Tonight, we have an amazing night of live music at The Soundhouse Leicester all in aid of the wonderful charity Edgar’s Gift!

Edgar’s Gift is a charity set up in 2010 in memory of Ben Edkins, who passed away following a year long fight with cancer. He was just 25 when he died after battling Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of muscle cancer. The charity was founded by Ben’s parents Julie and Neil Bradman, alongside Ben’s family and friends – all of whom Ben influenced and had a special and positive effect on their lives. Edgar’s Gift aims to raise money to enable us to provide special days out, unique experiences and luxury gifts for young adults aged 18-30 who are suffering from cancer.

Even Nine
Even Nine was formed when brothers Jody and Rick Martin met up with Brett Stepto. Realising they all shared the same musical loves and ambitions, they set about writing and recording songs that include heartfelt, inspired vocals underpinned by an energetic, modern rock sound.
Shortly after, Even Nine released their self titled EP, followed in quick succession by a second EP ‘Feed’. Constant gigging and touring, support slots with the likes of ‘Fun lovin’ Criminals’, ‘Reef’ and ‘Rooster’ along with festivals throughout the UK including an open air performance in London’s Covent Garden and supporting ‘Dr John’ in front of 10,000 people at the Rock meets Blues festival, hugely increased the band’s fan base.
Regular airplay, interviews and acoustic sessions on both national and local radio, as well as being tipped by the music industry trade magazine Music Week as one of the ‘hottest unsigned bands’ helped feed a growing interest in the band as did receiving frequent rave reviews for both their EPs and energy packed live shows.
