First/Last-Cheers Elephant

July 28, 2014

“Dubbed, “Chew it up, Spit it out, Rock and Roll”, Cheers Elephant is a tight, rootsy, psychedelic poprock quartet from Philadelphia, PA… now SoCal. Digging deep into three part harmonies and pop song arrangements, Cheers has a sound that’ll make your dad’s toe tap, your mom’s hip shake, and your sister’s heart throb. And the live show? Some say it’s something close to the devil, God, or cocaine.”

The SoCal pop-rockers hit up The Smiling Moose on Wednesday for the all-ages EARLY show. My thanks to Jordan del Rosario (Lead Guitar/Vocals) for taking a minute to participate in this edition of First/Last.
