Elephant Gun

10v5_localamp_elephantgunThrough open mics and word of mouth, Elephantgun have made a substantial name for themselves as one of the more eclectic bands on the Space Coast.

Comprised of Trevor Prince on guitar and vocals, David Pastorius on bass, and Tom Van Dyke on drums, Elephantgun offers a sound laden with a Southern punk/funk feel.  As diverse as they are many, their influences, from the Allman Brothers and Kings of Leon to Ginger Baker and Mother Hips, are just a few voices Elephantgun channel through their original instrumentation. You may hear some covers hidden within a melody that may contain some CCR, Taj Mahal, or Primus.

The men of Elephantgun are all locals stemming from other bands (Local 518; Rex Goliath; Big Orange Nitty Gritty) whose drive and original approach help create an atmosphere of rare adventure and surprise. So this holiday season, treat yourself to a band who’ll make you feel like it’s Christmas every day.
