Forefront made their debut in the music world in the year 1991 and from then
it was no looking back. The band took off right from the start by performing
for all the top shows in Goa, across India and abroad. The success story of
Forefront lies in their music they play, with strong stage presence and a
distinctive ability in sensing the pulse of their audiences. Their extensive
repertoire of English retro, latest billboard charts, bollywood and rock
music is what makes every party a big success. The band is powered by 5 top
musicians, namely Agatha Jilugu, Melvin Rosario, Agnelo Mascarenhas, Savio
Fernandes and Band leader Seby Pinto who are known for their tight
combination musically. Their performances draw attention of everyone at a
party, ballroom dance or at a concert. The crowd shouting out for more and
not wanting to leave the floor is a regular feature for every show.
Their recent performance in Macau China was a feather in their cap. They
represented Goa for the "15th Lusofonia Festival" which was held in Macau
on 16th and 21st October 2012. They performed along with nine countries
including Brazil and Portugal and their performance earned them 2nd place.

combination and will set the dance floor on fire.
