British R and B Club
sounds of the 60's
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 CLUB 9th DEC. CHRISTMAS PARTY - What a great night!
Crawdaddy Blues Band played at the Annual party for the third time at the legendary Crawdaddy Club in Richmond where the Rolling Stones and Clapton's Yardbirds had their first residencies back in the early 60's . A full house rocked and danced and joined in until midnight. Thanks to all the club regulars and our band fans and friends who made it a memorable night for all, and thanks to Mike and all his volunteers and helpers who keep this great club supporting live music for all of us!
