The 5th Elephant (aka T5E) is a one-stop-shop grunge/hard/alternative rock cover band combing acoustic & electric guitars. T5E rocks songs from the 1990's, 2000's and today. Based in Portland, OR, T5E prides itself on faithfully recreating the sounds of your favorite rock bands from the 1990's 'till now.
This group of young musicians regularly performs in the Portland and Seattle metro areas. Although young, each musician has decades of stage and studio experience and have served as the headliners for many dozens of nightclubs across the US – in addition to performing at weddings, festivals, TV stations, parties, and corporate events. In total, The 5th Elephant boasts more than 100 years of stage and studio experience.
With influences from Alice in Chains, Tool, Stone Temple Pilots to Rage Against the Machine, Weezer, and the Pixies, The 5th Elephant combines distorted and clean guitars, multiple vocal harmonies, and an awesome light show in every performance.
In addition to a full light show, The 5th Elephant can provide a sound system (capable of covering a medium sized room or small ball room) and sound technician.
The T5E members like to say that they don't take themselves seriously, they take their music and performance seriously. Don't be mistaken, T5E strives to make every performance memorable. Additionally, T5E offers guaranteed satisfaction, excellent communication, a high degree of flexibility, and an on-time guarantee.
"The 5th Elephant was incredibly easy to work with from day one of the booking process. They present themselves professionally and their specialized material definitely allows them to stand apart from more traditional cover acts. Additionally, the band's ability to respond quickly to change and be flexible to client requests has made them a pleasure to work with on multiple events. The 5th Elephat was an integral part of the success of the inaugural 2012 Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half Marathon and we look forward to hiring them again for future events."

The 5th Elephant emerged on our sleepy little town and got the place rolling in no time flat. There was a lot of hype about this band coming to our town and the bar owners here were anxious to book with The 5th Elephant. This band is a class act, set up quickly, dealt with our bars agents in a professional manner, and consistently put on great performances. The cover songs, you'd never guess, didn't come straight from the original band. This band has booked twice already in Hardtails, and we will book them again and again here and in any venue I work with in coming months. A special thanks to T5E for throwing such great shows in our venue!
