The Elms classic rock sound is "rockingly refreshing," at a time when
pop music and soundtrack artists dominate. ItÕs great to have a traditional
sounding band with the four essentials of rock and roll. The band names
a lot of secular influences that can be heard in their music. They claim
that they are not attempting to create their own genre, but they are just
doing what they do best, rock Ðn- roll.
To me, a truly great rock and roll band has to pass one significant musical
test, that being the rock ballad. The Elms have met this challenge and
the title track, "The Big Surprise" is an awesome ballad with contained
power and energy that builds up to an explosive chorus.
The Elms will be traveling with the Festival Con Dios this summer. Be
sure to check them out, or head over to their website at www.theelms.net.
