Crash Vegas was a Canadian folk rock band which formed in 1988, and achieved moderate success in the early 1990s.
The band was formed by Michelle McAdorey and Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo in 1988, who were also in a romantic relationship. They had met in the late 1970s, and McAdorey had later appeared in the music video for Blue Rodeo's song Try. The two could not agree on a name for the band, originally selecting Giant Tambourine.
