RJG's Last UK Show
AN EMOTIVE EVENING
An evening described by Metal Talk journalist Liz Medhurst as "A Moment, not just for The Enid but also for music history", the band wish to thank all who made it to London's Cadogan Hall on Saturday to experience Robert's last official UK show with them.
Engaging in at least three standing ovations throughout the concert, the audience carried the band's emotionally-charged performance right through to the end. The most powerful moments were without a doubt the encores. Beginning with a fully fledged rendition of Leviticus, the rest of the band then left the stage leaving Robert in the spotlight for an intimate solo piano performance of 'Til We're Old. He then stood to deliver a familiar excerpt from Night of the Iguana by Tennessee Williams before crossing the footlights and joining the audience, sharing a beautiful and powerful message of love and unity. At this point the band re-entered the stage to perform One and the Many, with Zachary Bullock taking his place at RJG's keyboards. The pressure on Zach must have seemed unimaginable to most, and he truly proved himself, delivering his performance with the utmost bravery, courage and humility.
The band feel that Liz's review is a perfect write up of the evening and what it symbolised to everyone there.
ENIDI Summer Fete
SATURDAY 30th JULY 2016
A new event concept unlike anything tried before, next week the band will be announcing the launch of tickets for our upcoming Enidi gathering, taking place in Northampton.
Evolved from last year's Enidi Summer BBQ, the band felt they could take it a step further this year and do a Summer Fete. This means they will be inviting Enidi members to participate (if they want to) by setting up stalls where they can share their own passions with us - a real two way experience which it's hoped will give everyone a day of variety and opportunity to discuss each other's work.
Available on a first come first serve basis, a limited number of spaces will be allocated for Enidi members to present artwork, photography or anything else they may wish to display. There will also be opportunities for other musicians within the Enidi to perform acoustically throughout the day. The evening will come complete with a traditional performance from the band and a serving of home cooked food.
Tickets and further location details will be announced mid April, so please put the 30th July in your diary as we look forward to the summer together.
