Hundredth Monkey Productions of Madison, WI is bringing Elephant Revival to Madison for their first time with special guests Honey, Summer, & Fall to the High Noon Saloon on Thursday, April 5th, 2012 at 9:30 pm.


Starting the night off right will be Honey, Summer & Fall, a talented foursome that began in the vibrant music scene of Madison, Wisconsin. Dana Starkey and Molly Sternke grew up together in Coon Valley, WI and brought their musical talents to Madison where they teamed up with Ian Vaver and Bobby Gronna. They occupy a musical ground somewhere between folk, bluegrass, blues and whatever else strikes their fancy. With a combination of vocal harmonies and acoustic instrumentation they draw on the sounds of traditional folk and bluegrass, as well as more contemporary and progressive forms of music. They have expanded their sound and played for bigger and bigger audiences, having recently shared the stage with the Infamous Stringdusters. You can catch them all over the great state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Colorado-based acoustic quintet Elephant Revival is embarking on a spring tour including several notable festival appearances. The band made its first stop at eTown, the internationally syndicated, recorded-live Boulder, Colo., radio show, and delivers several showcases at the International Folk Alliance Conference, February 24-26 in Memphis, Tenn. April 5th will mark Elephant Revival's first appearance in Madison, WI at the High Noon Saloon.

Touring behind its sophomore release, BREAK IN THE CLOUDS, Elephant Revival recently received raves from Bluegrass LA, which reported, “Elephant Revival is playing at their very best. The Colorado quintet dabbles in many genres: bluegrass, Americana, psychedelic folk, country, and the list continues. They’ll hit you with five-part harmonies in one song and follow it with a Scottish fiddle instrumental with the next one. Folk ballads, old-time standards or blues jams exploding with strings; Elephant Revival is a refreshing take on the roots music scene.”

Elephant Revival members are: Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe and musical saw); Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola and vocals); Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo and vocals); Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar and vocals); and Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals). The band's name originated when the band's bass player, Dan Rose, would play music in front of an Elephant cage at a Chicago zoo. There were two elephants, and he learned that one of them would be transferred to another zoo. En route on the transfer, the one elephant died. Only a few days later, the Chicago elephant passed away as well. He called his other band mates to say we need to stick together to survive, and the original band name of "Elephant Revival Concept” took shape and was later shortened to "Elephant Revival."
