The Elect's Musical Inspirations :
The Allman Brothers
The Black Crowe's
What if Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, and John Prine took turns fronting the Allman Brothers Band on one of their jazzier nights with special guests from the Grateful Dead and The Band filling in? That's The Elect! An experienced, musically talented six piece Jam/Rock Band based out of the Midwest - Indiana. The Elect is an electrifying, soulful band with a spicy southern draw that delivers a musical punch! Unique Midwestern Rock n' Roll with an acoustic sting that leaves the audience and listeners thirsting for another sip. The sound breaks the traditional mold of today's Jam/Rock Bands by combining the best of multiple genres including the story-telling of folk, the heart of blues, and the high-energy of Rock n' Roll. The Elect creates an electrifying, feel-good, moving jam experience that will not be forgotten. Local newspaper publications, radio, television networks, and Indie and Major Record companies have all recognized the unique sound, feel, and musicianship of The-Elect.
The Elect has played many large Midwestern upscale venues including, but not limited to: The Vogue, The Patio, Rathskeller, Phoenix Hill Tavern, Bill Monroe Music Park, The Music Mill and much more. The Elect has also performed concerts and festivals with the following regional and national acts:
