EN2 made their debut performance at Phish's, Summer 2003 Verizon Wireless Music Center shows. Working the overnight shift for over 6,000 campers, the response was immediate and strong. Since then, EN2 has worked the Midwest and East Coast tirelessly, putting the bulk of their time in the Indianapolis and Chicago markets. EN2 increased their following over the next year as the house band at the Red Room in Broadripple (Indianapolis). In the following two years, EN2 gave over 300 performances in the midwest region, from CBGB's in NYC to Camp Zoe, Missouri. A hiatus followed, but in 2009 the band reunited and is currently planning their 2010 show schedule.
EN2 consists of Robert Coates (guitar), Joel Crabtree (Keyboards), and Vincent Jackson (drums). These musicians draw upon an array of styles and influences to create their own cutting-edge sound. By fusing elements of trance, funk, rock, and reggae with the improvisatory backbone of jazz, EN2 consistently reinvents the groove.
EN2 has shared the stage with such artists as Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Garaj Mahal, Yonder Mountain String Band, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Tea Leaf Green, The Greyhounds, Bump, and many others.
