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.”
