Since forming nearly 10 years ago, Episode 23 have written a raft of acclaimed original material and gigged extensively across the UK. Their efforts have been rewarded in the form of numerous appearances with acts such as Ash, Goldie Lookin Chain, Twisted Wheel and Embrace, on the back of their Nottinghamshire ‘Battle of The Bands’ title winning performance.
During a number of appearances throughout 2012, Episode 23 experimented with unique interpretive performances of carefully chosen cover songs. The reception from various audiences was overwhelming. A well known track, together with the creative touch, bespoke engineering and iconic sound that only Episode 23 can produce, was a mix to get any party started. Gradually, the band’s direction began to change as a result of further bookings for private events, with a greater portion of the material evolving to be cover tracks.
The band, made up of Charlie (Guitar & Vox), Tom (Drums & Vox), Ben (Guitar) & Nick (Bass & Vox) all have a passion for music, with a high level of attention to detail. Having listened to, and watched a number of entertainment acts and cover bands across the country, Episode 23 felt that very few captured the essence of the original artists whilst successfully delivering the material in a bespoke, accurate and passionate way.
By having a broad grasp on songwriting concepts and its intricacy, Episode 23 realise the importance of respecting the work of the original artist. The band now pride themselves on choosing tracks which can be delivered effectively in live performances.
Episode 23 cater for all ages, and tastes – from 60’s Rock and Roll to modern classics. Their staple diet of gigs now comes from private parties, weddings, and corporate events.
