Far Cry

Far Cry have been regularly playing the club and bar circuit in the NY/NJ area since August 1995, but the Far Cry name has been around for much longer than that. Started in 1986, the band has had many impressive members over the years, including such alumni as Robert Mason (Lynch Mob), Joey Z (Prophet), Jimmy Callahan (Prophet), and present members Billy Orrico, Bruce Terkildsen (Voodooland), and of course, Karl Cochran.

Far Cry plays a huge variety of classic rock cover tunes, from The Allman Brothers to ZZ Top, from Black Sabbath to Stevie Ray Vaughan. If you want to hear it, there's a good chance Far Cry will play it. Just to keep things interesting, they spice their set up with some newer tunes from Alice In Chains and Stone Temple Pilots. At last count, they have a song list of 120+ songs of some of the best rock of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s on their regular setlist.

Far Cry also showcases an acoustic set, which really shows off Bruce and Karl’s singing talents, reminding their audiences just what fine musicians these guys really are.




Far Cry has rocked their audience for many years, and their full-on energy always has people dancing in the aisles and singing along at the top of their lungs, which is why they never fail to draw a loyal crowd wherever they play.

Review from Hard Rock Cafe in NYC:

The opening band, FAR CRY, which features Karl Cochran (he's been around for a while; You might have seen him playing guitar with ACE FREHLEY during his '95 and '96 Bad Boys tour) hit the stage and ripped through a ton of cover tunes. For a three piece band, they sounded huge. They nailed songs by KISS, LED ZEPPELIN and a ton of others. Karl's hand was all f----d up too; it really seemed as if one of his fingers was clearly broken, but he played lead guitar with a swollen, sausage-lookin' finger regardless.
