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 ...

Crawdaddy BLUES BAND
What a great gig with a packed house at the Magpie and Crown on Saturday 11th September, and lovely to meet loads of Brentford FC fans there after the game.
Next we have another favourite venue with a special and friendly crowd, Hounslow Sports and Social Club on 13th October! Please join us for our first gig in Hounslow since before lockdown, with a couple more gigs to follow during 2022 we hope. Dancers and 60's fans all welcome, it will be a rockin' party set from Crawdaddy.
The club is at 60 Grove Road behind the Treaty Centre and there is a small gate charge for non-members which is soon saved by the very low club prices at the bar. Just buzz at the door for admission, all Crawdaddy friends are very welcome on the night.
CRAWDADDY BLUES BAND GIGS UPDATE
After 18 months of gig-free lockdown Crawdaddy Blues Band have had a great start to 2021 with four gigs in four weeks! Thanks to everyone who came to the brilliant Phoenix Festival on 22nd August at the legendary Crawdaddy Club in Richmond (and raised lots of money for the NHS Healthcare Workers Foundation), the Richmond Riverside Festival on 28th August and our return to the the Barley Mow on 3rd September to a packed house and a great night was had by all. A new venue (to us) gave Crawdaddy a storming welcome on Saturday 11th September. The Magpie And Crown in Brentford was packed out and it was great to meet so many Brentford FC fans and get such a great reception. Looking forward to more dates there in future, watch this space.
