There’s nothing like starting off a Monday with some incredible music, am I right? Today I was scrolling through Facebook and a band called The Elovaters (formerly known as The Cornerstone) popped up and after hearing their song “Sunshine”, I became absolutely obsessed.
The band is from the Boston area, according to their Facebook page they were influenced by Sublime and Bob Marley, which you can definitely hear through their music.
The Elovaters are Reggae/Rock/Funk band hailing from Boston, Massachusetts. The band is fronted by lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist Jackson Wetherbee who has toured internationally. The Elovaters also feature musicians formerly of New England Music Award winning bands; The Aldous Collins Band and Last Call. The sound is similar to that of UB40, The Police, Sublime and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their show is fun, energetic and has festive crowds dancing, grooving, and singing along.They have supporting headliners such as Kool and The Gang, Akon, Ballyhoo, Stick Figure, Collie Buddz, Trombone Shorty, The Movement, New Kingston, and Galactic.
So I would suggest that you check them out while they are on tour now because eventually these guys will be filling up concert venues across the country. There is no doubt in my mind about that.
Real question though, is it possible to be in a bad mood when you listen to reggae music?
I think that right now we could all use more music like this!
