Boston Bhangra Competition 2009

Press Release
10/22/2009

Balle Balle Balle!  It’s that time of the year again, and Boston Bhangra, Inc is hosting their 6th Annual Boston Bhangra Competition on Saturday, November 14th, 2009.  Their past 5 competitions have all sold out, and were a phenomenal success!  They have consistently gotten the best bhangra teams in North America and Canada to come and compete in Boston.  This year will be no different.

This year, the Boston Bhangra Competition, or called BBC for short, will be hosted on November 14th, 2009 at the Orpheum Theatre.  The historic venue in downtown Boston adds a nice flair to the competition which is located at 1 Hamilton Place in Boston, MA.  The capacity is close to 3,000 people, and its very conveniently located in the Downtown Crossing area.  Boston Bhangra hopes to sell out for the 6th straight year even with a slow economy.  Based on the demand and excitement from past years, that could very well happen.

This year, the competition will have teams from all over the US and Canada.  They will have teams from Canada, California, New York, Virginia, Boston and potentially more locations.  These teams have consistently done well in many competitions, and they will once again make it difficult on the judges.

To add even more excitement to the event, Boston Bhangra will have special performances by the world famous G Sharmilla and Dr. Zeus.  These artists have made the famous songs: Sat Sri Akaal, Ussi Haan Punjabi, Akhaan Da Nishana, among many more.  G Sharmilla is one of the biggest names in Bhangra right now as his songs are hitting the top of the charts.  Dr. Zeus is probably the largest current South Asian producer in the world with many albums under his name and his many future albums waiting for release over the next several years.  They will even be releasing their new album at the competition with some new hit songs!  Just another reason to come to the event!

Bollywood Grill will be the food vendor of choice as they will be serving snacks, dinner and drinks at the venue, so come hungry so that you can enjoy their fantastic food!

The show will once again be advertised and aired internationally on Sahara One, Filmy and Ravi internationally!  North America, Canada, UK and Europe will get to see the ads and airing of the full show over the next several months!  This is the only South Asian competition in the US that has this kind of international exposure! 

Overall, this is a huge year for the Boston Bhangra Competition, as they are getting heavily involved with television, bringing great teams to a historic theatre, and serving great food!  This is not a show that you want to miss!  The tickets are very nominally priced between $20 to $40 so that everybody can enjoy the show!  This is very cheap for a show that will be highlighted with more than 3 hours of exciting bhangra!  Boston Bhangra really wants the community from all walks of life to enjoy the show.

Sahara One, Bollywood Grill, India New England and Desiclub are some of the bigger sponsors that have helped to make this show a reality.

Don’t miss this much anticipated event being held at the Orpheum Theatre on November 14th!  Buy your tickets early before they’re sold out!  For more information, visit www.bostonbhangra.com.  You can also e-mail: info@bostonbhangra.com, or call 617-448-2508 for more information.
