The Last Time, Crossfire Hurricanes are based in South Oxfordshire, with Mike from Stoke Row, bass player and singer Barry Rosier from Henley, guitarist Paul Cleverley from Wallingford, and drummer, sax player and singer Peat Gregory from Tadley.

Crossfire Hurricanes play Lovibonds brewery on Friday, October 2. Stage time is around 8.30pm.
