Without further ado, we introduce to you The Cryers' new #guitarist, Jimmy McElligott, aka Jimmy Mac, to all his many friends and parole officers!

A forty-year veteran of the NYC rock scene (since 1978), Jimmy is currently lead guitarist and vocalist for NYC's club mainstays the Dive Bar Romeos as well as legendary rocker/producer Genya Ravan with whom he had the "Coolest Song in the World" in August 2016 on Sirius XM's Underground Garage.

Denny Laine with The Cryers Spring 2018

The Cryers are very excited and lucky to be entering their 12th year performing with Denny Laine, who will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April as a founding member of the Moody Blues. Come out and see us perform Moody Blues songs like "Go Now," "I'll Go Crazy," and "Can't Nobody Love You," along with Paul McCartney & Wings classics like "Band on the Run," "Live and Let Die," and "Time to Hide," with Denny as the band kicks off their spring tour on April 26th at Knucklehead's Saloon in Kansas City, MO.
