Lil' Elephant plays the grooviest, dirtiest, most baddest funk in all of the land. Straight out of their home in West Oakland, these lads are sure to bring the ruckus with a unique and eclectic blend of rock, funk, and rap. Get down, get up, get whatever you want--they don't care as long as you're dancing!
Nat Osborn, "the mastermind behind the suitably named Nat Osborn Band, writes smart, punchy tunes that blend old-school Gershwin-era songcraft with decidedly modern sensibilities." - Popdose. The seven-piece band, flanked by a powerful three piece horn section, takes the best elements of soul, funk, indie-rock, and jazz and weaves them around Osborn's truly infectious and clever songs. The band has recently returned from a three month stint in Europe supporting their April 2015 self-titled EP release on Rope-A-Dope Records.
Musical destiny had its roots in Jonny Zywiciel's youngest years. He began banging on his family's grand piano as soon as he learned how to walk, and would sit there for hours, captivated, creating melodies and singing along as best he could. He spent his youth listening to pop and rock music, which finally prompted him to pick up a guitar at age 13. He played in many different bands and acts throughout his middle and high school years, headlining the historic Bottom of the Hill club in San Francisco, The Starry Plough in Berkeley (where Journey got their start) while honing his skills as a guitarist and songwriter. Inspired heavily by Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and John Mayer, Jonny articulates his vision as to “Tour the world, write timeless songs with lyrical guitar work, punctuated by captivating chords and unforgettable melodies.”
