About The Event

David Cross Band

A pioneer of rock violin and former member of the ground-breaking ‘Larks’ Tongues  in Aspic’ incarnation of King Crimson, David Cross accepts no limits on the range  and power of his instrument or his music. David is a prolific creator with a great  number and range of albums to his name. He has toured in Europe, the USA, Japan  and South America, and with the David Cross Band he has developed a truly  progressive stage act delivering up to date, hard-edged rock songs with heart and  humour. The band continues to amaze and delight contemporary audiences, playing  material from their forthcoming studio album, classics from previous years and some  songs from David’s time with King Crimson (always with a DCB twist to them).

‘Sign of the Crow’ (Noisy Records-2016) has been described as ‘an unmitigated  masterwork’ and has attracted high acclaim from metal and jazz reviewers as well as  progressive rock journalists.

Prog has always been a weird beast, but one which has largely been tamed in  recent years. With this album, David Cross has proven what can be achieved when you reignite the fire in its belly’. (Mark Ashby in Uber Rock)

David Cross: Electric violin

Initially inspired by Leadbelly, the Beatles, Bartok, Coltrane and his church organist  father, David became an irrepressible improvisor and experimenter. His subsequent  immersion in rock music introduced him to a new, vast pool of expressive  possibilities. Currently, he plays a half-fretted Violectra electric violin with 5 strings  and an octave drop pedal, giving him a pitch range from the bottom of the cello to the  top of the violin.

Jonathan Casey: Lead vocals and guitar

Jonathan Casey is a TV/film composer and performing musician from Ireland. His  compositions have been performed live by orchestras and featured on shows all  around the world. He currently fronts the Irish prog rock group, M-Opus. Jonathan  provided vocals for David Cross on the 'Closer Than Skin' and 'Alive in the  Underworld' albums and is delighted to be collaborating with David once again.

Sheila Maloney: Keyboards

Sheila worked with the original David Cross Band, writing and co-producing tracks on  the first three albums. She also recorded with Geoff Serle on Radius and  Sonicphonics studio projects. As well as creating her own music, she has produced  and played keyboards on Mick Paul’s “Parallel Lives” and currently writes and plays  keyboards for “The Fae”.

Mick Paul: Bass Guitar and vocals

Mick joined the David Cross Band in 1995, recording the album ‘Exiles’ featuring  members of King Crimson, including Robert Fripp and John Wetton. He has  coproduced, sung and played on all the DCB’s releases since then and performed  with the band in Europe and Japan. In June 2021 Mick released his own album  ‘Parallel Lives’. His most asked question is ‘how many strings does your bass have’?

Jack Summerfield: Drums

Jack is a London based drummer, arranger, music director, and tutor. In the last few  years this accomplished and energetic player has been working closely with some  outstanding artists all over the world, including James Vickery (drums), Plested

(drums), Evert Outen (drums), Le Fil (MD/drums), Milly (MD/drums). Jack has  performed on several theatre shows, as well as traveling the world as a performer on  various cruise lines.

Dandelion Charm (duo) from Newhaven, England. Think Fleetwood Mac meets Opeth, CSN meets Yes. Intricate harmonies and epic outros tell emotional stories of dysfunction, joy and despair. When performing as an acoustic duo John and Clare Fowler are joined by ‘Olah’ - John’s custom-built jumbo twelve-string guitar.
