About the band:
X-Krush has been packing clubs, rocking private parties, opening for national acts and has hit just about every fair and festival in downstate Illinois since 1997. Over the years we have managed to become pretty good at what we do and that is to deliver a great show both sonically and visually as well as to create a party whenever we play. The fact that the band is still going, growing and able to be considered a top draw regionally speaks to the consistency of delivering a quality show. We play tunes that we think the crowd will enjoy for one reason or another and we do not limit ourselves to one genre. Country, rock, metal, 80’s pop and hard rock, current pop and rock, old school hip-hop, classic rock, punk, electro, Irish rockers, new rockers and whatever else we think will get backsides moving and cash registers ringing. We genuinely appreciate being able to perform and we absolutely love our fans which continue to allow us to do this. If you attend a show you will see the band and crowd together as one in the music and moment. X-Krush is all about having FUN and kicking it with the people that enjoy what we have to offer.
X-Krush has opened for the following national acts: Skid Row, Warrant, David Allan Coe, 30 Seconds to Mars, Saliva, Firehouse, Jackyl, Tone Loc, Steven Adler (of Guns N Roses), Sebastian Bach, Jesse James Dupree, Rare Earth and many more.
It's not rocket science...it's Rock N’ Roll…and we got this!
X-Krush…Illinois Rock N’ Roll!
About the live show:
Energy, movement, rocking...over all just kicking out a rock show as should be complete with great sound and lights. Our show flows with songs running together and very little down time between songs, unless we are raising up our glasses to cheers the crowd...which happens often:) We have played wedding receptions with grandma and the kids in the crowd and we have played biker parties where we are just lucky to have kept our clothes on, so we know how to go with the flow and conduct yourself accordingly. The kind of show we deliver depends on the nature of the event. If we are supporting a national act and have a 40 minute set to fill, you can count on that set being slammin' start to finish. If we are playing a 4 hour show you can expect the night to start off with familiar tunes to get the mood set and progressively pick up energy...usually ending with a packed dance floor of sweaty folks that just danced and rocked theirselves silly:)

About the Production:
On request X-Krush can provide a quality sound system and light show that is adequate for most clubs, beer tents etc. For very large venues and very large open air shows additional production is usually required.
X-Krush's 5th member and FOH engineer is Jimmie Myers. Jimmie is a professional engineer with over 20 years experience and has mixed all over the world on both large and small systems. You can't find an easier guy to work with. Yes, he does every show for us unless he tells us he can't make it. Having Jimmie on everyshow ensures that we are as consistant as we can be with our production. Jimmie rocks...know this!
