IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING THE FUTURE OF ELI:

As you might've seen, our most recent performance at BoonTunes was announced as our last one before we take a hiatus. We have some good and bad news on that subject matter. Bad news, ELI as it has been known for roughly the last 5 years is done. The good news on the subject, is that overall brand of ELI will go through a slight redesign and continue on following a few changing members. In the coming weeks and months, we will be working hard to tweak the ELI image into something that more represents the band's new identity. We are sad to announce we will be going through this process without our guitarist/singer Paul Machado due to personal differences. We still encourage you to follow his solo music page and show his talent the love and appreciation it deserves. Best of luck goes to him.

In the meantime, the remaining shows we have listed WILL be honored. Conor and Mike will perform them with temporary fill-ins. We still encourage you to come out and enjoy some ELI tunes you love along with some other really good bands on some of the bills.

We appreciate everyone who has been with us to this point, and we hope you bear with us as we begin to unravel the next iteration of ELI!




Check out some of our music! The first track is off of "Heroes", the second track is off of "Villains" (both of which are available now on CD Baby), and the third is off of "My Name Is" which is also currently available! More songs can be found on the "Music" page and short bios of the members are found below


Paul Machado

Guitarist

As well as bringing an aura of mystery to the left side of the stage, Paul also introduces a classic rock and grunge style to the guitars and vocals of the band.

Michael Sliker

Drummer

Drummer

Despite being the only member who doesn't sing Mike has the energy of a frontman trapped behind the drum set, and provides a dash of metal and intensity to the sound of the trio.

Conor Schaar

Bassist

Bassist

Assertively commanding the right side of the stage, Conor brings an aggressive punk/rock vibe to his bass melodies in the rhythm section as well as the vocals.
