"As strong as Red stripe Beer!!!"

They're quite adept at infusing songs like "Moon Beam" and "Soul Jah" with jazz inflection, and there's a pop thread running through all their work that marks them as heir apparent to groups like Third World. As strong as Red Stripe Beer, and just as conducive to a good time. - OffBeat Magazine

...A very good upcoming band which can reach the height of Big Mountain, and lift the US reggae to a more spiritual and higher level! - Free I's Review

"The Elements Review"

Cuts like Gypsy Blood, Sugar Cane, and Don't Worry Now make for a sizzling mix of rock and reggae. - The Beat Vol. 17, No.2

Rock heavy guitars punctuate the optimistic lyrics of the title track.....

A solid American reggae album that successfully blends the efforts of all seven musicians. - Dub Missive Vol. XI, No. 3

From classic roots to the beats of a Dance-Hall style, The Elements are pumping out the reggae rhythms stronger than ever. A flavorful Louisiana roux of cultural influences is the gumbo that makes The Elements one of Louisiana's premiere reggae bands.

The Elements are a truly diverse group put together with members hailing from the southern parishes of Louisiana, the Caribbean, the British Isles, and Latin America. Each member bringing to the mix his own musical influences such as Jazz, Soca, Latin, Rock, R&B, and The Blues. These cultural and musical influences simmer in a Louisiana melting pot that produces a unique Elements style of reggae music.

Since 1983, The Elements have been soaking up the reggae vibes performing with and backing up some of the biggest names in reggae music. The Elements have shared the stage with Steel Pulse, Third World, U-Roy, Yellow Man, The Wailers, and many other reggae greats. Jamming together for over a decade has molded the unique sounds of The Elements into one of the most rootsy of the classic dubs in reggae music today.

The Elements truly love playing and promoting reggae music, and are dedicated in that pursuit. Their experience, along with the cultural and musical diversity they hold, make them a positive force in the local and national reggae arena. It is The Elements' credo to instill in all people an awareness of reggae's important role in the enrichment and development of the human spirit!
