CrossFire places a heavy emphasis on dual / harmony guitar arrangements. The back-drop of tasteful classic rock covers assures both crowds and club owners that dancing is ALWAYS an option. The main focus of this band however, is to take CNY Music clubs on a much needed journey. This show embodies the return of tasteful rock guitar to local live music venues. The CrossFire set list ignites a platform of solid, instantly recognizable classic rock favorites by infusing the songs with intricate dual guitar passages, harmony dual guitar leads and spontaneous free-for-all electric guitar melee's.
The band also places a premium on selecting iconic songs that other bands don't (or can't) play. The core material ranges from classics by Santana, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Eric Johnson, Aerosmith, The Doors, Deep Purple, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn and The Allman Brothers, to newer classics by Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, Gun's & Roses, Van Halen, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The group is a cover band and proud of it. "We express our creativity with our instruments and arrangements." If you want to hear obscure original music, there are plenty of admirable artists in the local coffee houses. If you want to witness an evening of searing rock guitar, intricate harmony leads and spontaneous dual guitar solos check the bands list of club dates and come out to support CrossFire.
CrossFire plays a wide range of popular rock favorites for all generations. These Goo Goo Dolls and Dave Matthews tunes were selected from our list specifically for a college town crowd. Some of the girls came up on stage to help us on the Bongo's Come out to see us play other intricate covers as well from Kansas, Steely Dan, Deep Purple, Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin among others.....
