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. While playing small rock clubs around the Southeast he developed 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 the country playing large venues and has opened for acts such as Mumford & Sons and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. A multi-instrumentalist and music academic, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for a classic New Orleans style horn section consisting of Trumpet, Clarinet and Trombone. His debut 2010 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". The following year, Crimmins was the critics pick for Best Song Writer of 2013 in Creative Loafing's Best of ATL issue. His last album entitled "Sing-a-longs" went to #21 on the EuroAmerican radio chart and earned him a nomination at The Georgia Music Awards for Best Jazz Artist. Blair Crimmins has now finished his 4th studio album "You Gotta Sell Something" to be released in February 2017. Crimmins continues touring in anticipation of the album release and performs unreleased tracks from the record as well as old favorites from his past recordings.
