Colorado-based quintet Elephant Revival will bring its layered, multi-dimensional sound to the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on March 30.

Elephant Revival’s sound is tough to classify through the lens of a single genre. The band, made up of musicians and singers who play multiple instruments, can emit a variety of tones and sounds ranging from folk to bluegrass, jazz, alternative and rock, just to name a few.

The band will primarily be performing tracks off their new album, “Petals”, when they take the stage at the Coach House. According to the band’s double bass, mandolin and banjo player Dango Rose, the new album will be Elephant Revival’s most ambitious yet in terms of musicianship.

The band included parts for cello, octave fiddle, and pedal steel guitar into their arrangements on “Petals”, which gives the record a distinct sound.

“Compositionally, (the new album) is much more elevated … We allow the music to take us there. We follow the music and let the sound guide the way,” Rose said.

In addition to playing songs off “Petals”, Elephant Revival will be performing tracks off previous records, according to Rose.

Tickets for Elephant Revival are $18.

The Coach House is located at 33157 Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano. For tickets and more information, call 949.496.8930 or visit
