“Brought together by a sense of purpose seventeen years ago, Elephant Revival has united people with its music.”-Westword

Elephant Revival says “After all the fun and enthusiasm we experienced there last year we cannot wait to make some summertime cliffside music on the St. Vrain River again.”

Here is a recent ‘behind the scenes’ clip of the band playing ‘Hello you who...’ You will hear this song and many others old and new at their upcoming show and some surprise guests as well.

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.

“Playing Planet Bluegrass is a very special show for us; it’s a celebration of the natural landscape and a dance with our friends who share our love for music.”
