Rockers get offa their cloud
Published 14/07/14



THE Rolling Stones Adoration Society — AKA rock band the Crossfire Hurricanes — are blown away to be playing at the Henley Fringe festival again this year and are especially delighted with the venue.

The band, which plays a selection of two dozen of the Stones’ best known material, had a wonderful time at the Angel on the Bridge last year and filled the place on both nights.

So this year they have extended the run to three nights and will be at the rock’n’roll-loving venue, Lovibonds in the centre of town.

“It’s an ideal fit for us,” says guitarist Paul Cleverley. “Lovibonds has a reputation for great music and there’s plenty of room for people to either sit, stand or dance. We’re really looking forward to it.”

Drummer and singer Peat Gregory adds: “We had some of the best nights since we started when we played the Angel on the Bridge last year. It was little cramped but that only added to the atmosphere and somehow people found room to dance — it’s very hard for them not to at our gigs. The Stones seem to have a Faustian pact which says that you MUST move your feet whenever you hear their music.”


The band has been together for three years and while they don’t make any attempt to imitate the Stones’ look, they make sure that the rock’n’roll spirit of the music is always there.

“We combine that with audience interaction and dialogue so that it’s an all-round entertaining experience,” says Mike Rowbottom, the band’s manager, singer and guitarist. “It gave us some great moments last year, but also some strange ones.

“We were approached by one woman who said she was reviving the place in Richmond where the Stones started, The Crawdaddy Club, and would we play there? We were chuffed to be asked and held our breath for months waiting for the call from her. Of course, it never came.”

The band takes to the stage at Lovibonds on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Fringe week.

Mike says: “I’ve been supporting the Fringe in all manner of ways since it started and it’s been fantastic to be part of the performance set up for the last couple of years.”
