It is almost impossible to understand why this band does not have a record label and a huge following. Every single one of their songs tonight is brilliantly written and performed with energy and passion.

Each member of the band is incredibly talented, and all four members meld together into a kind of melting pot of music which results in incredible songs that audience members want to sing to, dance to and absorb through every pore.

The vocalist, Rob Derbyshire, has a huge vocal range which allows him to sing with an immense amount of power – matched by the talented guitarist Dan Moores who supplies Rob with incredible riffs and melodies for him to bounce off – both vocally and physically, it seems, as he dances on stage. It is easy to see, especially during set finisher "Sold" how these two interact so well together, the musical chemistry and energy is amazing to watch.
One cannot forget the other two members, however. Strong, confident and quick drumming from Nick Jackson backed by perfectly executed basslines from Nick Davies support the songs and complete them – leaving the finished product to get full marks every time.

Songs such as "Birds Eye View" and "Dreamcatcher" are packed with climax after climax, and the former especially leaves me almost breathless as I feel like I've followed the song up and up to its crescendo.

I would recommend anybody with a desire to see powerful, strong, good quality rock music performed to go and see this band – you will be astounded. - Noise Makes Enemies

JESUS IN INDIA started life in 2005 as an accident. thrown together not by fate, but their college lecturer. The musically polarised forces of Rob Derbyshire and Dan Moores worked together to write and record their own material though both had wildly different influences; Dan was raised on Nirvana, Bowie, The Doors and The Pixies; Rob's influences being a wide mix of artists from Earth Wind And Fire to Linkin Park.

Their early songs were eclectic acoustic oddities and despite their differences they both shared a love for powerful alternative Rock music. Dan's notoriously aggressive manner of attacking an acoustic guitar complemented the simply astounding and unique talent of Rob, whose voice is so powerful and amazing people will stop him on the street to compliment it.

By the start of 2006 they had grown more than tired of playing as an acoustic duo and sought two other members to expand to a 4 piece rock band. They acquired Nick Jackson on drums and Nick Davies on bass, both excellent players. With their combined high level of musicianship and stage presence, the band developed a very powerful commercial rock sound that would not be out of place next to such luminaries as the Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro or Queens Of The Stone Age. Rob's unique and mind-blowing vocal talent is showcased over disharmonious yet wildly infectious riffs that combine heavy rock sounds with a lo-fi garage cool. Over the past two years they have played over 300 gigs up and down the country whilst simultaneously developing their sound with the aid of award winning producer John Kettle. Jesus In India have been played on several radio stations, national TV, and have been written about with enthusiasm in both the printed and online press. Recently they have teamed up with Stockport-based management company Leaf Promotions to help manage and reach a wider audience, and are working towards releasing an E.P. by the summer of 2009. Jesus In India can be found playing very regularly in many different places.
