SHEPPERTON - Thanks to all who came!
A great return to the Barley Mow on Friday 16th February, thanks as ever for everyone who came. A big turnout yet again and lots of old friends back there for this one too. Thanks to David Byng for the photo and all the kind words (including "Great British R and B Band" - Wow!) Thank you we really do appreciate it. David is a Rock n Roll Historian and ex-Lubbock, Texas D.J . now living here in the UK - check out his historic interviews with Buddy Holly's wife and parents on Youtube. There are also a couple of video clips of us from Friday on his Facebook page. We will be back at the Barley Mow for our next public gig in May.

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 ...
