Season 5 was a daylong event which stretched out over the day from 11.30 a.m. to 9.00 p.m. It was made of live performances by the group’s members interspersed with a high school level singing competition. Students of Cambridge School won the prizes.
All the members were awarded with certificates. School participants were given both prizes and certificates.
Addressing the gathering Chief Guest Sai Krishna Kudla appreciated the efforts of the group to popularize music. Sachita Nandagopal said the present day youth should learn to become addicted to their talents rather than to social media and social evils. Mahesh Nayak said voluntary groups like K2s bring out the best in the individual because of their selfless motive.
‘K2’s Rock On’ was founded by the husband wide duo Kamlesh H. Baldev and Komal who act as its group admins. Young Thushar Shivam, a student of Lourdes Central School, was the first member to join the club. He is a guitarist and singer. Today he is also the co-ordinator for the group.
The club started out in January this year as an informal practice group with Kamlesh Baldev generously lending his office space for singing practice. The key objective of the club is to give its members the chance to practice singing and promote the talents of music lovers. The club does not collect costs or charge any fees from the members. It presently has 39 members. The group meets regularly for practice and audition at Kamlesh’s showroom ‘Baldev’s Travel Point’ at Juhi’s Boutique, Saibeen Mall.
B’PLUS Group of Saloons, Mangalore and Suratkal was a well wisher for ‘K2’s Rock On Season 5.
