Peaches and Crime is a theatrical music project and Americana Cabaret group that is sure to capture your attention and wow you with their musical styling, acting wit and overall joy. With drama, comical antics, and sophistication, Peaches and Crime is definitely a performance that cannot be missed.
Hailing from Binghamton, New York, Peaches and Crime’s act is filled with ballads and songs that discuss murder, drinking and other rowdy topics. Their performances and acts range all the way from love and death to war and peace, and each show is guaranteed to blow every attending spectator away. After a well-received live performance on the WHRW Radio Marathon, Peaches and Crime proved that their colourful costumes, flashy dance routines and wide range of instrumentation are definitely worth the small price of admission.
The eclectic entertainers and members of Peaches and Crime include Angie Diamond (lead vocals), Ross (percussion), Abbigail Pins (trombone, piano and backing vocals), Young Catherine (clarinet and backing vocals), Honest Stephen Longfield (bass), Mikey the Fist (piano and accordion), Danny Black (master of ceremonies), and Annie Hatchett (backing vocals and ukulele). These talented singers, dancers and colourful, comedic personalities have the definite potential to reach fame in the future and I have a feeling they don’t plan on slowing down any time soon.
With an obvious jazz theme, Peaches and Crime’s songs are quirky, brooding, and everything in between. My personal favourite was “Rum Runner,” but be sure to check out hits like “I’ll Take the Rest,” “Mrs. Colt Revolver,” and “The Monstrous Deeds Rag” as well. Their CDs include The Great Display which was released digitally in July 2010 and then physically in October 2010, along with their latest CD titled Vaude-VILLAINS!, which was released in August 2012. They have also released a DVD that is called Dinner Date with Death. With Peaches and Crime’s CDs, DVDs and live performances one thing is a guarantee, you can be sure to expect a true vaudeville experience at every turn.
