Biography

 

We are Element 47, a Seattle band composed by Mark Silver (guitar), Jay Greer (guitar), Bob Grogan (bass), Tyler Dustin (Lead vocals), James Thrillington (Drums). We’ve been together for around four years, although most of us played in bands for the last 20 years or so. We are primarily a Seattle 90’s Alternative Rock tribute band, although we often like to throw in some songs we just like. We performed in several locations in New York City and our hometown Seattle, and we have been active in organizing fundraising concerts for supporting our fight against Pancreatic Cancer. Our former singer and dearest friend, Matt Bencke, passed away on October 18th, 2017 at the age of 45, after a short battle with this terrible disease. On October 23rd, and for three years afterwards we organized fundraising concerts in his honor, and raised in excess of $250,000 supporting Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. We like to help other people, and do it through our passion.

We are open to performances, and appreciate your support for our cause at www.liveformatt.org.
