Crawdaddy  BLUES BAND 

​              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 ... 

What a great night was had by all at the Turk's Head on 13th November, we hope for more at this excellent venue in 2022.

Next up is the biggest Crawdaddy night of the year, our visit to the Crawdaddy Club in Richmond for the Crawdaddy Christmas Party! This is the legendary venue where the Rolling Stones were resident in 1963 and The Yardbirds (with Eric Clapton) in 1964 and the very best of British Blues and R&B bands played right through the 1960's. Crawdaddy Blues Band used to visit there in their youth and it is where where the covers in our current act have their roots. Advance tickets will soon be on sale, and we will also put travel directions on here ... watch this space. If you only come to one of our gigs this year, this is the one! More details to follow .......
