David Cross Band (UK)

Saturday July 20th, 2024 - 18:15- Main Stage

The David Cross Band has attracted high acclaim from metal and jazz reviewers as well as progressive rock journalists and this was evidenced following their 'Sign of the Crow' album release.

"Prog has always been a weird beast, but one which has largely been tamed in recent years. With the Sign of the Crow album, David Cross has proven what can be achieved when you re-ignite the fire in its belly". (Mark Ashby in Uber Rock)

The David Cross Band has performed in the UK, Europe and Japan and has a truly progressive stage act delivering modern, hard-edged rock songs from the new CD as well as classics from previous albums - this now being expanded to cover the Larks' Tongues in Aspic album.
