Elana J and The Grinders is a New York City based rock band made up of Elana J, Natalie Tenenbaum, Leanne Bowes, and Andrew Harts. The band is quickly gaining popularity in the New York rock scene. Previous performance highlights include, Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, Arlene’s Grocery,The Bowery Electric, The Studio at Webster Hall, headlining at The Bitter End, Pianos NYC, The Marlin Room at Webster Hall, and Highline Ballroom.

The Band is currently completing their second EP, and has has recently joined forces with Sbe's, The Redbury, to create their newest music video out in November. EJG is currently seeking management.
