Elephant Revival, a neo-acoustic quintet that tours in a vegetable oil powered 1989 school bus, is scheduled to perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 6 as part of The Performing Arts Studio’s Summer Breeze Concert Series.
The free outdoor concert will be held at Lions Park, 450 S. Flood Ave.
“Elephant Revival has become enormously popular in Norman,” said Mark Levy, PAS president-elect and Summer Breeze committee co-chairman. “We are delighted to bring the band back for what promises to be another outstanding concert.”
Elephant Revival’s wide variety of styles include original folk pieces and traditional ballads, as well as Scottish/Celtic fiddle tunes, psychedelic country, indie rock, reggae, 1940s and ‘50s jazz standards and an occasional hip-hop beat.
Band members are Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe, musical saw), Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola, vocals), Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar vocals) and Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals). Individually and collectively, they have performed with such prolific performers as Little Feat, George Clinton, Bela Fleck, Leftover Salmon, John Paul Jones, Yonder Mountain String Band and Michael Franti.
The Summer Breeze Concert Series is supported by grants from the Norman Arts Council and Oklahoma Arts Council, as well as the generous support of many local businesses, organizations and individuals.
