The Edi Johnston Bit is not just a player of songs, but putting them alongside some typical English silliness too.
Props, Jokes, Quizzes, Audience participation, Bingo etc all add up to a daft experience going beyond just singing some songs. Taking inspiration from Morecambe & Wise, Flight of the Conchords and Tim Vine alongside Old School Hiphop and Pop, The EJ Bit wants to play a bunch of silly tunes alongside a box full of bad jokes & props to ensure a memorable experience rather than just listening.
Having played a bunch of gigs with other bands at places like Glastonbury, Shambala & Reading Festivals, Edi had always shared a stage with other really talented musicians. But when his bands finally finished in 2013, Edi took a year off from performing before being bought a Ukulele by his children for Father’s Day and starting to write & perform again.
The Edi Johnston Bit is a chance to catch up with the daftness of life, put aside the thoughts of normality, and smirk your way through a set of songs and stuff designed solely to make you giggle & grin.
