Review from the DERBY GIG GUIDE December 2013

Andy & Phil Double Cross. I don’t do reviews very often ‘cause we all have different tastes, but these guys are in a league of their own, playing Rock/Blues Pop and when you see them you’ll see that the level of musicianship is a cut above the rest, their first number ‘Flip flop fly’ an old 50’s classic and sets the standard not many bands could reach never mind a duo. Phil is an excellent vocalist and one hell of a harp player. I heard how good Double Cross were from a landlord who messaged me halfway thought a set and said he wanted them booked back in as soon as possible, so off we (Blue Monkey Bluesman Kev and me) go to the New Zealand Arms, I was knocked out at the tracks they picked, this was across the board, so there was something everybody could tap their feet to, on the Sunday afternoon we’re at The Flowerpot to see them again and by the time they were due to go on the Pot had filled up nicely, 3 hours, now I’ll say that again, 3 hours of great music everything from Hendrix, AC/DC, Bowie, Police, Eagles, Joe Jackson and Thin Lizzy and it goes on and on, these guys played straight thro no break, halfway thro’ looking around the Pot was near capacity something most landlords would die for on a Saturday night never mind a Sunday afternoon. Double Cross are the top of their game, I should imagine there’s been a lot of blood sweat and tears along the way putting this set together and it’s paid off, pure perfection, they return to The Flowerpot on Sunday December 29th so I’ll tell you now it will be a full house so get in early. Like I said these guys set a standard most bands can only dream about let alone a duo. Well they’ve walked it Derby Live music’s ‘Best of’ for 2013/14.

DoubleCross at Trent Navigation Friday Night Blues 22nd September 2013 review

Double Cross made the short journey from Derby friday to entertain us with Blues and Rock from Robert Johnson to Stevie Ray Vaughan.One or two of their own compositions were added to their super show.It was not only their first visit,but they are the first act to play non-stop for a little over two and a quarter hours.Have a listen to the guitar solo from Andy on All Along The Watchtower the video of which is added below,along with excellent vocals from Phil.They did an excellent job of delivering Willie Dixon's Spoonful as well as Lindisfarne's Lady Eleanor,a song rarely heard these days.Their own arrangement of Police's Roxanne was classic.Let's hope they return in the near future.
