"... The Interstellar Elevators, headed by the infamous local Billy Richling, claims to have been together "since the Civil War Reconstruction era.
With perfectly bneded sound- covering several genres with the most unique set of instrumental accompaniments- The Interstellar Elevators put on a show that is almost unbelievable.
The band members say they pull their inspiration from virtually anything, referencing "chocolate pretzels and water bottle caps" as a few, along with "the country of Africa."
The Elevators had a great show last week on February 5th at Toquet Hall, where a large number of local fans loyally returned to see them perform..." - Weston Forum

Bio

Emerging from the Earth’s womb in gold-coated placenta in 2009, the Weston, CT-based musical collective known as The Interstellar Elevators has presented itself in the buff to audiences with a hybrid of jazz, funk and hip-hop smoother than a baby’s bottom. With their recent discovery of the “world wide web,” Interstellar has reinterpreted Bill Gates’ intended purpose for the Internet, using it to advertise their superfly performances instead of pornography. Frontman Billy Rodriguez-Lopez has built his ensemble from the ground up as the band’s MC, guitarist, and turntable wizard, in addition to being head coordinator and songwriter. Interstellar’s instrumentation, divided between its six members, includes multiple saxophones, synthesizers, organs, turntables, bongos, maracas, electronic drums, a djembe, and various assorted rubber duckies, on top of guitars, bass, and drums. Most recently, they’ve completed recording sessions in their vicarious homeplace of Brooklyn, New York. On September 10th, they released their first EP, “Paper on Plastic,” containing five original songs concocted by Rodriguez-Lopez concerning the hardships of a developing sexuality, and its obstruction of the difficult world of being an upper-class white male in America. “Paper on Plastic” is now available on iTunes, and has allegedly won the hearts of grandmothers and puppies from Connecticut to the Golden Coast.
