Biography

One of the leading Soca bands in Antigua. The name comes from Little (L/EL) Antigua (A) Crew (Kru). Members include, Tanzania “Tizzy” Sebastian, Lincoln “Blade” Stanislaus Jr., Rohan “Sylky” Hector, Glenroy “Zamba” Richards.
Since its inception, the band has managed through enormous sacrifice, dedication and hard work to become one of Antigua and Barbuda’s most popular and sought after musical entities.

For the first seven years of their existence the band confined themselves mostly to the hotel and tourist circuits. During which time they also had several local hit recordings with songs like “We want more Money”, “Right Time For Love”, “Helikopta”, “Ring Ting”, “Turn Out The Lights”, to name a few.

In early 1998, the guys decided to re-commit themselves to their recordings. So with a new twist to their name (EL-A-KRU), the new Kru launched their new sound and new album “LETHAL” in June that year.

From this album came the mega hit “Lethal Batty”. It was easily one of the biggest soca hits anywhere that year and well into 1999. It officially landed the Kru on the regional and international music scene in a major way.
El-A-Kru performed in the “Soca Mecca” that is Trinidad and Tobago carnival in 1999. Over a period of 28 days the kru performed in 19 shows and was the band on the road for Peter Minshall and his “Lost Tribe” 1999. Especially rewarding was the fact that the bands lead vocalist Byke became the first Antiguan to make the Monarch finals in Trinidad & Tobago.
