Kanan Gill
Kanan Gill is the tip of an iceberg, where the rest of the iceberg is a confused Punjabi under water. He is a writer, musician, stand up comedian, software engineer, fitness enthusiast and slightly creepy man. He exploded onto the stand up comedy scene by winning the Punch Line Bangalore competition, going straight on to win the open mic at The Comedy Store in Bombay and is consequently stumbling onto big stages all over the place armed with his weird take on life and his weirder sense of humour. You can catch him doing his thing and keeping audiences in splits or hiding in trees, writing stories.

Jaideep Singh Juneja
Jaideep Singh Juneja aka JD is the funniest sardar since Manmohan Singh. His parents wanted him to be an astronaut when he grew up so that he can go to outer space and find his real parents. Sadly he never grew up!

Dhruv Deshpande
Hot, sexy, entertainer, liar - Dhruv Deshpande introduces himself as just another guy who thinks he's funny.

Vipul Goyal is an Electrical Engineering graduate from IIT Bombay. Fresh out of college, he worked as a retail analyst in Adventity Inc. for 6 months, but soon realised that his heart was in H.R. where HR stands for HUMOUR Resources. He mixed Laughs and Entrepreneurship and founded the most Unique HR firm "Humorously Yours" which has since pioneered Stand Up Comedy and Entertainment Shows. Given his originality and clean witty content, within a very short span of time he has entertained audiences at all the major public platforms ranging from college festivals to their alumni meets to corporate summits. As he humorously puts it, he has the distinction of being the only stand up comic in India who performs in 4 different languages, English, Hindi, Java and C++.

Atul Khatri
Atul Khatri is a 40+ guy, we're talking about his age not IQ. A Mumbai based businessman who got up late in life and decided to do stand-up comedy so that he could tick it off his own personal bucket list. An Indian Computer Engineer and a British management scholar who always orders soup one by two even when he is eating alone. He is from a decent double income, two kids and strictly no sex Sindhi family. In his spare time he loves to dig his nose for gold hoping that one day a solitaire will emerge which he can eventually gift it to his wife. 

Nick Pillow
Yes you read that name correctly. Nick hails from a small inconsequential island off the south coast of England, and has been working in Mumbai since last year as a theatre teacher in an international school. He has realised that the main role of the British in India these days is to be laughed at, so he became a stand-up comedian.

She started out as a sound engineer in the University of Surrey and was working as an assistant sound engineer in Sphere Studios, writing and singing when she started recording her songs.

Clayton Hogermeer's band Jukebox has been a staple of the blueFROG Bar Nights every Tuesday rousing the hoards onto the dance floor with their lively old school covers. As a solo musician, Clayton draws influences from the '80 and the '90s and is inspired by artists such as Dylan and Mumford and Sons. His sets are a mix of folksy originals and popular covers. A favourite with the blueFROG crowd, one can often see him wandering around outside the club before a gig, with his guitar, serenading people and drawing them in.

Rohan Joshi
Rohan Joshi is a stand-up comedian, writer, columnist, and occasional screenwriter. He used to be a full-time journalist, and it was this strong background in the highest form of Indian comedy that there is, that inspired him to quit, and pursue comedy full-time. From opening for Vir Das to performing at the Fringe Festival, Edinburgh in 2011, Rohan has spent the last few years performing around India, and indeed, around the world. When he's not doing stand-up at comedy-clubs or for corporate clients, he's a member of Weirdass Comedy, India's first and foremost comedy consultancy, and improv troupe, the Cardinal Bengans. He is also a humour-columnist for the Mid-Day, one of Mumbai's largest tabloids. As a stand-up comedian, Rohan's material is political, observational, and adult in its sensibilities. Note however that "adult" does not always mean mature. Rohan resents the suggestion that he might in fact be mature. TIME Magazine put Rohan at #1 on their 100 Most Influential People Who Might Lie About TIME Magazine Statistics List, and Newsweek calls Rohan “Huh? Who?”

Karunesh Talwar
Karunesh Talwar is a young comic and writer who made his way into the local comedy scene by winning several open mic competitions, including the Comedy Store's RAW. When not doing stand-up, he can be found doing other things. Also, he's 1/7 billionth the population of the world. 

Daniel Fernandes
Daniel Fernandes bid adieu to a career in advertising and took to stand up comedy last year. His material is based on his experiences with travel, 69 failed relationships and his favourite Indian community amongst other things. He feels pretty much anything he has to face in life has comic potential so why not just laugh it off and pretend it never happened?   

Spud in the Box
Spud in the Box is a six piece Alternative Pop-Rock band formed in March 2011 in Mumbai.

It involves the musical energies Zubin Bhathena on bass, Rohan Rajadhakshya on vocals and keyboards, Ankit Dayal on vocals and guitar, Joshua Singh on drums and Hartej Sawhney and Siddharth Talwar on guitars. 

Concentrating on writing fresh original songs and creating a live show that exhilarates every single person in the audience is the general motto of the band. This has garnered them a large fan base over the last 2 years in Mumbai, along with many in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Delhi, and Pune as well. They have opened for some of the biggest acts in India like Indus Creed, Junkyard Groove and Raghu Dixit and have also opened for international artist, Norah Jones (at A Summer's Day in Mumbai). 

Groove Gully
Groove Gully is a mix of talented musicians. Formed in November 2012, they started out as a four piece band called FourPlay. Their line-up however changed in September 2013. Zian Alphonso on lead vocals [female], Tizaan Alphonso on keys and lead vocals [male], Vidit Tanwar on lead guitar, Keith Donald on bass and Rahul Iyer on drums and percussions.

Aadar Malik is an actor (lead in Indo-Canadian film "Under the Same Sun", released at various International Film Festivals across the world). He began performing stand-up comedy after portraying the character of a comic for his play, "Papier Mâché Petals"(thespo12 festival). Being a musician, writer, singer, he enjoys mixing music with his comedy. He hates pick-up lines, he prefers impressing women with his guitar.

Varun Thakur is an Actor and Comedian. Being a struggling actor from Bombay he's rejected on a daily basis by casting directors and rickshawaalas. His last film was 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' and he would like to clarify that Katrina and he are just "good friends". He's the Co-Founder of the Comedy troupe 'Schitzengiggles', one of India's premier Improv groups and creators of the Filmfail Awards on Zee cafe.

He's hugely popular on the corporate circuit with shows for a variety of brands like Star TV, SET Max, Top Gear, Radio Mirchi, Times of India , Titan to name a few. This fact is based on a survey he conducted and participated in. Alone. In his comedy special he becomes the audience's guide to Bombay, the city he loves to hate and laments about the life of a struggling actor without a producer uncle. With a good mix of personal stories, observational humour, impersonations and bad bio writing skills he's an act you shouldn't miss. He's also available for children's parties (if you want see them grow up really soon)!

Vikramjit Singh used to be a nice guy. Then he became angry, and when he couldn't get any angrier, he became funny. Rich people and the proverbial 'nice' people get his angst going, as does India's obsession with gyms and food. He calls his humour 'rib-tickling', and he loves an audience that has the stomach for it.

The Songbound Children's Choir first came to the blueFROG stage in March 2013, where they performed via live streaming with a choir from the Jesus College, Cambridge in the UK. It was a truly moving performance and we were certain we wanted to continue to support this wonderful initiative with more such performances.

Through partnerships with Indian NGOs Songbound provides weekly rehearsals and singing lessons to prepare the youngsters for workshops and performances alongside leading musicians and ensembles from across the globe such as the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, virtuoso violinist Veronika Eberle and the Choir of Jesus College Cambridge. 

Through setting up and sustaining choirs in India’s many slum communities, Songbound provides these children with the weekly opportunity to enjoy group singing in a safe environment as they prepare for collaborative events throughout the year with schools, choirs and other musicians worldwide. 

Songbound celebrates the diversity of musical traditions amongst its choir leaders who receive specialist training in choral direction from professional musicians. Songbound runs several choirs in various slum areas of Mumbai. Since starting to sing, the children have shown significant signs of development in confidence, focus in learning and diminishing aggression.

Songbound’s mission is to give India’s most impoverished children the regular opportunity to achieve their full potential through choir singing of the highest quality and creating close links with other musicians worldwide.

Formerly known as Nick Terranova, Las Vegas talent Starkillers has been cutting a swathe through the bolshier end of the global house music scene over the last few years with his tough-edged, eclectic sound. Blending big hooks and riffs, soaring vocals, thumping beats and mind-bending effects trickery, his sound is the perfect blend of high-octane, fierce energy and accessible appeal.  

It’s not about subtlety or tradition; instead its a question of pushing technology and sound to their limits, and creating in-your-face tracks with plenty of charisma and attitude. There’s nothing mundane going on here. Pitch bending leads, rugged bass, mind-warping FX, huge builds and drops; everything in a Starkillers track is designed for maximum impact on the dancefloor, and his potent blend of electro house groove and sharp trance-laced breakdowns has seen his records signed to huge labels including Doorn, Ultra and Spinnin. 

He’s succeeded without the hyperbole that surrounds so many other artists, his popularity speaking for itself with two of Beatport’s Top 25 biggest-sellers of 2009 (including a Number 1 during the same year with his remix of Armand Van Helden’s classic The Funk Phenomenon), and more sales smashes over the last two years. Then there’s his Essential New Tune accolade from Pete Tong and an IDMA Award nomination for his anthem Discoteka, and acclaimed remixes for some of the biggest names in the world - including Robbie Rivera, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Jerome Isma-Ae and iiO. More recently his track with the stunning Nadia Ali and 303lovers’ Alex Kenji, Pressure, has received huge support from DJs across the scene and smashed Beatport’s sales charts once again.

As well as his releases on Soundboy, Will has turned out remixes for A-Trak & Zinc, No Doubt with Major Lazer, Sub Focus and Toddla T to name a few and has continued to blur the line between Dance music genres.

2013 took Dismantle on a whirlwind round-the-world tour with Boxfresh and Vice Magazine to film ʻBefore Monday Comesʼ, taking in the nightlife of Stockholm, Berlin, Beijing, New York and London. Either side of this Will took to the road for a huge run of summer shows and festivals including Glastonbury, Hideout, Global Gathering, Tomorrowland, SW4, Pukkelpop and Bestival, cementing himself as a firm festival favourite.

Dismantle opened up 2014 with his huge remix of Jus Nowʼs ʻTun Upʼ, an absolute monster on the dance floor. The summer has also seen the release of his first compilation album on Toolroom Records for their Toolroom Knights series, including five very special exclusive tracks. Dismantle continues to release on Digital Soundboy and is embarking on some exciting collaborations.
