Comments: I saw this band recently in Springfield and they are without a doubt one of the better bands I have seen in quite some time. They get the crowds attention and don't let go untill the last note is played.
Music types: Rap, Funk
Description:
Hip-Hop funk/jam style. Alternative Rap and Underground Hip-Hop. Very unique band. All original music. Funky and somewhat ambient sound that is created is fresh and entertaining. "Everything we write is rhythm-oriented; it’s centered around the fundamentals of classic hip-hop. And built around that base, you’ll hear layers of funk, reggae, rock, and jazz, written with both heart and precision"


Band Members:
Band members consist of Opie Hicks, singer/emcee. From Memphis, Tennessee. Toured with Everlast in 1998 and Vanilla Ice in 1999. Signed by Bad Boy Records in 1999. Formed Opie Hicks & The Elements in February 2003. He is backed by an excellant group of sensational live musicians which include lead guitarest John Anno, 22, formerly of the Springfield, Missouri hip-hop group Ovaflow, St. Louis bassist Nick Archambault, 21, and Springfield drummer Richie Holland, 24, former drummer of rock and roll group Fall Before Winter. With all the talented musicians in place Hicks believes "It's just a matter of time before we take the music world by storm"
