April / Press

"By 10:20PM, everyone had fastened their seatbelts and were ready to finally begin the eagerly awaited ride to the worlds of APRIL and AMADEUS AWAD. The first took them on a journey of some exquisite OPETH and BLACKMORE NIGHT songs, emanating from the lips of the impressive Rachel and the very talented members accompanying her, in particular the keyboardist Raffi Nordiguian and guitarist Richard Samia, who both had some jaw-dropping solos that left the audience in awe. APRIL played for 50mins there, delivering a polished performance with not a single technical glitch nor a slump by the vocalist, who was a joy to listen to with her addictive voice that you keep urging to fill your ears."

"April also brought the bar to life with their unusual sound and energetic show, played a set of their modern take on Psychedelic Celtic Rock tunes. The crowd loved the amazing buzz and interaction with the bands and everyone had a great time enjoying the musical vibes."

"The thirteenth might generally be considered an unlucky number but not for Amadeus Awad, who chose to launch his debut album 'Time of the Equinox' exactly one year ago today. Join with him and the band for a night of experimental and often improvised musical accomplishment. Support comes from the intriguing psychedelic Celtic rock of energetic singer and band 'April'."

"April, the best Celtic rock band in town, started off with a Blackmore’s Night song: “Diamonds and Rust”, one of my favorites. April’s voice was really harmonious and suited well the style. All the musicians of the band were particularly zealous in their work; we could feel passion emanating from their music. I can even say that I liked their cover better than the original song!"
