By most accounts, The CryptoKats are known as a fierce rock and roll outfit that smears the lines of psychobilly, rockabilly, blues, punk, and good old fashioned garage rock. Bring your dancin' shoes, your sing-along chops, and your black jack. You will need them all.

Biography

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
show.

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.
