Cross Purpose (Roots Rock)

May 14, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Cross Purpose is a 4 piece roots / rock band formed in 2005 and we’ve brought our tunes to such places as the City Center Danbury Summer Concert Series, The Bushnell in Hartford, The Marlborough Arts Center in Marlborough, CT, The Bethel, 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 we play a lot of our own material (including some that are just for laughs) we also include an eclectic variety of covers.  With about 175 years of experience among us we know how to tailor our material to each venue and for this evening we’re going to have our drummer use a djembe and cajon instead of a full kit.

Our first CD, Sum Of The Parts, with 12 original songs was released in 2007, the second, 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 we’ve just released our fourth, The Extent Of What We Know, which contains another 14 originals.  We are:  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.
