Sold For EvilFrom our viewpoint the present socioeconomic conditions are spiralling downwards due to the increasing power of money, banks and the media. We strongly condemn this system through our music. Our songs are mainly about the way we experience the ill effects of this system in our everyday lives. Many tend to shun this reality, blindly focusing on their own wellbeing and forgetting that we share a community with others. Greed becomes overpowering and ignorance becomes bliss.

JFK BlueIt’s always difficult to follow such a well received set - it’s almost as if the gauntlet has been thrown down. But follow it JFK Blue did and with some style as they tore through numbers from their debut album, ‘Rough Round The Edges’ and some new songs. This was, it seemed, a band on a mission. Ably fronted by on guitars and vocals the pace was frantic from the off but amazingly just built and built. Sol Ezra and Leslie Fleischman held down the back line with Sol also contributing backing vox.

David Cross BandDavid Cross BandThe music is often quite a journey and can be very emotional - we work very hard to achieve those spine-tingling moments on stage when the music lifts you and time stands still - but then we also laugh a lot - somehow it’s always a surprise when you play something just right (or completely wrong!)
I guess some things are just meant to be - and the David Cross Band is one of those things.

Mick PaulTwo things to remember when playing in DCB (1) always play in time, even if it is 15/16, (2) don't forget your passport. I usually manage to achieve one of these fundamental tasks.
When I first joined DCB in 1995 after spending many years doing studio sessions, I was certainly overwhelmed by the bands incredible sense of time, ie not just playing in 4/4 and realized I had to get used to 'playing outside the box'.
DevienceThe sound of deVience is defined by soaring vocal melodies, swaggering riffs and pulsating rhythms.

LA guitarsMost guitarists are familiar with the term harmonics. When a string is touched lightly above the 12th fret and plucked, it produces a note that is exactly one octave above the fundamental or open string note. If the same string is now pressed at the 12th fret and the note played, it should sound exactly the same pitch as the harmonic. If it does, then intonation at the 12th fret is correct
