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 ...

British R and B Club
sounds of the 60's
A good night was enjoyed by all at the Barley Mow on 22nd April the pub filled over the first hour and ended up really rocking with lots of dancing and joining in, what a great crowd! For the first time in a couple of months both Paul and Tony were well and available to perform which means the full Crawdaddy classic lineup was there and the real 60's West London R&B sound with some old favourites of course and also a few we haven't done for a while. Next up The Magpie And Crown in Brentford High Street on Saturday 28th May , great guvnor and staff, great beer and a great crowd, please do join us and our Crawdaddy friends! Thanks to Margaret Sollors for the picture below from The Barley Mow. See you all at the Magpie and Crown on the 28th May!
