Black Cream at Crosstown Arts
Black Cream is a conglomerate of Memphis’ musical prodigies.
Lead guitarist and good soul TO Crivens flies high with his attention to detail during his solos. The band is anchored by bassist Dr. Derek Brassel, the coolest cat in every room and the unofficially certified groove doctor. His bass lines are spellbinding. On drums and vocals, Courtney Barnes displays jaw-dropping skill and vocal finesse, often harmonizing with his brother, Chris Barnes, who rounds out the Black Cream team on vocals and percussion. Chris Barnes has the charismatic presence of a Baptist preacher and the vocal abilities of your favorite soul crooner.
