New release - Blair Crimmins and the Hookers
Blair Crimmins writes the music and band arrangements, rounds up the band members, books the tours, and manages the recording process. It is amazing what this guy gets done in a day. How Blair came to ragtime music is an interesting back story for another time, but his home turf in Atlanta's Little Five Points and Cabbagetown is the perfect backdrop for the band concept and fan base. This band is a lot of fun, and the live album really tells that story.
The recording was made in December 2012 at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse, a WWII era movie-theatre-turned-music venue in Atlanta's historic downtown. Blair is just now finishing up the mixing with Ed Rawls and Justin Mcnight at The Living Room Recording in Atlanta. Mastering will be done by Randy Leroy at Airshow Mastering in Takoma Park, Maryland. The album will be generally available on June 4, but in a couple of weeks we'll be offering a presale package for the CD, t-shirts, posters, and sneak-preview downloads.
