London’s Rudimental visited the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco on the day their album went to Number 1 on the British chart. Rudimental is a band that gets by very comfortably with a little help from their friends. There are four core members, but it was common to see nine performers on the Regency Ballroom stage. The friends included Ann-Marie and Bridgette Amofah.
The four core members of Rudimental are Piers Agget, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith (Leon Rolle). Among the artists who contribute to the recently released album are Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Ella Eyre and Bobby Womack. While we intend to become familiar with the new material, it will always be the performance skills of the group that will draw us to them. Well, that and our favorite video – “Free.”
