Cruisers Get Mileage Out of Various Genres



Who: The Cruisers
Where: Western Suburbs Leagues Club
When: Friday February 9, 2001

WHEN they're playing three or four sets a night at the local club, bands such as THE CRUISERS know you have to be versatile.

That's how the five-piece, playing this Friday night at Western Suburbs Leagues Club, has stayed viable.

According to guitarist TREVOR PARKINSON 'most of the crowds stay on the dance floor'.

With JOHN HALLS on drums, DARIO ROSSI on lead vocals and Parkinson on guitar, the group added CRAIG HORDER on bass and JOHN GILCHRIST on keyboards in August.

The band plays a mixture of '70s, '80s, '90s, Top 40.

'If there's a room full of oldies, we'll play our '50s stuff, but when a younger crowd comes along later in the night we can cater for them,' he said.

'Some of our heavier stuff includes AC/DC, LED ZEPPELIN and SANTANA, but we can go back to do songs by ELVIS, BUDDY HOLLY and THE EVERLY BROTHERS.'
