How's everyone doing? We're just checkin in. Everyone in the band is healthy and doing their part to help rid us of this beast they call COVID 19.
Please maintain your sanity and look forward to when the red flag comes down and we can all go back in the water.

another great shoot by John Thompson. Black Cross is a bare bones band. We don't do costumes or play dress up (well maybe a hat or two for fun)
John Thompson strikes again .. Our version of Freeborn Man by The Outlaws. Great tune.
