Love of the blues. Love of Stevie Ray Vaughan. The love of re-creating a feeling that so many enjoyed -- and so many missed. These are the things that drove the creation of Crossfire, a tribute band that strives to capture the essence of a Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble concert with authenticity, respect, and yes, love.
Anyone who was ever fortunate enough to experience Stevie and Double Trouble's driving blues-rock in concert will never forget the way they played together live. Playing blues rock since the 60's, Alan Iglesias draws from a wealth of SRV musical history and knowledge as well as his own life experience to faithfully reproduce the famed Texas "thundershuffie" and perform each show ever-mindful of the tremendous responsibility that he bears -- to do his very best to bring back as much of the original experience as he possibly can, every time he performs.
Alan Iglesias has been playing guitar professionally since 1969 when he first started playing at dances at his local VFW. After high school, Alan toured the New England area extensively with local blues-based rock bands, garnering a loyal regional following. Feeling a strong affinity for Stevie's music and stage show, he felt that endeavoring to reproduce a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert as close as he possibly could just seemed to be the right thing to do. He considers it a privilege to have the opportunity to play such soulful music in the style of someone who played so much from his heart, and would love to think that in some small way, he and the band are helping to keep the legacy of Stevie and his music alive.
CROSSFIRE is currently touring extensively making Stevie Ray Vaughan fans ecstatic wherever they go. No matter where they play or what the circumstances, one thing that you can count on is that Crossfire will bring their full-on pedal-to-the-floor show every time they take the stage.
