"Element 55 is an innovative cutting edge band."

Element 55 is an innovative cutting edge band. The future of rock and roll. Matt's vocals are unlike any that I have ever heard before. Along with the voice comes a showman that is able to read and control a crowd. Jonathan and BJ have a partnership. Their guitar tones are complimentary of each other and work in seamless harmony. The bass master Buddah has a thunderous tone and an equally entertaining presence on stage. George the anchor of the group is a metronome. He is a solid drummer with impeccable timing and funk deep down in his sole.
Having them in the studio is a pleasure. They are professionals of the highest caliber. The energy they project on stage is the same energy they put in to every song and every interview.
Element 55 you guys ROCK!!!

Element 55 is Proudly Sponsored by Jagermeister

Cutting through the confines and constricts of a small town, Element 55 has made a name for itself the hard way. Getting together in 2003, everyone quickly discovered that Element 55 could make their own mark. Going through a few lineup changes in the beginning, primarily with vocals, once established, the music came together and Element 55 began to establish itself as a powerful, emotional and creative movement.

Element 55 has distinguished itself clearly as an expression of what is missing. Something a little old school but fresh; Today�s rock with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of what is defined as Hard Rock.

Element 55 takes its inspiration from the varied backgrounds that make up its repertoire.

Cadillac Dan - Guitar - More on Dan to come.

Jonathan - Guitar - Guitarist, whose way of looking at how the music should be something that makes you not be the same as everyone else, allows for the uniqueness in his writing to elevate the music and distinguish Element 55 as a unique expression amongst its peers. Always keeps an eye on things.

Coming Soon - Vocals -

Alan - Bass - Dubbed "buddah" by too many and for too many reasons, Alan has been in the business for many years and brings a solid background and old school familiarity to Element 55. Bringing with him years of experience and knowledge, Alan is the base of the bass for Element 55. Don�t forget to rub his belly for good luck.

George – Drums – The newest member of the band George brings a fresh new perspective to our sound with an open mind and a strong determination. George has a traditional background and shares the same goals that Element 55 has always placed in the forefront, to become the source that everyone can use to have a good time

Coined as a straight Hard Rock band Element 55 shares their sound with Nickleback, Godsmack, and Tool in creating an atmosphere that rings of basic, uncolored in your face music. Take it home. Tell your friends. Come visit and stay a while.
