Elementree Livity Project, The Ohms, Shrub, Tropidelic, Sassafraz, Peridoni, Alex Hall’s Figurehead, Jah Sol, Aliver Hall, Junya Be, The Mucklebuck, R.O.A.R., Mr. Brown’s Mysterious Sounds and The Almighty Get Down are just a handful of the bands on the most stacked lineup in Ohmstead History!!! Known for being the longest running festival in Southwest Ohio, Ohmstead 2014 is the best bang for your buck that you will find all year long.
The boys of ELP continue to stay busy with recent performances at Rootwire Transformational Arts Festival, FreeForAll Festival and the Woodlands Tavern to name a few.
Aside from a busy performance schedule, the band has completed all tracking for their upcoming , five track EP release. In its final mixing/mastering stages, the first official recording will be available for purchase very soon!!
With all efforts being focused on hosting Ohmstead 2014, ELP plans to take a few weeks off to focus on their songwriting as they wrap up the festival season. Following Ohmstead, the next big show is Resonance Music and Arts Festival on October 2nd at the legendary Frontier Ranch in Pataskula, Ohio.
Be sure to spread the message of Livity in your daily lives and you will be rewarded beyond your expectations. The band thrives on this concept of love and believe that is sorely needed in this troubled world that we live in today.
Don’t forget to purchase your Ohmstead tickets as soon as possible and stay tuned for more big news from Elementree Livity Project by texting the word, “LOVE” to 24587. Be blessed!!!
It’s pretty hard to believe that the five of us have only been playing shows together as Elementree Livity Project for just one year. We decided that it was important to start a blog that would help us to capture the special moments that have happened to our musical family while keeping our extended family of fans in the proverbial “know”. This past weekend marked the one year anniversary show which was, ironically, the same event. That event was the Stanley’s Fourth Annual Reggae Fest featuring local powerhouse reggae bands Know Prisoners, The All Star Jammerz and The Cliftones alongside ELP. The band has already had the honor of sharing the stage with the likes of The Wailers, Everton Blender, Warrior King, Keller Williams, Papadosio and The Revivalists to name a few. As the festival season swings in to high gear, keep your eyes out for ELP at such festivals as FreeForAll Fest, Rootwire, Resonance as well as our very own festival, Ohmstead!!!
Currently, the band is working hard on the completion of their very first release from the studio. The tracking is nearly complete and then we will be in the mixing and mastering stages. The band is hopeful for a release prior to Ohmstead Music Festival which takes place August 22-24. Tickets for the festival can be purchased here.
In the meantime, here is the most recent review of the band for everyone to enjoy. Also, please swing on by the Facebook page to give us a like and share with your friends and family as well. We wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for all of the beautiful fans that have encouraged us from the beginning. Thank you all for making our first year so memorable.
Namaste! Livity! One Love!!!
PHOTOS FROM THIS YEAR:
From the land of the seven hills, is born a new breed of sound, a melting pot of reggae rhythms, hip hop grooves, & blistering jams. In an Ohio river town, rich with history of steamboats and pork production; and mostly known for it’s chili, micro brews, sports, & ice cream; Elementree Livity Project is carving out a space all its own.
Since hitting the stage for the first time in June of 2013, Livity has already gladly shared the stage with the likes of The Original Wailers, Warrior King, Everton Blender, The Luminaries, Tropidelic, Shrub, The Cliftones, Roots of a Rebellion, Sensamotion, & Baoku Moses & The Afrobeat Image Band. And they’re just getting started….
Elementree Livity Project brings to the stage a positive, conscious message, an infectious groove, and irresistible melodies. The band is comprised of David “Elementree” Danforth (Vocals & Guitar), Brandon “Bean” Bastin (Lead Guitar & Vocals), Stephen Buttree (Sax, Keys, & Vocals), Michael Walker (Bass), & Cisco Hughes (Drums).
The goal is simple; to bring the message of Livity to the masses. The Livity Project is about spreading positive vibes; a message of peace, harmony, & acceptance for all people; it is a message of love & understanding for all. Peace and one love!
