Have you seen veteran musicians and new butterflies playing together? Different kind of music? Original composition? In our Ahmedabad
On this 10th and the crazy part about this is, it’s a community led by artist. As Himanshu say’s “It’s an artist led community” and that’s not even the best part. IF you are a part of it, you will not know about the venue until a day before and the artists at the venue. The kind of mystery it amplifies gets you nothing but more curious about what it is and what happens there.
I had an exclusive sit down with Nicolette Gore – the founder of this community, Himanshu – latest addition in SSS and Siddhant – Been there since the first SSS. We had a lot to talk about and for you, They gave the lineup of the 1st anniversary of SSS.
“The beauty of it is, it totally goes against that stupid myth that musicians are all drunk and cocked up” – Himanshu
This event is to mark a year anniversary of SSS. The Festival AMUSED was to make a 6 month mark. Nicolette and team are responsible to connect music classes in Ahmedabad founded by musicians. The show was unprecedented one. Imagine, music classes by musicians, first timers and the band lineup which went on for 12 hours. If you were not there you missed it.
When asked why is she doing it and what’s it all about?
“I want to bridge the gap between the artists all over Ahmedabad because it’s quiet a spread out scene. We need a stronger community.”
She wants artists to have a great time and so she focuses more on getting the best sound in and out. A Recap SSS
One thing stuck with me, she said it’s just spending your money for the education of artist.
As mentioned by Siddhant. It’s a great platform for local people to come and explore different kind of music which they have never heard before. That’s the most important part. It’s like a backbone of all this. To bring more people to hear different kind of music. The first ever SSS was at Nicolette’s place and since then strength has been adding up. This 10th, as it complete a year, SSS is happening on a big platform, but no one knows when it’s happening because it’s a secret.
I asked them what’s the plan? They said they are going to have a big jam session with few veteran musicians and new musicians playing altogether.
They never reveal the band line up but they were kind enough to let me in on it.
LINE UP :
Mark Haydon with his band
Hermit guitarist with young guns
8 other contributing singer songwriters and few more

If you are from Ahmedabad music Scene, you know SSS has generated a mystery in the scene. When asked why the mystery and what’s behind that. She said “If I tell you there wont be a mystery, so, it will always gonna be a mystery”
It is Nicolette’s goodwill and hard work over the years that made it possible. She did nothing, created a WhatsApp group and took it from there.
She also wanted to find a talent because SSS started as an A&R company. That’s why she started open mic night to discover new artists. She is amazed by the amount of talent in the city, people who you never thought can sing or play did an amazing job.
