Florida comes to Finland

As many of you know, I am the vocalist for the premiere southern rock outfit out of Finland today, Crossfyre.  This band’s history goes way back to 1991, birthed in Florida, where drummer Danny Cross and guitarist Jay Jay Asikainen started the ball rolling.  Danny moved to Finland some 15 years back, but Jay Jay remained in Florida.  Everyone else in the Crossfyre line-up nowadays lives in Soutern Finland.

From time to time, about once a year on average, Jay Jay visits Finland and Europe for either recordings or gigs and even tours.  Last year in 2013, Jay Jay couldn’t come over due to work related issues back home in the USA.  This past weekend, however, Jay Jay hooked up with the rest of us in Crossfre to play the annual Moon River city festival in Porvoo, Finland, which currently serves as the band’s headquarters, more or less.

Below you will find some prime pics of Jay Jay playing with Crossfyre in this grand (near-)annual reunion from this past Friday, out on the town square in the middle of Porvoo.  All photos by Mikael Häggblom.
