About Us





CrossTown Renegades 
 
 
When the members of the CrossTown Renegades Band take the stage the listening crowd recognises immediately there is something unique about them, an elusive quality that makes their performance "Lagniappe" or "a little more". They bring their collective history and love of the music with them and share it with every show. CrossTown Renegades has appeared in venues as large as Houston's Minute Maid Park and everything in between, down to Intimate Club Venues.
