Our Rap Sheet
Best watch out...the boys have escaped again. Disguised as musicians and armed with a weird collection of antique musical instruments, our favorite cons are on the loose again!
While these "musical delinquents" continue to evade the authorities, we hope you'll be captured by their unique brand of hot jazz, novelty numbers and general disregard of acceptable behavior.
Until they're once again behind bars, keep your doors locked, your shades drawn, guard your wives and daughters, and your phone ready to dial 911.
