a different Element

a different Element


A DIFFERENT ELEMENT is a mixture of indie, rock, reggae, and acoustic. We are not a heavy rock band. Our music will make the crowd want to move and dance and just relax and have a great time! We create a very fun and entertaining atmosphere. Our music is suitable for all ages. Clean lyrics.


a different Element was created when Adam and Zack decided to start a project and started writing music together. They decided they wanted to take it to the next level and perform live shows and cut a record. We were going to play live shows with just the two of us and hopefully a drummer would find us. Enter Eric. Eric has been dropping beats on the drums for many years and came to us through a friend. He fit in well with the band from the get go. a different Element played their first show at a coffee shop on May 1st, 2009 and have played many more shows since. We have played shows with over 300 people. We have shared the stage with many great bands. When we sat down and started to write music we wanted to create music that no one has ever heard. We wanted it to be fun music that got the crowd moving and having a good time. We were influenced by bands like the Beatles, John Lennon, Bob Marley, State Radio, Pink Floyd, Jack Johnson, Sublime, Ben Harper, Brett Dennon, Built to Spill, Wilco, Incubus, Modest Mouse, Rebelution, 311, Death Cab for Cutie and many other great and influential bands.


We just recently released our first full length album. It is self titled and has 8 songs.

Set List

We can play a set that last 40 minutes or we can play a set with cover songs and play for 3 hours. We are flexible with our set lists. We like to play our own music but realize that people love to hear covers. We always have our own twist when we play covers. Some of the bands that we cover include: Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, Cary Brothers, Beatles, Death Cab for Cutie, Royal Bliss, Coldplay and many more.
