Just as Atlanta native and Berklee School of Music grad Blair Crimmins began considering the Hot Jazz/Ragtime sounds that predated his birth by three-quarters of a century, his grandmother passed away, bequeathing him a wealth of ancient furniture, books and photographs.

Awash in nostalgia but tweaking with Rock & Roll energy, Crimmins assembled a group of like-minded players and christened them Blair Crimmins & The Hookers. After three years of converting Rock audiences to their newfound direction and dealing with the inevitable personnel shifts, Crimmins and The Hookers released their 2010 full-length debut, The Musical Stylings of Blair Crimmins & The Hookers.

Blair Crimmins & The Hookers play the Thompson House in Newport at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. $10. thompsonhousenewport.com.
