Crossroads - Cover Band | Sri Lanka(no reviews)
Based In: Sri Lanka
Our repertoire is the epitome of choice catering for all manner of tastes. Tracks covered are classic dance music from the 70's through to the current releases, reggae, soul, classic soft rock from the 80's and 90's, Rod Stewarts American Song Book and of course Sri Lankan baile. With our repertoire we are versatile and can adapt to perform at all kinds of venues/ functions to entertain and delight any crowd. Our main focus is ensuring the music being played is pleasing the crowd.
Our unique sound is thanks to the singer’s husky voice; however Crossroads is a combination of different ta ... lents and energies all on one stage. The band has 5 members that have a lot of experience playing in bands both in Sri Lanka and overseas - India, Australia, Dubai and the US. We are currently enjoying success in Sri Lanka; both as a full band and acoustic unplugged piece.
Bio – My music career started back in school when a group of friends decided to put a band together for fun. This gave me the first taste and the desire to follow my passion in music. However it was not until a few years later that I joined a band and started performing part time in venues in Colombo and Bentota. Due to my unique husky voice I had always had success with Rod Stewart tributes and the rock classics of the 80's and 90's.
During this time I was also working for a shipping company as a sales and marketing manager.
My big break came when I was asked to join the Sri Lankan popula ... r band Wildfire as the lead singer. I spent 3 years with Wildfire enjoying success in Colombo, Australia and India until the band decided to split in 2008/9
I formed Crossroads after Wildfire split. As I had years of experience behind in the local music industry I decided to collaborate with other musicians to form a band of my own. Crossroads is currently enjoying success in Sri Lanka playing at the top nightclub venues in Colombo and for private and corporate functions with a huge following. In the past years we have also performed at the Formula 1 Race that was held in Colombo, at the Cricket Tournaments held at the Royal College Colombo and an October Beer Fest to name a few. In 2012 I organised a Crossroads concert in Colombo, collaborating with local sponsors in order to get the event up and running. The concert had a massive turn out despite other events happening on the same night and as a result I am in the process of organizing an event for 2013.
My sales and marketing experience has also been a great help to me when promoting and selling my band for local functions and overseas contracts. My outgoing personality has entertained many a crowd whilst performing at private functions and contracts at the bars and nightclubs of Colombo.
