"Boneyard Junction is an established 4 piece band, playing a wide selection of cool covers and styles. The set comprises songs by artists such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, T Rex, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Blur and Primal Scream, among others.
Our aim is to avoid cliché and the normal pub fayre while still providing over 2 hours of quality, professional entertainment. The band members have over 40 years of experience playing gigs of every sort.
Basically, what we’re trying to say is that we are not the normal kind of pub band and we pride ourselves on providing an entertaining, well chosen set, avoiding the pub rock standards that have been heard countless times before. In addition to this, our performance encompasses stage lighting so we look as good as we sound."


Friday 2nd January 2015 - THE CROSSFIRE - at The Market Inn

9pm

Ray Whisker - Drums, Al Cork - Guitar, Robin Falcon - Vox, John Tracey - Bass, Richard Money - Keys.

"One off gig, as a final farewell from this incarnation of the Crossfire. We have managed to drag Ray out of music retirement in Surrey, so it is the full original line-up. Really looking forward to this gig, and fitting that it's in Faversham, where we started out."

The Crossfire came into existence between lunch and around half past 3 on a Tuesday and draws from musicians who have played with many other bands previously, including Texas, Deep South, Nik Kershaw, Skintight Jackson, Jam Sandwich,The Chillbillies, The Rodneys, Born 2 Be & PPB ….. to name a few.

All hard core ex- Pro musicians, born & raised in a vat of Jack Daniels, with a slightly smoky flavour, the band play a powerful blend of rock, acoustic rock & blues influences, with the occasional bit of funk thrown in. Though mainly a covers band, The Crossfire also have some strong original material. CD release planned for later in 2014. Artists covered currently include Talking Heads, Elbow, Stereophonics, Blur, Stones, Beatles, Daft Punk, Foo Fighters, Muse, Radiohead, The Killers, Snow Patrol, Weller, ThePretenders, Starsailor, Bowie, U2 and The Who.

"As the dust settles over the Kent tucky skyline a band of desperate men ride into town.Lock up the women! a cry goes out. This King is in town. But there are no locks that can contain the wanting, Taking Care of Vegas are in the building.Batten down the hatches, put on your blue suede dancing shoes and party jeans, and get ready to rock’n’roll the night away.In July 1969 Elvis bought to Vegas his show band, performing a catalogue of greatest hits, past and present. The result of these shows redefined a Music legend. Now relive those wonder years with TCV.
No need to fly to Vegas, Vegas has come to you!
So get ready for some feverish, hip shakin’, rock’n’roll music.
Add some death defying kung fu for some extra heat!!
As live on stage, please welcome Taking Care of Vegas ... ... ..."
