Barley Mow - Thanks to all who came!
It was a full house at The Barley Mow on 17th November for the band's last visit in 2017. Best crowd of the year so far with lots of new friends as well as our great regular following . Thanks to everyone who came along, and thanks for all the kind words and praise. Back in Shepperton in February 2018, see you there we hope!
Hounslow Sport and Social Club, 16th December.
John is having a shoulder operation on 20th November and will still be in a wedge sling on 16th December, but we are confident that he will OK to sit and do the singing and harmonica (albeit with an unamplified "acoustic" sound) at Hounslow for our last gig of 2017. In case he needs a mid - evening break we are chatting to some special guests who may come along to do a cameo spot to help John out ... watch this space for the latest news!
It is a private members club butall Crawdaddy friends are welcome . The address is 60 Grove Road, Hounslow, just press intercom on door for entry. Very Small (£3 last time) cover charge for non-members but very low club bar prices for all. Do join us for our "Christmas Party" gig !

BAND BIOGRAPHY AND HISTORY OF CRAWDADDY In the "More About Us" section John has added a band biography and an article on the history of the word itself, the songs about it and the historic British Crawdaddy Club. These are the first two of three articles .... more to follow on the British Blues Scene.......
Crawdaddy Blues Band try to recapture the sounds and atmosphere of British Blues and R and B clubs of the 1960's. They were formed in 1984 as a reunion of four Chiswick friends who first met in the 1960s, and witnessed those early gigs at clubs like the Crawdaddy in Richmond, Eel Pie Island in Twickenham and around the West London scene. They also played themselves in covers bands in West London's clubs and pubs right through the 1960's and 1970's,
A couple of personnel changes and more than 30 years on they are still true to the old British R and B sound, either as a straight Blues band or with their "party set " which mixes blues and R and B standards with pop covers of the bands that all started in the clubs. Bands like the early Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Kinks, Animals, Them, Spencer Davis, mid 60's Blues Boom sounds like Fleetwood Mac, Jon Mayall and Eric Clapton, and also just a taste of the late 60's Blues Rock of Cream, Free and Led Zeppelin ...
