New look Sami mesmerizes Chicago

CHICAGO: Adnan Sami, the multi-talented pianist, singer, composer, actor, musician, and also the world’s fastest keyboardist, was back in Chicago after eight years with a spectacular show on Saturday, March 30 at Sears Center, Hoffman Estates, a north side suburb of Chicago. Sami mesmerized an enthusiastic crowd of more than 3800 for about three hours.

British-born 39-year old Sami started by singing “Allahu Akbar” and showing his virtuosity on the keyboard. He went on to sing a number of his popular songs like Mehbooba mehbooba, Meri baahon main, Kuch lafdaa hai, Udi udi, Bheegee bheegee raaton main and finally brought the curtain down with his famous song Lift kara de.

The evening began with a 13-minute non-stop performance by the new young talented group, Yeh Cheez. Guitar-playing Noman Khan danced amidst the crowd to “Challa.” He returned with a two minute medley of “Shahid Kapoor with a hint of Punjabi Tadka,” which started off with “Hadippa” and culminated in “Desi Boyz”.

Coming onstage to “Don’s Dialogue” in the background, Kevin Tony made the first moves and froze. Anand Bhatt joined him to a dialogue from “Rowdy Rathod” and performed the second verse. Finally, Khan and Sharma joined in to “Race 2’s Dialogue” and all eight performers danced to “Desi Boyz” remixed by DJ Afridi in an amazingly novel way, and transitioning seamlessly into “Gangam Style” which drove the crowd crazy.

Sponsors of the event Sunil Shah and Jasbir Suga of Suga Builders were invited onto the stage. Shah credited Karl Kalra, young and dynamic national promoter and CEO of Live 2 U Entertainment for bringing this lively show to Chicago.

Shah also recognized the Mayors of Schaumburg and of Hoffman Estates, Al Larson and William McLeod respectively. Both mayors thanked Sunil Shah and Karl Kalra for having invited them.
