We're a power trio with Guitar, Stand Up Bass, Drums, and Vocals... doing our own style of CowPunkPsychobilly. The Elixirs are quickly gaining a big following for our high energy live shows. Don't expect to hear many covers, The Elixirs write and perform thier own brand of original American music.
The rock bands call us a surf band, the surf bands call us a rock band.....we are the HEAVIES!!!
BIG drums-FAT bass-STINGING guitars...check us out and be overcome by a tsunami of sound! Christmas 1999: Jason and I were talking about music and got on the subject of surf-instro and both expressed interest in playing it. Three months later we started getting together at his place and learned about 15-20 songs with me playing rhythm and him on lead. We looked for about 18 months for a drummer and bass player with no luck. Jay knew Jim from some job sites they had worked at and asked him to play drums with us. The 3 of us started practicing regularly in the spring of '02 in Jim's parents' garage while we kept looking for a bass player. Jim's Dad thought the stuff we were playing sounded great and started learning the bass lines. We played our first "show" labor day weekend 2002 at a 3-band birthday party as a 4-piece. Two months later, his dad passed the bass duties on to Jim's brother, who moved to California and soon the revolving door started. After 4 years and 7 different bass players we decided to become a 3 piece and Jay and I switch between bass and guitar during sets.
