“I was blasted away by a back draft of horns; a saxophone, keyboards, either a tenor or bass trombone accompanied by vocals that ripped space and time while mercilessly sucking me back into the ragtime era. BLAIR CRIMMINS & THE HOOKERS possess your soul like a relentlessly starved demon. You are consumed by the ups and downs and the twists and turns of their music so much that calling an exorcist would be an exorcise in futility and error. Their brass and rhythm stick their claws into you and make you lust for more. Their songs are dark and beautifully crude. Crudely beautiful works just as well.

If you want to experience a roller-coaster ride of music then these guys are the ones to give you the ride.”
