The Elements will return to the Encinitas Relay for Life Aug. 6
The Elements band members relaunched their website with a new domain name, TheElements.band, on July 21.
The launch follows the teenage rock band’s first private party performance on July 10 at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon in Carlsbad where they entertained over 100 guests.
“We’ve been getting asked to perform a lot more this past year. So, I thought we needed a domain name that was easy to remember,” said Dylan Herrera, The Elements drummer. Herrera created the original website, Lmntsfive.wix.com/the-elements, a year ago and recently updated it with a new “.band” domain name along with new videos, biographies, photos and press.
“I thought it was so cool that there are new domain extensions available now, and dot band was perfect.”
Playing cover songs by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Fray, Fitz and The Tantrums, The Killers, The Cult and more, The Elements have been booking gigs on their own since January of 2015. This past year, The Elements performance schedule has grown with the addition of the Encinitas Highway 101 Main Street Association’s Fall and Spring Street Fairs; Carlsbad Causes for Community, aka C3, events and fundraisers: C3 Anniversary Party, Carlsbad Street Fair, Halloween in the Village, Winter Fancy Fundraiser, Spring Art Bash, and Scavenger Hunt; and The American Cancer Society’s Encinitas Relay for Life.
“We love when the Elements perform at our C3 nonprofit events,” said Deb Ferraro, C3 Founder. “Our events serve people of all ages and The Elements bring an amazing energy that is enjoyed by both kids and adults. Their talent and passion for music shines through and is contagious to all who see them perform!”
Back by popular demand, The Elements will return to the Encinitas Relay for Life at the San Dieguito High School Academy track on Saturday, Aug. 6. “Everyone on the committee kept telling me to make sure I get The Elements to come back,” said Nick Johnston, one of the event organizers.
The Elements band was formed in March of 2014 by The Rockademy, a music school in Solana Beach. The Rockademy provides many performance opportunities and is supportive of the gigs The Elements get on their own.
All four band members are students in the San Dieguito Unified School District. In the Fall, Herrera and Julian Boyer, lead vocalist, will be sophomores at San Dieguito High School Academy; Granger Pasko, bassist, will attend Torrey Pines High School as a freshman, and Ryan Beck, guitarist, will attend Canyon Crest Academy as a freshman.
