The Dustbowl Revival rides a third rail. The band is true to the original Jump Blues and Swing groove, but the musicians also reserve the right to go off on any musical tangent that they deem fun and workable.

July 17 • Thompson House

Crimmins and The Hookers' well considered balance between authenticity and originality has translated to capacity club audiences and sweaty dance floors all over Atlanta (and every point on the compass beyond) and they're always looking for fresh converts.   

A Feast of Fests

Summer isn't summer without at least one trek to an outdoor music festival and all the awkward tan lines, sweaty tees, Instagrams and red Solo cups that accompany them.

National Public Radio christened Susan Werner with the revered title of “Empress of the Unpredictable,” and the Iowa native/Chicago resident has clearly earned the complimentary sobriquet.
