En Gedi
Like a Train

En Gedi is a Christian rock and blues band comprised of two father and son teams. First you have Nathan (son) on guitar and lead vocals, and his father, Gerard, on percussion. Secondly, there is Mike (father) on keyboards and bgv, and his son Aaron on Bass. If the make up of the band isn’t cool enough, their music is even cooler. This form of Christian blues is very rare, and hard to find.

It seems that the fathers have had the dominant musical influence over their sons. When Nathan was six he started playing guitar, and by the age of eleven he was into guitar greats Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray. Nathan, an excellent guitar player, is also backed up an equally strong band. Together the band blends with a nice smooth tempo.

With so much good music it’s hard to lay a few tracks out as my favorite, but a few did stick out more than the others. First, “Life Boat,� with its subtle melodic intro that builds up to a tenacious crescendo and guitar solo; secondly, “Paid Up,� for many of the previously stated reasons, plus the glorifying message of the song, and lastly, my favorite, “Can’t Be True.� The guitar playing on this track will just blow you away.

As an independent band, their greatest hope is that we all spread the word. The band has a myspace page < > and an official web site – Go there, buy the music, and get them out on the road!

A few comments, suggestions....
I really like the music, I'm impressed because I don't remember having this good of music in Minot at all.
The guitar and bass tone is really impressive on the tracks. I really like the clarity of the Drums on Like a train. Very nice. I'd love to see you guys live! I used to be in a 4 piece electric band and now I'm kicking it acoustic style...but I'm impressed. Continue serving Jesus because it's making a difference!

Man! You guys are stinkin' awesome. And the message is even better. Give us a holler if you guys ever come to Texas! Keep rocking for the Lord. God Bless.
