Thanks to all our friends that helped make 14th July another great visit to the Barley Mow in Shepperton, our "home" pub now for the last 5 years or so ... and especially thanks to the new friends that found us via Lemonrock and made a special trip to see us from across London. It is lovely to be told by people who were really there in the 1960's clubs that we "bring it all back" for them. Also how "tight" our sound is, but I guess after 50 years we should be! We are back there on Saturday 23rd September for our "extra by demand" gig just a week after our next gig at the Cross Lances Hounslow on 16th September. Hope to see you there!
During the August break we posted posting some video clips from September 2016 made by Conrad Hafenrichter at our Staines Riverside gig - they are not on Youtube so we can't put them on our page here but you can see them on our facebook page link below - pleas visit and "Like " our page ...

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 ...
