Enidi Firebird 800x565DOMINIC TOFIELD

Dom is leaving the band to teach drumming at a school in Tamil Nadu, Southern India. He leaves as a good friend. Without his drive and enthusiasm, the band would not have got to where they are today. He leaves us with an enigmatic and highly symbolic drawing as a parting gift.

Dom’s Vision

Zach and Jason inside an egg. The Enidi curled up into a nest. A Phoenix bird providing the history, protection, and inspiration. All set against the image the uncertain tomorrow in which the egg will hatch. (Click the picture to see full size.)

JASON AND ZACH – BACK TO THE FUTURE

Resurgency was what it was. A therapy to repair and restore the spirit of The Enid. A vehicle of self-discovery.

Zach and Jason have formed a strong musical friendship and are in for the long haul. They really want to re-explore the best of the band’s output from the last four decades and bring it to the generations who have never heard of any of it.

New music will come in its own time. RJG will continue to lend a guiding hand to Jason and Zach. Next week the three of them are off to Ant’s House in East Germany to learn about things like cadences, voice leading, auxiliary chords, the tricks of modulation and how to avoid being in root position all the time.

ROBERT JOHN GODFREY AND THE ENID UNPLUGGED

The band’s plan is to work out the way to make live performances as dynamic and emotional as ever without the obligatory drum kit demanded of main stream rock.  There are just six weeks before the show at The Citadel in St Helens in October. RJG together with Zach and Jason will be showing you how this can happen.

THE CITADEL ST HELENS

We have one more very special show planned for you this year, at The Citadel, St Helens. The show will take place on Saturday 21 October, and will feature RJG, Jason, and Zach. This promises to be a truly memorable night. Tickets are £16 and available from here.

THE ENIDI CONVENTION SAT 17TH MARCH 2018

The band will be performing at The Enidi Convention to be held as usual at The Black Prince in Northampton on Sat 17th March.

THE ENID AT HOME

Friendly Monthly Get-Togethers - Good Conversation - Curry -  Music & More

The Enid have always enjoyed a close relationship with their fans and “fellow travelers”, and this is going to continue and develop more closely than in the recent past.

Look out for RJG’s curry nights, impromptu parties, musical seminars and philosophical debate.

VIRTUALLY LIVE

Operation Thursday Launches 9th Nov 8:30 pm

Full live performances may not be on the agenda for a while, but this certainly doesn’t mean that you’ll miss seeing Jason and Zach (and RJG) playing together regularly.

In fact, you’re going to be able to see them playing more often than the band has done in the past, streamed to your PC, mobile, tablet or smart-TV and sound system from the band’s rehearsal studio in Northampton.

WATCH THE FUTURE TAKING SHAPE

The Green Room at The Lodge has been substantially refurbished as a performance and broadcast studio which is capable of broadcasting HD audio and video performances streamed over the internet to a combination of Facebook and specialist YouTube (and other channel sources).

 

 

 

On Saturday, August 5th, I will be joining forces with The Enid for a special concert at London’s wonderful Union Chapel to celebrate my 70th birthday with all my friends, past present and future. I do hope that you will come. Tickets are available from here (or here if you are a member of The Enidi).

 

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…"  - Charles Dickens

It’s our absolute pleasure to announce that Resurgency is now available for pre-sale.
