Acoustic Acts - Element 78 Unplugged and E78 Acoustic Trio

Joe and Derrick play out as an acoustic duo at clubs and private events. They play a lot of the songs the full band plays, but also some other tracks that are more suited for a stripped down acoustic set. Joe sings and plays percussion, and Derrick sings backup and plays rhythm and lead acoustic guitar. Check out our video of some highlights from one of our shows at Waxy's in Foxboro, and take a look at our songlist. If you're interested in hiring the unplugged version of Element 78, contact us at

E78 Acoustic Trio

Element 78 is also available as an acoustic trio consisting of Joe on vocals, Derrick on guitar and loop station rhythm guitar, and John on percussion.  We also play with Joe singing and playing djembe (percussion), Derrick playing guitar/loop station, and Greg playing bass.   The acoustic trio has a lot of the vibe, excitement, and danceability of the full band without the the volume, and a much smaller stage footprint.  Take a look at our highlight video below.
