Cross Purpose (Roots/Rock)

June 14, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT


Cross Purpose is a four-piece roots/rock band formed in 2005. They have brought their tunes to such exciting venues as the City Center Danbury Summer Concert Series, The Bushnell in Hartford, The Marlborough Arts Center in Marlborough, CT, The Bethel, The CT Summer Concert Series, Harvest Moon Orchard in North Salem, NY, Hayfields Market in North Salem, NY, The Howland Cultural Center in Beacon, NY, The Putnam County 4-H Fair in Carmel, NY, and many others. While Cross Purpose plays a lot of their own material, they also perform an eclectic array of covers. With about 175 years of experience among them, they are skilled at tailoring material to each venue they visit. For this particular evening, June 14th at The Buttonwood Tree, their drummer will use a djembe and a cajon instead of a full kit.

Their first CD, Sum Of The Parts, with 12 original songs was released in 2007. Their second CD, Live At The Upper Room, came out in 2011, the CD, These Men You’ve Made, with another 12 original tunes became available in 2013, and they’ve just released their fourth, The Extent Of What We Know, which contains another 14 originals. Cross Purpose’s members consists of Bob Stanhope (13-time winner in the Billboard Magazine Songwriting Contest) / Vocals and rhythm guitar, Roy Ellingsen (MCA Records recording artist) / Vocals and lead guitar, Doug Bolin (An original member of The Annie Moses Band) / Vocals and bass, Greg Flower / Drums.
