Kerry Pastine & The Crime Scene
Kerry Pastine & The Crime Scene
Since the release of their debut album Let's Do This Thing in 2015, Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene have taken the national roots music scene by storm, spending much of the past three years touring North America. Their follow-up EP Bad Magic Baby (released in June 2017) clearly shows the band's growth as songwriters, performers and recording artists, proof that their star is still on the rise.
The Crime Scene is now infamous for their no-holds-barred, pedal-to-the-metal live shows and their reputation has landed them on some of the best stages, shows and festivals throughout the US. From playing sweaty, sold-out clubs as a headliner (as captured in the video for Hell Bent for Heaven), to the coveted support slot for Brian Setzer's sold-out June 2017 Rockabilly Riot show at the Arvada Center to sharing the main stage at the Bohemian Nights New West Fest with The Steve Miller Band, the band is wowing audiences everywhere. Pandora raves, "The vintage tones swing and punch -- like Joan Jett backed by the Stray Cats," and a review of their holiday record "It's a Crime Scene Christmas" proclaimed, "Every song is an original and every one is a winner. Kerry and company leave the bigger names in the dust. Kerry Pastine is Wanda Jackson, Patsy Cline, Grace Slick and Ann Wilson all rolled into one."
Kerry believes in mixing ideas from the past into something new, fun and exciting. There are elements of rockabilly, jump blues, classic soul and garage rock all spun together in an intoxicating original sound that fans are calling a "roots rock & roll party." Party is definitely the name of the game for the Crime Scene. Their songs are born from that magical feeling when a band gets together and the union feels like fate. All of the pieces simply fall into place and the result is a joyful celebration of life, love and hazy nights filled with live music, friends and just a hint of danger.
One of those hazy nights is captured perfectly in the video for Let's Do This Thing. The video caught fire, landing the Crime Scene on television, radio and stages across the U.S. The Fox 31 Everday Show featured the video for their Viral Video spot where hosts Chris Parente and Kathie J commented, "I love this! I could not believe their sound. I thought, 'They have to be [from] L.A.' They are going places!" While on tour in Nashville, the band was invited to the 515 Studio for a televised interview on Nashville Entertainment Weekly where they talked about their "incredible" video and how their unique sound sets them apart from other artists and bands in the "Americana" genre. As Longmont Magazine points out, "It’s rockabilly with a Patti Smith attitude. They’re good. Really good. The music market really is ripe for some rock and roll, so they well may be on their way to bigger venues and locations."
Bigger venues and locations are exactly where Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene plan on heading for the rest of 2017. Past shows have included many major festival appearances and shows with Brian Setzer, The Steve Miller Band, The Record Company, Shakey Graves, Cracker, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, the legendary Dick Dale and many more. The Crime Scene has an impressive Summer 2017 schedule lined up and will be touring in support of their upcoming EP. The band thrives on hard work, writing songs and bringing those songs to as many people as possible. It's time for the rest of the world to DO this thing with Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene!
The sound is at once familiar, but modern. Vintage, but cutting edge. This ride isn't an old Cadillac. Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene is a souped-up hot rod with bulletproof glass, a modern chassis and a shiny new engine. The perfect vehicle for a life of crime and musical performances born of sin.
