"MISSING HIM WOULD BE CRIMMEN - ALL"
Dave Crimmen is a towering, six foot-four inch guitar-slinger who's sassy, smoky crooning conjures the ghost of Elvis during his Sun Records era in '50's Memphis. On "The Son Of Sun", Crimmen sounds like what Chris Isaak wishes he sounded like-harder, more authentic, grittier.
Even the old timers recognize Crimmen's talent. On his 2007 CD, "Big Daddy D", he was backed by the Jordanaires for a couple of tracks. That's the group that backed Patsy Cline, Ricky Nelson and Elvis Presley. Bill Haley's Original Comets recorded one of Crimmen's songs.
The man is a swaggering, rockin' good time. See for yourself this Friday and Saturday July 9 and 10, at the Old Cayucos Tavern.
