God created the man and woman, blessed them to multiply and enjoy the life. But they were tempted to commit sin. God forgive all these sins. He gave them time to enjoy at festivities, marriages, child birth, etc. In the same to mourn when there are calamities, deaths etc. These celebrations are with music especially the use of drums and wind instruments.
The present day “NEW STAR BAND” was started by late Mr. Gregory Suares in the year 1945 with his two young sons and friends. As the time passed some of these friends moved away in search of jobs. With a strong determination, whatever the knowledge he had, he continued with his sons. In 1956 he established himself with his sons and two nephews to form a full set of eight members.
As there was great demand and competition from the well established groups, it was really difficult to progress. As the sons growing with education and music, by early sixties we were well established band set. We were moving with only White and Khaki uniforms.
As the time progressed, the knowledge developed all the four brothers ( Peter, Boniface, Thomas and Antony) were completely into it. It was very easy as all of us were nearby and we grew very strong. Due to personal engagements, the younger brothers moved out of native place but the father and the senior brothers took the burdens. Unfortunately Mr. Gregory Suares breathed his last in 1980, Then the elder brothers shouldered the responsibility.
The two brothers with their children continued to build on the foundation laid by their father. These children are now grown as teachers, engineers, accountants but still join hands to support the parents. Some are moved to Gulf states and USA but they are there at the time of necessity.
It is by the grace of God that our members in Dubai joined together to entertain the BOKC members during the annual day celebration. We are really proud of it.
Unfortunately the eldest of the four brothers Mr. Peter was called to rest in the year 2005. The burden was on Mr. Boniface, supported by his son Mr. Winston. Mr.Thomas used to come from Gulf to support along with other family members.
At present we are a very strong group with different coloured uniforms to meet the demands along with string instruments, keyboard and wind instruments.
We are grateful to our friends , relatives and all well wishers who supported us throughout. They really took us to other districts of Karnataka. NEW STAR BAND members are grateful to all who were with us throughout the journey. Without you people, we wouldn’t have been identified by other people. We are confident that we will try our best to satisfy your needs to the best of our ability. We remember you all in our prayers and may the almighty bless us all.
