hellos, hiiis and all the pleasantries that go with it..
if u havent been to opus on a sunday night over the last 3 months then this mail is not for you. couple of things have been bothering me and i thought i needed to address it. In my wildest fantasy (and believe me, some of them are really really over the top) i would never imagine a regular 500 people every sunday. woww!! thanks!! i have a sneaky feeling that im doing something right here.
but its brought its share of 'its not what sunday nights used to be'... 'it takes 7 mins to get to the loo from where i was standing'... 'why do i have to book a week before if i need a table'.... 'i had to @#$^ park next to the palace ground entrance'...
but most worrying of all is the fact that the opus billings on a sunday nite just doesnt justify the numbers and the mayhem that comes with it. As a comparison on a saturday nite with 150 people we do just as much. the reasons are many and I've been really getting ulcers trying to fix this. So this sunday its gonna be entry 100 + cover 300 for the moment (sorry.. but thats the cost of one and a half drinks)
sighhh... a man's gotta do what a mans gotta do!!
im totally welcome to any other ideas anyone else can come up with. post a comment at http://opusbangalore.blogspot.com/
now onto something much more exciting!!
wednesday we kick off the search for KroaKING.. i'm keeping it really simple .. every wednesday we pick 3 people out of the entire lot that sings, to get into the final stages .. which means if u are not picked on a particular wednesday u have the opportunity to have a go next week and the week after next ... i guess u get my drift .. this will be over 8 (lets give the octopus its due) weeks.. every week an updated list will be sent to all and hosted on the site.
we are still working on prizes and sponsors and record deals and judges .. watch this space for updates.
when we reach 24 people we'll have a semifinal to pick 12 .. and then a final wherein one would be crowned Opus KroaKING... (ok .. i know, i know .. i'm being sexist... but i am like this wonly)
once again its incredible to see the kind of talent and the energy that wednesdays and especially sundays bring. thank u all so so so very much.
