The Fat Dave Crime Wave

The Fat Dave Crime Wave

 Edmonton, Alberta, CAN

The Fuzz Kings will take you back to a time before the weight of the world crushed your soul, and before music was quantized and played by cyborg creatures from the future. We are here to remind you of a time when music was fun and when it was okay to dance and sing along.


The Fat Dave Crime Wave has been kicking ass & taking names in the Edmonton area for over a year now. Having never played the same venue twice as a constant endeavor to reach out to new listeners as well as being one of Edmontons most successful self-promoted bands, The Fat Dave Crime Wave has proven itself as a force to be reckoned with.

Drawing influences from Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar, Grady), Brian Setzer (Stray Cats, Brian Setzer Swing Orchestra), and the infamous Young brothers (of AC/DC), The Fat Dave Crime Wave has no shortage of rock & roll energy that is severely lacking in mainstream music today and is anxious to leave a scar on the face of the music industry next to those of their predecessors.

The music speaks for itself.

Keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground for the debut full length album from Edmontons own The Fat Dave Crime Wave entitled Brothers & Sisters, This is Rock & Roll which is set to release in March of 2007.


"Brothers & Sisters, This is Rock & Roll" is a 9-song album due out this spring, and our first as a band.
