Background:

The Elevators feature singer/guitarist Steve "B.B." Payne, who describes his guitar style as an attempt to blend the soulfulness of B.B. King and the aggressiveness of Stevie Ray Vaughan. He's performed with Jonathan Gale, Steve Schuffman, the Renegade Band, and tenor-sax legend Taco Davis.

Irwin Haas (vocals, sax) has a jazz performance degree from Berklee College of Music and has played with the Siers Brothers and the Automatics. Paul "Paulie" Cougill (keyboards) also plays with Party Quake, having previously been with the Eve Selis band, the Siers Brothers, and Hot Monkey Love.

Dave "Cool Breeze" Coats (drums, vocals) spent around ten years with the Crawlin' King Snakes. Bassist Emo has also played with Beyond Blue and Sweet Blue Onion featuring Johnny Mannion.

The Elevators also play as the Blues Brokers, for blues gigs, with the same players in both bands.
