Bio

The name of the band, Crosstown Traffic Band, indicates that it was formed during the uprise of the 'flower power' music; the music that we play include covers from artists like Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, Doobie Brothers, Earth Wind and Fire, Sting, Tina Turner, Isley Brothers.  The band was formed by six friends, four of whom are still with the group, to perform in school parties and family gatherings. As the years went by the group went on to become one of the most popular bands on the island of Curacao and performed in all popular cafes and nightclubs on the island. Due to the influences of all surrounding islands and countries the band is in a position to perform various types of music such as salsa, merengue, besides the classic rock music.The band is now focusing on performing in international music events (either as primary or pre-show act); in August 2007 the band performed in the pre-show of Marco Antonio Solis in the Curacao Festival Centre; other similar performances are scheduled in February (Curacao) and April 2008 (Aruba). Although all members of the band have other full time employment commitments, the "performance readiness" is upheld through weekly or bi-weekly rehearsals of selected parts of the repertoire of the band.
