BAND NAME REGISTRATION...

 PLEASE NOTE: "Crawdaddy Blues Band" is our registered band name in UK and USA (Details can be  found on bandname.com and archived in the British Library and the U.S. Library of Congress). The word "Crawdaddy" itself  is a traditional US name for a Crayfish and as such is in the public domain.  It is not to be confused with any other current or former bands, venues, functions  or restaurants worldwide called "Crawdaddy", "Crawdaddies" "Crawdaddys" or "Crawdad" or other derivative of the word.                  Our name is derived from our local 60's club the original Crawdaddy in Richmond (West London) but we have no direct connection with the current club in Richmond or any of the other clubs, restaurants or bands of that name in Southend,  Tokyo, Dublin, the U.S.A. or anywhere else. We are not aware of any other band of that name still in existence that was founded before Crawdaddy Blues Band in 1984.
