Crooks

Crooks Alexandra Valenti
In Austin You Won’t Hear a Better Texas Country Band Than Crooks
Our guests today are a for real Texas-style hard rocking country band. Crooks are from Austin and were formed by Josh Mazur in 2007. They were originally a two piece that played a wider variety of folky country until honing in on their current harder honky-tonk sound. You’ll definitely hear that sound on their new album Wildfire, just out, and in our set today.
