George Craig of One Night Only and G.
Prior to One Night Only taking the stage for their sold out show at Santos Party House, I met lead singer George Craig of the British band. He was very cool. He might look like he is in a boy band, but George Craig and his band totally rock! Many reporters view One Night Only to be “the next big thing,” and I, for one, will be looking forward to hearing great things to come for this band.

George Craig of One Night Only.
On March 23, 2010 at New York’s Santos Party House, British quintet One Night Only took the stage to open for the pop sensation Alphabeat. As they walked on stage with their mop-top hair styles, I was expecting them to sound like a boy-band. I stood corrected from the second lead singer and guitarrist George Craig picked up his electric guitar and nearly blew the roof of the sucker with their rockin’ songs. Every song was fast and their sound has elements of The Killers, The Editors and The Courteeners. If you like any of those bands, you’ll probably want to check out One Night Only. Moments before the show, I met lead singer George Craig and he was very nice. A picture of that encounter coming soon. A few fun facts about the band: They got their start as a nameless cover band doing tracks by Blink 182 and the Beatles mixed with their own original material. When asked to perform a proper gig, they didn’t have a name, nor did they expect to last more than one performance so they christened themselves “One Night Only” on the spot.
