Popular Bangladeshi band LRB (Love Runs Blind) has decided to withdraw its membership from the Bangladesh Musical Band Association, Bamba permanently.
LRB has sent a letter signed by Ayub Bachchu, lead vocal of the band, to the member in charge of Bamba on Friday. LRB shared the letter on its Facebook page also. When contacted to the lead guitarist Ayub Bachchu of the LRB, he confirmed to the Dhaka Tribune about the move. He said: “The reason behind leaving Bamba for lifetime is our band’s personal issue. Actually, we are busy with our band’s own activities, and not able to give time in Bamba anymore. So, we thought of leaving it.”
On the other hand, the social network buzzed with criticism of the concert ahead of Twenty20 World Cup on Thursday. Several people alleged that local band Miles was prevented from their scheduled performance at the programme. A number of Facebook profiles also slammed LRB for playing 40 minutes instead of 20 minutes in the concert.
