Blue Sax, Pakistan’s pioneer blues/ jazz band, made the past weekend quite exciting for Lahoris by performing at an exclusive gig held at The Guitar School.


Kicking off their performance with an instrumental cover of Inteha Hogayi Intezaar Ki, the band’s set for the evening at The Guitar School included original songs Babu, Paisa, Mehmaan and Jaana. The band also performed covers of The Thrill Is Gone and Mustang Sally. Each tune was performed with skill, synchronization, precision, and professionalism to the hilt. The response from the audience was enthusiastic, making it a night of great music. Former lead vocalist of Junoon, Ali Azmat, who is part of the management of The Guitar School, was also in attendance.
