The best kept secret in music


"Matt Arant"

“Some ome of the heaviest rockabilly punk I've ever heard.The singer crooned out
some brash, bluesy lines before howling like a dog and quivering on the floor, Jim
Morrison-style. These guys had the fans bouncing to their 50s throwback jams.”

- Nuvo Newsweekly

"Danica Johnson"

“These guys are the obvious choice of opener for the Reverend Horton Heat.” - Nuvo Newsweekly

"Angela Smith-Johnson"

“That bunch is like the Stray Cats on acid, and they are, if nothing else, fun to watch.”
- Nuvo Newsweekly

Feeling a bit camera shy


Formed in late 2003, The CryptoKats have quickly
established themselves as a top-tier act in the
Midwest’s growing Psychobilly movement. Although
a relatively new band, The CryptoKats are
leveraging a collection of veteran musicians to
provide a highly energetic and entertaining live

To date, the band has been able to bridge the gaps
of Rockabilly, Punk, Metal, and Garage Rock fans
alike. Make no mistake, the band is a Psychobilly
outfit that has been described a a bizarre mixture
of The Stray Cats and Eddie Cochran, topped off
with a fuel tank filled with nitromethane.
