Say Cheese!

Elixir is a musical group that plays American music of the 1800's and original compositions.
Taking Folk, Country, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Reggae, and you name it!
Elixir redefines our ancestor's music to bring it alive for today's audiences.


Coming together to play some Dan Emmett songs at the annual Dan Emmett Music and Arts Festival honoring the writer of "Dixie", the members of Elixir found a new sound and a new voice for classic American music of the 1800's. What was to be a one time project evolved into full time enjoyment.
 


Combining three talented singer- multi- instrumentalist-arrangers with a storehouse of material from immortal writers such as Stephen Foster and Dan Emmett as well as a few original songs that bring back the feeling of the era, Mike and Chris Petee and Gerry Rensel have redefined the classics and made them their own. What they have created is an Elixir for the ears.


By adding a spoonful of tasty guitar playing and a heaping sized helping of vocal harmony and a pinch of humor and history, Elixir's live show brings to mind what "Crosby Stills and Nash", "The Mills Brothers", "Peter, Paul & Mary" or "Alabama" might have sounded like in the 1800's.
