We are an acoustic duo performing classic rock and pop, primarily (but not exclusively) from the 70's. We also do some blues and some some of our original music.
Forget everything you think you know about acoustic acts. Enigma isn’t like anyone else.
Enigma is aptly named: they are hard to define, and hard to classify. Enigma is kind of like a four-piece band that doesn’t realize it’s an acoustic duo.
When you think about acoustic acts, you probably think things like “pretty,” “quiet,” and “laid-back.” While Enigma can be both quiet and pretty, they are so much more than that. With David Epp’s complex and dynamic guitar work, Carolyn Olesen’s expressive, chameleon-like vocals, and rich, exquisite harmonies, Enigma can get a crowd laughing, dancing and singing along with every song they play.
Enigma is “old-school” when it comes to professionalism and performance. You won’t see anyone reading words off an iPad or following chords in a notebook. Nor will you see anyone sitting languidly on a stool while singing or playing; Enigma is energetic, up-front, and in-your-face. Enigma believes in delivering a well-rehearsed, thoroughly planned show, a roller-coaster specifically designed for each venue and each audience, be it a rowdy night at the bar, a laid-back evening at a winery, a party, a wedding, a wake, or, yes, we’ve even done a few funerals.
So forget what you think you know about acoustic acts. Enigma is truly something out of the ordinary.
