CRYSTAL BETH & THE BOOM BOOM BAND – A ferociously powerful, psychedelic clarinet and primal scream fronted rock band – Crystal Beth* spits electric fire and cleansing water in dense currents of bethnic chants created to unblock your nervous system and drop that dopamine!

With the reflexes of a mongoose and the swagger of a leftist John Wayne, Crystal Beth spins her own universe of cathartic hardcore purge pop art punk, brandishing a sword of Boom Boom liberation – sweaty, trance inducing, heart-pouring – these are sonic cupcakes for your soul.

Known for pulling listeners in off the streets and into some deeply emotional release states, and dance-y good times, the project was described by one audience member as “what happens if you cross Frank Zappa, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Janice Joplin.”

The Boom Boom Band features Crystal Beth (aka: Beth Fleenor) on clarinet & vocals with Tristan Gianola (guitar), Michael Owcharuk (keyboard), Isaac Castillo (bass) and Adam Kozie (drums).

“You can find {Crystal Beth} fearlessly indulging her wildest creative inklings whenever she materializes in a musical forum…Crystal Beth & the Boom Boom Band falls somewhere between the grisly skronk-punk of Stickers and earthy freak-indie of tUnE-yArDs, but even fans of those left-of-center acts will be thrown for a loop. Wailing vocals not bound to any conventions but {her} own, paired with percussive “Bethnic chants,” are set over freely drawn jazz figures and world-y rhythms.” (the Stranger)

*Crystal Beth is a psychoactive stimulant that increases alertness, concentration, and energy, and in high doses, can induce euphoria, enhance self-esteem, and increase libido.
