This phenomenal local San Diego group came together to perform, enjoy and experience each others talents. By doing so they created an amazing band that is talented in virtually every genre of music. Each member is a seasoned musician all notably recognized for their collective talent. The group brings to the client a vast wealth of experience including, but not limited to, performing for Royalty, Presidential Events, Television, Cinema, Commercials, Recordings, Fund Raisers, Product Launches and various other endeavors. Notably they have released original recordings, toured with top performing artists, recorded sound tracks for the cinema and television.
Crosswinds music makes memories and their presence creates an atmosphere where people enjoy themselves. A perfect fit for any occasion or surroundings: cool and quiet dinner music, hot rock and roll, the very new, the very old, fun in the fifties, classic, contemporary, country western, jazz, blues and any other sound. Crosswinds band members have performed all over the United States and Europe for events as small as 100 up to thousands. They are high-energy, fun, talented, enthusiastic, exceptional, entertaining, and professional.
With vocals and pop songwriting that reminds us of a souped up jazz Little River Band, Crosswinds' CD, "Running Room", is a 17 song collection of both instrumental light jazz and pop songwriting compositions that land squarely in adult contemporary professionally produced jazz/pop. The key here is groove. The tracks lay strong and repeating foundations for the lead instruments, mostly jazz/rock guitar, sax, and vocals. The opening track, "I Call Her", is adult lyrical reality as the tune reveals, 'I call her when I need you'. The tune is an upbeat dedicated tune of confusion and heartache to the woman who is right, but isn't always. Track 2 is the most ambitious of the jazz instrumental tunes - as guitar and sax interplay gorgeously. It's a medium tempoed smooth jazz pleasure. Track 9, "You Look Like Picture", showcases guitarist, Steve Nichols, who gets to stretch out with his warm clean lead tone. The tune's atmosphere includes rotating key patches that are joyfully hollow with matching bells/xylophone tones. With a black velvet beat, "Crazy Little Girl Line Dancer", has an R&B hook that, despite the length of the title, works right. Track 13, "Miss You", is a ballad of longing - heartfelt and real. Nice stuff.
* Steve and the band are the best bang I ever got for a buck. They came into our venue under less than perfect setup circumstances and just went with it. We had a 125 guest 50th anniversary party that had a range of age from young twenties to eighties and the band had them dancing all night. I want to throw another party just so I can hear these guys again. Thanks, Crosswinds!

"Wow! Not only did they play all types of special requests (even ones they hadn't played before) but they are an AMAZING sounding band. They are total professionals while being warm and kind at the same time. The interaction between all of the band members flows seamlessly and the result is a delight for the audience. If you have an event that needs a fabulous sounding band with an extensive song lists (across many styles) you just can't go wrong here. You WANT to book this band!"
