Fair, Yates, Betschart & McCrossan

50th Anniversary


Performed by : Fair, Yates, Betschart & McCrossan

For 50 YEARS Inky Fair (drums & vocals) and Doug Betschart (guitar, vocals & bass pedals) have played music together throughout New England, starting with the band “Moonfast” in 1972.  After joining with Tom Yates (guitar, bass, keyboards & vocals) they formed “Fair, Yates & Betschart”, becoming the renowned house band at Timothy’s Spirits Company in Framingham for 5 years.  They packed the house weekly and released their album “Spirits” of all original material.  Inky and Doug then became the rock duo Back Pages for 30+ years and with the recent addition of Steve McCrossan (keyboard, bass & vocals), continue to perform throughout the local area. 

For this 50th Anniversary night at THE BLACK BOX in Franklin, Tom Yates is returning to the fold to form “Fair, Yates, Betschart & McCrossan” along with some special guests from the early years! With the unusual combination of our varied talents, the band will cover a vast eclectic mix of classic and modern rock spanning five decades.  It’s an event not to be missed…
