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!
