Since the release of their album "Let's Do This Thing" in 2015 (followed almost immediately by an eight-song holiday EP, “It’s a Crime Scene Christmas”), Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene have taken the national roots music scene by storm, spending most of 2016 touring across North America.
From sweaty, sold-out small clubs to the main stage of Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest, the Crime Scene shows no signs of slowing down. "The vintage tones swing and punch—like Joan Jett backed by the Stray Cats," noted Pandora when naming "Let's Do This Thing" their pick of the week. Longmont Magazine adds, "It’s rockabilly with a Patti Smith attitude. They’re good. Really good.
Kerry Pastine (vocals), Pauly Six (guitar), Lance Romance (upright bass) and Mad Dog (stand-up drums) mix elements of the past—rockabilly, jump blues, classic soul and garage rock—into an intoxicating original sound that fans are calling a "roots-rock ‘n’ 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 the pieces fall into place, a joyful celebration of life, love and hazy nights of live music, friends, a hint of danger.
