"Mario's Place Review"

ELEMENTS do an amazing job! They have performed for me over 20 times in the past 1 1/2 years. They have always proven to be punctual and reliable, musically flexible with incredible from slow mellow to hip incredible energy start to finish. The band is consistently professional and knows how to keep things moving throughout the night without ever letting up! They are all so talented, and their music adds even more style and fun to my restaurant. I recommend ELEMENTS to perform at any venue small to large!

ELEMENTS

Formed by visionary drummer/percussionist, Gary “Big Dog” Stanionis, ELEMENTS is quickly becoming one of the hottest contemporary Jazz/R&B bands performing today.

ELEMENTS is made up of some of the most talented and versatile musicians in California. ELEMENTS has created an original style and sound that is all their own. Fusing Traditional Jazz, R&B, Latin and Brazilian Rhythms to Funk and Soul. From their silky smooth rhythm section to their tight, punchy horn section, ELEMENTS is sure to get you moving! ELEMENTS feature a vocalist on select songs, to add another dimension to the band.

Gary’s debut album with ELEMENTS is called “Takin’ it Back” and
it was released in the summer of 2008. It was Gary’s debut album as Producer and ELEMENTS debut album as a band. Gary’s commitment to producing high quality music is exceptional, and every track reflects that.

Some of the artists the band and its members have performed with include: Flora Purim (Brazilian legend), Aretha Franklin, Arturo Sandoval, David Garfield, Tito Puente, Airto Moreira, Bonnie Raite, Jackiem Joyner and Ellis Marsalis.

Festivals and Tours include: The Catalina Island Jazz Trax Festival, Big Bear Jazz Trax Festival, a USO European tour, Luxembourg Jazz Festival, T.R.A.P Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Warped Tour, Gardena Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, San Diego Jazz Festival, Jazz Fest West and the famed Montreaux Jazz Festival.
