Some of the best shots from Enchi’s tour of Mindanao in January 2008.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    We caught the 7 a.m. boat from Dumaguete to Cebu. Considering these guys just finished their weekly 'Reggae Wednesday' gig at Hayahay only a few hours before, I thought it was amazing that everybody was there. A few had only had an hour of sleep. Showbiz ain't easy!

    No roadies for Enchi (yet) so everybody carried their own instrument. Here's Dave getting off at the Sibulan pier in Cebu.

    After a four-hour van ride, our next leg was on the massive Superferry from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro in Mindanao. The trip goes overnight and arrives very early the next morning in Cagayan. Here's the band's bunks on the overnight ferry.

    Within an hour we were out of sight of any land and steaming across the Bohol Sea. Overnight boats are definitely one of my favorite ways to get around the Philippines. You'll avoid the cramped quarters of the typical bus or plane, and have the option of getting up on the top deck for some fresh sea breeze.

    What do pirates (and musicians) like to drink on a long sea voyage? Jack Sparrow fans got it right, the answer is: rum. In this photo the band is up on the top deck of the Superferry passing around a generously-sized bottle of Tanduay 'tagay' style.

    When it got too chilly on the upper deck, we moved in to the Superferry's canteen. The attendant there kept saying 'Free me. Ice cream.' Still not exactly sure what she was talking about. Was she offering us free ice cream or asking us to free her from her employment contract by buying off the managment with a few ice cream sandwiches? Unfortunately, we'll never know.

    We had one stop enroute to Cagayan de Oro: Surigao City. Some passengers unloaded here and we had about an hour to wander around the pier and get off the boat.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    A few of us ended up in this karaoke bar on the Surigao pier. They had a house band playing some 'Top 40' songs, but this being the Philippines, once they found out we had musicians in our group we were invited on stage. In this shot you can see Enchi drummer Harold getting situated behind the kit.

    We had to go back through security to get back on the ship, just in time before we cast off from the pier and enroute to Cagayan.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    We arrived in Cagayan de Oro at sunrise and were met by a van which would take us to the final destination: Bukidnon. The road trip from Cagayan to Bukidnon was many hours and enroute lead guitarist Paul entertained everyone with his hoodie find at an 'Ukay Ukay' shop. Guess it must have looked a little closer to his size in the shop before he bought it?

    One of the local radio stations along the way wanted to get a live interview with the band.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Everybody got a chance to say hi to the audience live on-air. In this photo, trumpet player Mark is probably telling radioland to come to the Enchi gig tonight.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    After the interview and hours in the van, we were looking for lunch.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    We found a great local 'lechon manok' (rotisserie chicken) spot where we bought a couple of birds for lunch.

    The concert organizer hired a truck to drive the band around town with a banner on it to promote the gig around sunset. January 18th is also my brother Preston's birthday, so happy b-day, P!

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    For some reason we had a full military guard along for the ride. Basically we drove around town waving to people and trying to get them to come out for the Enchi concert later that night.

    Once again, Enchi stopped off at a local radio station for some live on-air interviews to promote the concert that night.

    Trumpet and trombone players Mark and Dave were pretty careful to heed the 'No Smoking' sign at the radio studio in Bukidnon.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Enchi was booked to play the biggest venue in town: the basketball stadium. The military escort stuck with us to make sure no groupies were able to interrupt the band's soundcheck before the big show.

    Hope this guy knows what all those dials on the mixing board can do, because I definitely have no idea.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Everybody got their instruments tuned up and plugged in after the long trip from Dumaguete.

    Harold had a nice carpet for his drum kit.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Bembem has a pretty cool selection of effects pedals for his guitar. He told me once that before he got into reggae he was in a heavy metal band. I think that's why he still has that rockin' metal guitar and pedals?

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Raul working through some scales on his saxophone. I play with Raul in our band 'Frying Nemo'. He's definitely the most rockin' sax player I've ever known!

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The early crowd started to arrive during the sound check. Enchi is on the radio across the Philippines and has built up a pretty huge audience with their unique style of Visayan reggae.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The ampitheater was soon to be completely packed with Enchi fans.

    After the sound check we had a little down time before the gig so the band hung out in the van sent by the concert organizer.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Enchi gave me free reign to roam around the stage during the entire show. Concert photography is definitely a lot of fun, you've got the energy of the band, the crowd, and the music so it's a pretty awesome thing to get to photograph. In this photo, Enchi is laying down their intro groove to get the crowd in the mood for some epic Visayan reggae.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Enchi's music is really upbeat and fun, but they usually start each concert with a heavy jam in a minor key. Definitely creates a cool atmosphere for what's to come. In this photo, the lighting rig operator is cued in to the vibe the band is trying to create and darkened all the lights in the house except this red one on Harold the drummer.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Harold is one of Dumaguete's most talented drummers. I've been lucky to share the stage with him many times when he played with our band, 'Frying Nemo'.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Harold loves to play jazz, so his beats are always a little bit funky. In this shot, he's leading the intro for the band's first song.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Lead guitarist Paul is probably the most understated member of the band. He's usually pretty quiet and doesn't do anything crazy when he's on stage. He puts everything into his guitar performance, using his awesome talent to embellish and accent each song.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The crowd was standing-room only on the floor and it was pretty awesome to see how they were reacting to the songs from the stage.

    Aside from being a great musician, Raul is a great song writer, contributing songs, arrangements, and composition ideas to both Enchi and Frying Nemo's music.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    At the Bukidnon gig Enchi had a full stage rig of smoke machines and lights.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Bass player Oswald had the rockin'est sunglasses of any member in the band.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The band was definitely reacting to the awesome energy from the crowd in Bukidnon.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    It was pretty awesome to hang out on stage and take in the scene.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    BemBem has an amazing ability to connect with the audience. I don't think anyone from the crowd in Budkidnon had ever seen Enchi playing live and as you can see they were totally mesmerized by the band's performance.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Getting a few thousand people to wave their arms for you is tougher than it looks.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    BemBem put down his guitar for several songs so he could interact more directly with the audience. Paul took over as the only guitar in the band.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Enchi has a great chemistry between band members when they're playing a concert. Definitely one of the things I really wanted to capture while I was up there shooting with them.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Once again, BemBem's skill as a performer had the complete attention of the audience.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Here's a Harold's-eye view from behind the drum kit.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    If you've never heard Enchi before, you should definitely check out their music--I still have their songs in steady rotation on my playlists.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    I was trying not to be too obtrusive on stage, but as the only foreigner in the crowd that was pretty tough.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Raul, Mark, and Dave hold down the Enchi horn section with some great riffs.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Definitely the biggest show in Bukidnon on a Friday night in January.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Hard to believe that these guys had barely slept in three days, had traveled by bus, boat, and flatbed truck, all while drinking liters of rum. Filipino rock stars?

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Paul got a pretty cool tattoo from Dumaguete's most famous tattoo artist, Oliver.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    I forgot to ask BemBem if those are doctor's scrubs that he's wearing. Perhaps he should be called 'Dr. Reggae'? Ok, maybe that was pretty bad.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The only rock star thing I didn't see BemBem do at this gig was crowd surf.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Raul is pretty humble about how much of a badass he is on the sax.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Oswald is definitely one of the best bass players I've ever met in the Philippines.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Can we get an encore?

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Um, ok.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    And there was much rejoicing.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    And groupies rushing the stage.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Good thing we had all those guys with M-16 to protect us from all those chilled-out reggae fans...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Just in case anyone's worried, the soldier took the bullets out of the gun before Raul started playing with it. This is definitely one of those 'don't try this at home examples'.

    Enchi had another gig for Saturday night so the band slept in and rested up at the hotel for another night of Visayan reggae rock-stardom.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    And just a few hours later it was game time again, this time at a new venue and in front of another packed house.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Mark has a bit of a psychedelic thing going on with the smoke in the background--rastafari!

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    BemBem was again front and center, winning over the audience one person at a time.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    This gig was at a fiesta fairground so not as much room for Bem to dance around unfortunately.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The crowd was digging the groove.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Once again, I was allowed to roam around on stage to get some new angles on the performance.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The magician of Visayan Reggae... Ok, maybe that's pretty lame too, but had to come up with something to say about the smoke cloud that's enveloping BemBem.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Remember what I said about BemBem's heavy metal guitar?

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Your turn...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Rastafari, Dumaguete-style.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    And they were jammin'...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Hey-o!

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    I think there's something about not distracting the drummer in the band's contract, but not 100% sure...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Sunday morning came fast and it was time to start heading back to Dumaguete. Here's Enchi with all the friendly folks and fans who made the concert possible in Bukidnon.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Time to load up the van for the trip back. BemBem picked up a healthy crate of supplies for the road trip.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    San Mig light or Royal Orange?

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    I think I remember my dentist telling me that this is not a good idea, but I can't absolutely confirm that....

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Pretty exhausting stuff to be a touring band in the Philippines. Raul looks like he could use some rest.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Back on the overnight boat and Safety Inspector BemBem was checking to make sure everyone was well-supplied with cups and, ahem, rum.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    It's absolutely critical that your Scape Hatch is 'obstractions' free.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Mark was confused by the 'scape' options. I mean, which would you choose? 'Escape to Sea' sounds like a safe bet, but maybe the 'Scape Hatch' takes you to the lifeboats? No one could be sure...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The boat from Cagayan to Cebu was decked out with a full karaoke lounge (complete with karaoke lounge band).

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    For some reasons the ceiling in the karaoke lounge was really low. Perhaps to give the 'Scape Hatch' enough room to go between the decks?

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    After watching Enchi on stage all weekend, it was my turn to grab the mic and give my best rendition of 'Country Roads'.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    ...And there was much rejoicing...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    I believe this was the encore: 'My Way'.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    With a room full of famous musicians it was only a matter of time before they took over the stage and gave the crowd something really special.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    After midnight the karaoke lounge was closed (for the sake of the non-musical passengers who wanted to sleep). So we adjourned to the ship's stairwell.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    Mark was the only one still awake at 3 a.m. and more than four days of travel, music, and rum. I think he's a bit confused about why everybody else is asleep...

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    The boat arrived in Cebu's harbor at 8 a.m. the next morning and it was time for the last leg back to Dumaguete.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    BemBem hired a private van (or V-hire) go get us back to Dumaguete from Cebu.

  • Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip

    Enchi in Mindanao: Concert Photos & Band Road Trip
    First stop before heading south: breakfast. Anyways, if you haven't checked out Enchi's music, you can get a download here.
