From “Aqua Velva and suede shoes” to “track pants and rubber boots.” That’s the transition made by the newly sobered up subject of today’s track “Uncle Tony” by Paradise band White Collar Criminals. This rock trio formed in 2011 and consists of Jordan Doody (guitar/vocals), Mike Boone (bass) and Keegan Power(drums). Blending straight-up, gritty rock n’ roll with a touch of ska and dance hall, the White Collar Criminals specialize in catchy, hook driven songs, which, according to the lads, are designed to “get you on your feet”. This past February, the band released it’s debut three song EP showcasing their sound and made it available for download on Bandcamp.
You can experience White Collar Criminals live tonight (Friday, Oct 12th) at The Levee along with two other high energy and equally as dance-able bands, Baytown and Young Manics. And as if the great music wasn’t reason enough to show up, you can get 3 beers for $5 until 12 AM, so get down there early.
