so their is no overlap. Kovach’s former project, Trendy Robots, recently disbanded. It wasn’t long before someone grabbed onto Kovach, who claims his new post will be somewhat temporary before his major plan comes to fruition. What’s that plan? You’ll just have to stay tuned. Congrats to Josh and to the members of Fire & Ice Band…welcome to the family.

New Year’s Eve Show!!

Common Crossing has been laying low for a bit in 2016. We’ve only taken a few shows here and there for various reasons (mostly because two members live far away and travel can be rough after a while). We’re happy to announce that we’ll be back at Dean’s Motor Lodge in Portage for New Year’s Eve this year. There will be a small cover charge but it will include a guaranteed good time. We love playing Dean’s and we can’t wait to show you a few things we’ve been working on. Come and party with us and help us wrap up our 20th year together. It’ll be a blast for sure.

“She Comes to Dance”

This song was written for a friend of ours who comes to as many of our shows as she can…even if she’s by herself. The band will be debuting “She Comes to Dance” on ‘The Nite Show with Danny Cashman.’ The episode tapes this Friday in Houlton. Tickets are free and we’d love to pack the place.
