Elephant Revival is an experimental Americana outfit from Boulder, Colo.
Brent Berry cut his teeth in the Lawrence music scene circa 2000 with backing from members of local horn band The Secondhands. His debut album "Inland" offered up a seamless platter of roots reggae, rocksteady and folk music. As entertainers for some of Lawrence's chillest parties, Berry and his "Roots Crew" became one of the top local draws before he split for Taos, New Mexico. Nowadays, Brent's back 'round these parts with a brand new band that lays down their own goodtime blend of Afro-Coastal-Americana-Grass. Berry kicks a bass drum while playing a guitar, blowing a harp, and singing or shouting his songs, while Jesse Carr rocks the mando and Suzi Barnes adds some fine vocals and guitar (other Lawrencians often join the crew, too).
