Linus Tate is a Cincinnati, Ohio based trio featuring Alex Poteet on guitar/vocals, Noah Cope on bass/vocals, and Shawn Elsbernd on drums/percussion. The band was founded in 2015 after expanding on an acoustic duo that Alex and bassist Noah Cope assembled in 2014. The band was formed around the concept of combining musicianship and great pop/rock covers mixed with a live tribute to amazing songwriters old & new such as Jackson Browne, The Beatles, Glen Campbell, Ray LaMontagne, Hozier, John Mayer, Eric Clapton and more. 

The band combines these ideas to create a unique, one-of-a-kind live experience for audiences of all ages. You can find Linus Tate playing clubs, breweries, restaurants, and special events nearly everywhere in the southern Ohio/Tri-State region. Some of those include events for the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, Oxford Wine & Craft Beer Festival, Hamilton RiversEdge Concert Series, City of Fairfield "Groovin' On The Green" Concerts, Oxford Uptown Music Festival, Blue Ash Summer Concert Series among many more.
