Howdy-ho, folks! It’s been a spell since we’ve updated any news in between playing gigs here and there, but now we have some major news for y’all!
There is a new member in Crossfyre, as we have added a third guitarist in addition to Jaakko Kinnari (who is our full-time six-stringer) and Jay Jay Asikainen (original band member who only joins us on occasion for select gigs). The new man in the mix is Kai Olavi Järvinen, a long-time gigging musician with over two decades of band experience. Kai’s been here, there and little bit everywhere, plying his talents, and now, he’s in Crossfyre!
Kai will be playing his second gig with us this coming Saturday night, April 29 at a private party for Crossfyre vocalist Michael “StarBuck” Majalahti’s wife Diana’s 30th birthday bash, after which the entire band with new guitarist in tow will head out to play the Wild Viking BBQ Fest in Hanko, Finland on May 27: www.vikingsbbqparty.com
This summer, Crossfyre will be going once again to Poland and Germany for a set of gigs, including the huge Gryf Party bash in Poland for one of the oldest MC clubs in all of Europe!
