ABOUT BLAIR CRIMMINS & THE HOOKERS


Blair Crimmins began his current music career in Atlanta, Georgia, with a determination to bring Ragtime and 1920’s style Dixieland Jazz to new audiences. What he created was a sound that is at once modern while being deeply rooted in the past.  Now four years, and five hundred shows later, he has toured States playing large venues and has opened for national acts such as Mumford & Sons and O.A.R.  A multi-instrumentalist and music academic, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for a classic New Orleans style horn section  consisting of Trumpet, Clarinet, Trombone. His debut release “The Musical Stylings Of” became a college radio sensation on WRAS Atlanta making him the most requested band on the air. In 2012 Crimmins showed his musical diversity by writing and recording the full score for the independent short film “Old Man Cabbage”.  2014-2015 has been another landmark year for Blair Crimmins as he has toured in support of his highly anticipated album entitled “Sing-a-longs”.  The album is a breakthrough record which showcases a band who have polished their signature sound from years of touring.

“Atlanta’s genre blending ensemble Blair Crimmins and The Hookers have been creating a sound that is both unique and inspired for years. Crimmins himself began developing it some time ago, honing in on the magic of ragtime and the 1920’s, coupled with some Dixieland jazz. The fourth studio album from Crimmins’ impressive creative mind is due out in February of 2017, and we haven’t been this excited in quite some time.” – Impose Magazine

“I can’t believe what I have heard several times now. This man has taken me back to the first conceptions of rocking and rolling. A time when jazz crazy people of the 30’s swung into a big band room. I’m talking about early stuff like Count Basie, Etta James, and early Ray Charles; into later music such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, or Elton John.” – Rock Fist Review
