“I have seen Cauldronated many times and an observation I have time and time again is that most of the crowd have turned up for Cauldronated and Cauldronated only. Whether they play first, second, third or headline the punters crowd into the auditorium to hear their well rehearsed and foot tappy delights and then leave as swiftly as they arrived. What is it about them that captivates? Charisma is high on the list! Eva Menon and Dave Barbarossa could stand stock still for 45 minutes in some kind of chiaroscuro performance art piece and still enthrall an audience to death. You either have it or you don’t and these guys have it in abundance!!!!”
“As I have stated in previous reviews the set is highly polished, well rehearsed and Eva has become a more confident and consummate performer. She owns that stage and makes the proceedings compelling and intriguing!! This was the light that shone brighter than the other performers on this bill and in my opinion they just have to try harder. I do remember briefly having a listen to the last artist on stage, David ID, and I found his soundscapes interesting and they deserve further investigation but the performance had the enthusiasm sucked out of it by the fact that there was only a few people left to witness it. David ID called it quits after I’d heard two tracks mumbling, if I remember correctly ” What’s the point?” Grab peoples attention and don’t let it go I suppose is the point!
