Covering a wide variety of styles, Elder Grown brings a fantastic energy to the stage with a mix of Rock, Funk, Reggae, and Hip Hop! There is no better teammates than a good crowd!
Original Members of Elder Grown are Paul, John, and Josh Hoffman. We have been playing music together for the last few years, and grew up watching our cousins, father, uncles, grandparents, friends etc play music.
Music is the most influential aspect of our lives and is the catalyst with which we develop, control, expand and explore the simple straight forward ideas of Life, Love, Peace, and Music.
We are originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico and Denver, Colorado and were lucky enough to be raised around a very loving, caring, and talented family along side wonderful friends.
With our music we seek to represent that which all these amazing people in our lives have instilled within each of us. This fact is best represented by the story of the decision of our band name.
We came to the idea of the band name Elder Grown, because Elder is the maiden name of the Hoffman boy's late Grandmother Marion Elder Hoffman, (born and raised in Australia, Cheers to the family in WA).
She stood as the epitome of how we live our lives and what we seek to represent with our music. So it was a very easy decision to call ourselves Elder Grown, because that is exactly what we are,
and naturally we can be nothing more, and nothing less. Thanks to all who support our endeavor into a life of music. Thanks for listening, thanks for dancing, and most of all thanks for inspiring!
Music for the people, by the people!
Playing whenever, where ever, for whatever! We hope to use our music to promote positive messages! We love to play though, and will do so for the sake of the sounds.
