitar, and synthesizer.
