"Something that needs to be heard. [T]here's so much potential for greatness. On stage they explode in a visual feast of dancing, singing, and a bit of comedic charm but it's the music that really sells this group.”

Brian "Jiinx" Daniel
Reviewer for Beyond Hollywood

“Production and presentation wise, they have taken cleverness and creativity to a new level. There's no doubt about it - fame's in this bands future."

Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro,

Peaches and Crime

The modern audience hungers for spectacle, and Peaches & Crime has come to sate that hunger. Bands are a dime a dozen, musicians three for a penny; the public clamors for performers that enthrall the senses and capture the imagination. For what a ticket or a record costs, people want an experience that only a total performance can deliver. The vaudeville escapades of Peaches & Crime accomplish precisely that by marrying novel original music to inimitable wit and vim.

With Ross on the drums, Honest Stephen Longfield on Bass, Mikey the Fist tickling the ivories and Vinny T on guitar, they build a strong musical foundation upon which the show is built. When not playing the trombone, clarinet or ukulele, Abigail Pins, Young Catherine and Annie Hatchet bring theatricality front and center center with their ring leader, Angie Diamond. Finally, Danny Black acts as Master of Ceremonies, ensuring that there is never a dull moment in this diverse cabaret act!

On stage, this act never passes up an opportunity for dramatic flourish, comic antics, or sophisticated charm. From murder ballads to torch songs, calypso tunes to drinking songs, no style is unfamiliar to these eclectic entertainers. Colorful costumes, diverse instrumentation and flashy dances make any Peaches & Crime show well worth the cost of admission. Each individual’s talents are shown to their finest, and together they wow even the most jaded dance-hall connoisseur.

With the release of The Great Display, Peaches & Crime brings the experience of countless live performances to an album for the first time, the better to ensnare new fans the world over. Thrill to Ross’ homemade percussion in “I’ll Take the Rest”, succumb to the black-widow charms of Angie Diamond in “Mrs. Colt Revolver”, or even further your moral education with “The Monstrous Deeds Rag”. Whether jerking tears or poking fun, Peaches and Crime will charm the young and old alike with its virtuoso performances and colorful personalities. Their subject matter stretches from love and death to war and peace, and stopping everywhere in between. Peaches & Crime will sing, play, dance and quip its way into your heart like a gunshot in the dark.
