Elevaters: Bringing Classic Soul to a Live Hip Hop Stage

In Videos  /  

Los Angeles based Elevaters have been illuminating stages with their classy live shows for years. The six-man ensemble is one of the most impressive bands to come along in a while. Their dynamic sound is best described as a cross between Earth, Wind, and Fire and J5. In an era where a typical hip hop show consists of a DJs, rappers, and possibly dancers, the live side has been stagnant to say the least. With live percussion, brass, and strings, Elevaters literally elevate the game typically limited to beats and rhymes. Melodic, lyrical, fun, and diverse, Elevaters is a shining example of what it takes to excite an audience and expand the genre. -Raven
