THANKS FROM CRAWDADDY TO ALL WHO CAME TO OUR SPECIAL FUNDRAISERS FOR JAYDEN
Thanks to everyone who came and donated to our Bagster House gig, to David Byng's superb RnB DJing , his family, Ann Shipman and all the other helpers and organisers and Bagster staff too. Special thanks and love to Mud Morganfield (Muddy Waters Jnr) for your kind audio message from Chicago played on the night and sent to Jayden, and Jimmy Redhead, "Matchbox" drummer and Jayden's Grandad for his speech and guesting on a couple of good old rockers.
Thanks also to our Crawdaddy friends who came from far and wide to our gig at the Barley Mow Shepperton for our second fundraiser where we donated our fee and took round the famous "Silver Top Hat" which was brought back for one night only.... Thanks to the staff and customers who gave so generously and to John the Guv'nor who augmented our total with a very generous donation of his own. Thanks to Fluff and Mick and our other friends from Brentford FC Jazz Club who gathered in people from The Cambridge Folk Festival, Eel Pie Club and The Barnes Blues Club to swell the numbers - what a great night!

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 ...

As many of you know, Crawdaddy Blues Band started when Paul and Mick re - formed our old band in 1984 to take us back to the 60’s when we played covers of the stuff we saw at clubs like the Crawdaddy, where the Stones and Yardbirds started. You can imagine how proud and excited we are that re-opened original Crawdaddy Club have booked us to play on two dates later this year. The first is a special private function for a tour party of 50 Belgian Rolling Stones fans who will be visiting the Eel Pie Island Museum and Crawdaddy Club on Monday 24th September as part of their trip to 60's Stones venues. Crawdaddy Blues Band will be providing a special 60's R and B scene evening with plenty of "early Stones". Sadly a "closed" gig but a good rehearsal for us for the big one
