Elvice (pronounced "Elvis") Mwenematale is a relative newcomer to the Boise music scene—but with his set at The Reef on March 28, he clearly isn't new to music. Between Mwenematale's light, assured vocals and his playful stage presence, the young African emigre exuded the confidence of a natural performer. His performance was complemented by the propulsive rhythms and fluid, melodic guitar and keyboard solos of local African-reggae-funk band Afrosonics, which had played Treefort's Main Stage earlier that afternoon. 

Elvice isn't the king but if he keeps delivering performances like this one, he could be a contender for the crown.
