Colorado-based folk group Elephant Revival plays the third show in The Bud Light Underground Sound concert series presented by The Dusty Boot on Sunday, October 3 at 7:30pm at the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) in Beaver Creek.

Originally from Nederland, Elephant Revival is now a local favorite in the music festival scene and will play the VPAC for the first time on Sunday. Each Elephant possesses remarkable and uncanny vocal abilities which can be heard during every live performance. Individual group members also carry a vast amount of instrumental talent playing the washboard, musical saw, banjo, upright bass, fiddle and more.

Touring in a bus fueled by vegetable oil, Elephant Revival has played at festivals, clubs, house concerts and theaters from the Rockies to the Ozarks and all points in between. The five-piece band's live show features a unique approach to acoustic music fusing folk, funk, Newgrass, Celtic and gypsy with hip-hop and reggae. Dancing shoes are a must when attending an Elephant Revival show.

Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident calls Elephant Revival, “a magical blend of melodies and rhythms with their roots in the past and their hearts in the future.”

The Elephant Revival show is a part of the Bud Light Underground concert series presented by The Dusty Boot. Beaver Creek's Dusty Boot restaurant is offering a three-course dinner for two plus two tickets to the Elephant Revival concert for $50.

Tickets for Elephant Revival are $15 and are available online at www.vilarpac.org, by calling 970.845.TIXS (8497) or in person at the box office in Beaver Creek.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information on the Vail Valley Foundation, visit www.vvf.org.
