Cross Country is a band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 1973 by three-fourths of the musical group, The Tokens - Jay Siegel, Mitch Margo and Phil Margo.

The group released one self-titled album on the Atco Records label featuring a top 40 cover of Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour". The Cross Country version is altogether different from Pickett's 1965 soul hit. The first two minutes of the Cross Country single is considerably slower with an acoustic backdrop, picking up a bit with some psychedelic touches in the last third of the track which is a little over three minutes in length (3:14). This single reached #30 in the U.S. in fall 1973.
