The Vinay Kaushal Collective (VKC) is the brainchild of Vinay Kaushal, a graduate of the Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles. A versatile composer and guitar player, his compositions have a unique sound that encompass several genres and appeal to an audience of all ages. 

The idea behind the Collective is to embrace a cross section of musicians with a singular passion for creating music that is vibrant and new while still staying true to the influences of jazz, blues and world music. The Vinay Kaushal Collective is comprised of a troupe of accomplished musicians, who have travelled across the world to both study music and perform.

The beauty of the Collective is its adaptability. It has performed shows from two piece sets to shows comprising of quintets. Its energy and hip sounds make it a popular choice for trendy venues and corporate gigs alike.

The VKC has performed at venues like Blue Frog, the National Centre for Performing Arts, Shisha Jazz Café, Hard Rock Cafes and many more. Some of their favourite gigs have been for corporates like Mercedez Benz, BMW, Fiat, Hyundai and the Dutch Embassy as well! It has been a part of the International Jazz Festival in Mumbai with Vinay Kaushal featured as one of the top 20 jazz artists in India. The VKC has also been listed by the Polka Café Magazine as one of the top jazz bands in India.
