         WE MAKE MUSIC !!! 

The band was formed way back in 1985 by a group of young friends with the aim of providing good music to Goan all over. Today they have grown to be regarded as one of the Top Dance bands not only in Goa but over India and the Middle East.

     The band started initially as a pop-rock band with a hard sound, but has gradually mellowed over the years. They have toured extensively all over India performing from rock concerts to Gala Dances and were the pioneer band to open up the Gulf market for Goan bands when they performed for the New Year dance in Dubai way back in 1987.

'Purple Rain' is famous for their original composition "BALA BALA MUSIC" which is a favorite with the crowds all over. They also have to their credit other original compositions like, PAPA DAY, MAGICIANS BLUES, HELLO LADY AND SADAM HUSSEIN (MAKE IT ALL RIGHT) which was composed during the Gulf war.

On the Indian circuit they have to their credit several performances in Bombay, cochin, Hyderabad, Madras, Bangalore and Manipal. They have preformed as the opening band for the concerts of the Top Indian Bands: Indus Creed, Shiva and Brahma. In Goa they perform regularly for weddings, concerts, musical shows and have been performing fro the famous Goan Food and Cultural Festival besides the Arlem and Kingfisher festivals every year, since their inception.

The present setup of Purple Rain comprises of:
