VERTICAL BAND was formed in September of 2002 and has ever since achieved great success in performing regular gigs & special events in their home base of Bali.
Now performing with an evolved personnel line up whereas there's Niar as the female vocalist, Zakki as the male vocalist, Yuda on the drums, Dicky on the keyboards, Asrul on the bass, and Rio on the guitar - they move the crowds with their harmonious repertoire ranging from the latest Top 40 party hits, sweet swings of jazz line up, evergreen rock anthems, groovy Rn'B soul tunes and sexy latino beats.
Their taste in music really shows character and is an integral part of their identity. Their music is who they are. The songs of their youth, heard a thousand times by millions worldwide, fill their head-space with stray lyrics and infectious grooves - creating a filter for the way they see, hear and understand the world from then on out. Infamous names like Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Carlos Santana, James Brown, Chuck Berry, and the more modern sounds of Amy Winehouse, Pharell Williams, Aviici, Coldplay & Bruno Mars vastly influence the way they entertain on stage.
Some venues that Vertical have performed at includes; Hard Rock Cafe Bali, Hard Rock Hotel Bali, Kamasutra Kuta, Boshe Kuta, Blue Eyes Sanuri, Santa Fe Seminyak, Obsession Bar Seminyak, Jazz Bar & Grill Sanur, Liquid Cafe Makassar, Caesar Cafe Yogyakarta, Zappas Seminyak, Bamboo Bar Kuta and Superstar Disco Taiwan.
