Press Release

10 years in the making.  This will be the 10th anniversary of the Boston Bhangra Competition.  SOLD OUT for the last 9 years…3,000 person attendance….the best teams from North America & Canada…advertising and promotion on international television via TV ASIA.  This is what you will get from the 10th annual Boston Bhangra Competition.  It looks like Boston Bhangra has found a niche market where they have been able to get some of the best teams from North America, some great live performing artists and cheap tickets to keep this an event on the up and up.  This year should be no different.

The Boston Bhangra Competition, called BBC for short, will be hosted on November 16th, 2013 at the Orpheum Theatre.  The event has been sold out every year at one of the most historical theatres in Boston, which is located at 1 Hamilton Place in Boston, MA.  The capacity is close to 3,000 people, and they hope to sell out for the 10th straight year.

This year, the competition will have teams from all over the US and Canada.  They will have teams from locations as far west as California, and as close as Boston.  States represented include California, Texas, Illinois, Virginia, North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Toronto Canada and of course Boston, MA. These teams have consistently done well in many competitions, and they will once again make it difficult on the judges.

Since this is the 10th year of Boston Bhangra, and we’re going all out this year! We don’t have one, not two, but three artists coming this year! We have a professional comedian, folk superstar and an urban legend coming that will light up the stage even brighter this year! You don’t want to miss it. Check out the information about the artists below:

Mickey Singh - Artist
Born and raised in India, Mickey began singing at the tender age of 3. After moving to the US at 14 Mickey explored his musical creativity and developed an artistic blend of South Asian and western sounds. With support from his family to pursue his artistic passion he recognized the importance of heritage and culture no matter where you might live in the world. Taking a different approach to Urban-Desi fusion Mickey is set to truly bridge the gap between Indian and American music genres. His music energetic and smooth at the same time creatively laces the best of east and west in a way that audiences everywhere can relate to. On stage Mickey creatively incorporates Hip Hop and Bhangra dance and is sure to get you out of your seats. Not being afraid to think outside the box, this singer/songwriter/producer is a breath of fresh-air in a market of overly commercial manufactured sounds.
