Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe, musical saw and stomp box).  Her Atherical voice matches the gentle vibrations of her saw and her natural rhythms captivate. Bonnie brings out the best of her roots of Oklahoma, but makes her home in Colorado.

Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals).

After having had the pleasure of meeting Bridget a few times I found out an interesting fact about her. Bridget was a Waldorf student in her youth.  Having had my own children experience this freedom of expression, it is clear to me the ease which she shares her strong artistic talent. Bridget is a local Coloradoan and still makes it her home.

Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola, vocals) A very talented musician that converted me into rethinking the contribution of a banjo.

Sage was kind enough to show us his modified backless banjo. He started playing music like a lot of youth as a bit of a rebellion, but found his passion and career there.

Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo, vocals)

Any one of the talented Elephant Revival gang can step up to the mic and be a lead singer, but Dango was the first I saw bust a move on stage. They’re going to love him in Ireland.

Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar, vocals) Daniel is a gentle soul with a great sense of humor.

The show opened with a short blessing from a flute made of horn and a crystal bowl. The show had a feeling of celebration of arts and music.

Also, the Ogden show was accessorized with a couple hanging around from the ceiling.
