MuZik StreeT as a band was born at Asansol, West Bengal, India. The initial line up contained 7 members and then as of now they have concreted down to 5 (the usual stuff)! Music as a full time career option was not really appreciated by guardians of the band members, yet overcoming all odds and obstacles the band is still alive and rocking since the past 5 years. In this journey they have had some hindrances but music was to win all of them and that is exactly what happened! UIT, Burdwan was the first competition that they appeared in and guess what, they won! To add to that the band at that point in time was a mere 7 days old group! This was followed by a series of events like Muzik Street was ranked finalists in Band-E-Mataram II (Kolkata). After the talent hunt, the band was covered by the media, including Aamar 106.2 FM, Tara Muzik, S-FM 93.5, Sangeet Bangla and others. Till date the band has performed live in places like Kolkata, Siliguri, Midnapur, Maldah, Durgapur, Burdwan, Asansol and other places in West Bengal.

The genre of music that Muzik Street as a unit deals with is unique. It covers contemporary rock to Indian Classical, Blues to Folk. Basically it is a mixed package.
