Spillback is a captivating, high-energy rock band, made up of four seasoned musicians that play covers of rock music from the 70's to the present.

Providing great entertainment and feet-stomping, hard-driving music, Spillback doesn't just play songs, they put on a show!!!

The band is ideal for any bar, club, casino, corporate, private or holiday engagement that demands "high impact" entertainment as Spillback delivers the energy of a fully live musical experience.

Spillback is fronted by female vocalist, Kinnexa Cross, who has performed as a solo-entertainer, singing jazz/pop/rock tunes in the Southern Ontario area for many years. She also teaches voice, piano, and keyboards. Kinnexa recently released a solo CD entitled "Cheaper than a Shrink". Check it out at www.kinnexacross.com
