Boston Bhangra Hosts 11th Annual Boston Bhangra Competition
If you like Bhangra, Boston was the place to be on November 22nd, 2014! Boston Bhangra, Inc hosted their 11th annual Boston Bhangra Competition, called BBC for short, at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. This was their eleventh straight sell out event with close to 3,000 people in attendance. Bhangra fans were in attendance by the boat load!! This included both South Asians and Americans alike! There were at least 30% non-south Asians in the audience which is showing just how diverse a dance Bhangra is becoming!
The competition level was very diverse and extremely competitive as they had teams from all over North America. Teams hailed from California, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and of course, Boston. These teams put on a great show and made it very difficult for the judges.
All 12 teams put on a great show, but after everything was done, 3rd place went to Da Real Punjabiz from California, 2nd place went to Furteelay Shokeen from Michigan, and 1st place went to Nachde Shokeen Gabroo from California.
To add even more excitement to the event, Boston Bhangra had a special performance by the world famous Bhangra star, Benny Dhaliwal! The crowds went wild for him as he showcased his vocals to the audience. In addition to that, Jas Johal, the UK entertainer/MC extraordinaire hosting the night with MC Jagz from NJ.
Passage to India was the food vendor of choice as they sold snacks, dinner and drinks at the venue.
Overall, this was a very successful year for the Boston Bhangra Competition, as all the pieces came together and everybody enjoyed the 4 hour show.
E3NA, Ocean Spray, Foley Hoag, Passage to India, and India New England are some of the bigger sponsors that helped to make this show a reality.
