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 ...

Calling all our Crawdaddy friends, thanks to all who came to our visit to the Crawdaddy Club in Richmond for the Crawdaddy Christmas Party! What a great night enjoyed by all!
But bad news, I'm afraid about our gig at the Barley Mow in Shepperton on Friday 17th December. Due to Covid precautions and some self-isolating issues with band members and their families we reget that the band will not be able to play on that night. We are truly sorry that we cannot fulfil the booking, but can assure our friends that none of the band are very ill and we hope to be back for our first 2022 gigs in February. (watch this site for details soon). Thanks to out good friends the RIGHT TIMES band who have agreed at very short notice to stand in for us and are ready to rock the joint with 60's and 70's hits that I'm sure you will enjoy ..... so please do go along and support a great venue with great beer and great music!
