Blair Crimmins & The Hookers
Blair Crimmins & The Hookers
Blair Crimmins began his 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 all over the country playing large venues and has opened for national acts such as "Mumford & Sons" and "Preservation Hall Jazz Band". A multi-instrumentalist, 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. His last release and video "State Hotel" landed them a full feature in Creative Loafing Atlanta. In 2012 Crimmins showed his musical diversity by writing and recording the full score for the independent short film "Old Man Cabbage". The following year, Crimmins was the critics pick for Best Song Writer of 2013 in Creative Loafing's Best of ATL issue. Blair now continues touring to support his newest studio album entitled "Sing-a-longs", a high energy jazz record which showcases a band who have polished their signature sound from years of touring together.
Fanny and The Atta Boys
Simplicity is the defining factor of Fanny and the Atta Boys’ music. However, this group based out of San Diego, California, is also a band of eclectic sound, amalgamating a variety of genres into their music. Their sound is largely centered on American roots, country swing, and depression era jazz, with classic blues styling thrown in for good measure.

With driving vocals from Fanny and Natt Wise, the band is known to put on a show that engages the audience with its energy, soul, and sense of humor. At any given Fanny and the Atta Boys show, you are likely to experience a generally lighthearted, funny, and lively set. While the band does add a few soul-stirring songs into the mix to keep things well rounded during their performances, their shows always promise the audiences a heck of a good time. Fanny and the Atta Boys have shared the stage with or opened for The Blasters, Big Sandy And His Flyrite Boys, Jake La Boltz, and Wayne ‘The Train’ Hancock.
