Emcees Ricky Radar and Bearcat have offered different versions of Eyes of the Elders (EOE) since the group first started in 2004, but its latest incarnation, backed by drummer Jacob Gresham, guitarist and vocalist Boss Jones, and bassist Jason Pentecost has remained intact since 2008, with the addition of Majikai on keys and MPC in 2012. “Amps 11″ Magazine described them as “some of the dopest hip hop in the southeast,” and Mike Cooper II of “BallerStatus” and “The Hiphop Caucas” fame, said that EOE is “the sort of hip hop that you’d think the klingons would be bumping in a future century. . . a noise far ahead of it’s time.”

Eyes of the Elders has performed at festivals such as the French Broad River Festival, Scribble jam, Invisible Children, Off the Grid, and Conscious Vibes and have supported acts such as KRS 1, Rehab, Warren G., and Sole. Able to both move a crowd’s feet and their mind, EOE remains an underground force that is gaining momentum by the day. Combining poignant song-writing and lyricism with a live band that is “just as likely to kick out a banjo riff as a big bass bumper, EOE’s backpack-’n’-a-sack wraps should be on more shoulders than Jansport right about now.” – Tim Davis, “Creative Loafing Magazine”
