Americana singer/songwriter Clay Rose is (the front-man of the Boulder alt-country rock band Gasoline Lollipops) has been added as support for Elephant Revival's Two-Night Run in the Ivy Ballroom at Surf Hotel March 29th & 30th.

Gasoline Lollipops lead singer Clay Rose was raised between an outlaw, truck-driving father in the mountains of Colorado and a country song-writing mama in the sticks outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Clay’s distinctive voice, often compared to Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, is deep, gritty and filled with both intensity and truth. Clay’s vulnerable performances paired with his authentic, soulful songwriting and lyrics, make him a "must-see" in Colorado’s music scene and beyond.

Elephant Revival is a unique collection of multi-instrumentalists blending elements of Celtic, Americana, Folk and Indie Art Rock. The band consists of Bonnie Paine (vocals, cello, djembe, washboard and musical saw), Bridget Law (fiddle, vocals), Dango Rose (upright bass, mandolin, vocals), Charlie Rose (banjo, pedal steel, mandolin, vocals) Darren Garvey (drums, percussion, vocals) and Daniel Sproul (guitars, vocals) of Rose Hill Drive. The music they create together is like weather systems meeting in the sky, Bonnie’s warmly haunting voice either merging with the rhythms and melodies of the band or providing a counterpoint and transforming it.

The Surf Hotel has been working on booking Elephant Revival since the summer of 2023, following the group’s announcement to reunite and begin touring after taking a four year hiatus. “When I’m looking at booking bands my goal has always been to diversify the music offerings we present for our community and our visitors. Some choices feel experimental, and others you simply know are great partnerships for the Surf Hotel. Elephant Revival is one of those bands that is just the perfect fit,” said Eddie Sandoval, Concert Manager & Talent Buyer for Surf Hotel. “We are especially excited to showcase this elite group of performers utilizing our recent venue upgrades which now includes an impressive L-Acoustics sound system creating a full-range, immersive and unparalleled audio experience for the listener,” he said.
