​              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 ...

John Writes:

Firstly , the date of our Crawdaddy Club Christmas Party has been changed from 13th December to Friday 6th December , all friends please amend your diaries, it's not a night to be missed!

It was a great night back at the Cross Lances Hounslow on 22nd June under new management and back supporting live music with a nice crowd of friends old and new, and  we had great fun at a really nice pub in Addletone. The Waggon And Horses on 28th June with a packed house. Absolutely standing room only at our second new venue at The George Inn in Walton-On-Thames on 5th July , lots of dancing and a great reception. We will be back there soon. It's also under new management, and has a "Best Thames Local" award and is now becoming a great live music venue. Finally on Friday 12th July we were back at our wonderful "home " pub The Barley Mow in Shepperton. As always a great night for everyone with John and his staff at the "Mow" , another packed house with all our friends.

Thanks to all our Crawdaddy friends who came (some to all 4 gigs! ). Next up for Crawdaddy Blues Band is a return to The George Inn in Walton on 24th August and The Barley Mow Shepperton on 6th September.
