Guitar Legend DICK DALE
Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.
Kerry Pastine & The Crime Scene
Kerry Pastine & The Crime Scene
Kerry Pastine has always gravitated toward an original sound steeped in tradition, but with a modern edge. When it comes to musical projects, she insists on a hint of danger, good times and a damn good dance party. Simplicity rules, but needs to be backed up with taste and musical chops. Until now, she has always hesitated with putting her name on the marquee. But the time is now. It's time to introduce Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene.

Once again she has paired up with longtime partner in crime (and in life), Paul Shellooe (both formerly of The Informants). Together in their downtown Denver apartment they woodshedded for over a year, writing new original material and capturing the sound that they both heard in their heads, but had yet to capture on stage.

The sound is at once familiar, but modern; vintage, but cutting edge. Even the new songs started straying away from the original demos and took on a new life of their own. Songs from Kerry's past bands were brought back and given a new lease on life through the original spirit of the Crime Scene. But this ride ain't a vintage Cadillac. This 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.

The band has already started to record together and will be releasing new music directly to fans as it finished. Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene has both the sound and visuals of the best crime thrillers on film and video shoots are scheduled. Expect the unexpected. Expect to be involved. Live performances will start in November 2013 and continue throughout 2014. We want you to be "criminals" at every crime scene. Live shows will be interactive and include you, the fans because you are the reason that the music exists. You are the reason that this band has come together.

The Crime Scene is about to begin. Join us. Be a Criminal. It feels good to be bad...
