The formation of Shere Khan began in 1993, when a few Forbes College students got together and created a new co-ed group known as “Inn Tune”. They started out singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” in the dining hall but gradually expanded, gaining new members and relocating performances to the 1879 Arch. In 1994 the group picked a new name and mascot, Shere Khan, the fierce tiger from The Jungle Book Disney classic, or is it Rudyard Kipling? They perform at various events on and off campus, arrange their own music and release biennial studio albums. They still find time for international tours, annual excursions to the Hamptons, and celebrations everywhere from Prospect Street to the Thai Village Restaurant. Shere Khan sees themselves as a family who connect, grow and share through pop and contemporary music. Their members are involved in a wide range of extracurricular activities and academic disciplines, but they all share a deep love and passion for music and for one another. They have travelled and performed across the globe. They are committed to creating a caring, inclusive and fun environment in the rehearsal room and beyond.
