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 released his anticipated 4th studio album You Gotta Sell Something. The band will be touring through 2017 performing their newest songs from the record as well as old favorites from his past recordings.

The Rock-A-Sonics are an exciting rockabilly band led by young phenom, Willie Barry who is getting attention around the globe. They play a versatile mix of authentic rockabilly, vintage country, and atomic age rock and roll.

In January 2014 an extraordinary teenaged singer hopped a time machine from the fifties and landed on the doorstep of four Washington DC area rockabilly musicians. They initially got together just to play a single show (a Buddy Holly tribute), but quickly realized the combination should become a regular thing and the Rock-A-Sonics were born. Their deep playlist and variety of styles and tempos have made them a favorite of the DC/MD/VA/PA swing dance communities and Americana music fans everywhere.

The Rock-A-Sonics are playing regularly at clubs, carshows, dances, and street festivals throughout the mid Atlantic area. They've appeared nationally at the Viva Las Vegas rockabilly weekender in 2016 and 2017, the New England Shake-Up weekender in 2017, and twice at
Musikfest in Bethlehem Pa. plus classic car shows such as the Hot Rod Rumble, Mobtown Greaseball, Gasket Goons, and Jalopy Showdown.

Members of The Rock-A- Sonics have played with Marti Brom, Deke Dickerson, Collins Kids, Sleepy LaBeef, Jumpin' Jupiter, J.P. McDermott and Western Bop, the Hurtt Brothers, Four Star Combo, Pink and Black, Out Behind The Barn, Kiti Gartner, Natty Beaux, The Peashooters, Old Line Skiffle Combo, Daryl Davis, Bill Kirchen, Jake Starr and the Delicious Fullness, Nils Lofgren, and Ringo Starr.
