"This ain't your great-grandfather's ragtime, and Blair Crimmins isn't any quaint Dixieland revivalist. He's a rock star . . . Swing, Hookers, swing!" James Man (Ink 19)
A great choice for fans of The Wiyos, Frank Vignola and Caravan of Thieves. Band leader Blair Crimmins is a time traveler--a music preservationist and playful showman from Atlanta determined to bring Ragtime and 1920's Dixieland Jazz to today's audience. Inspired by role-models such as Count Basie, Etta James, Little Richard and Professor Longhair, Blair has opened for Mumford & Sons and Preservation Hall Jazz Band and played a multitude of venues large and small (500 in the past four years!). A multi-instrumentalist and charming entertainer, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for his classic New Orleans style horn section of trumpet, clarinet and trombone. His new album, "Sing-a-longs" has received rave reviews and a Best Song Writer of 2013 pick in Atlanta's arts weekly.
