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: Well, happy to say that on this Saturday 16th July we go again after the very sad Ukraine Benefit festival cancellation by the Crawdaddy Club last week and Crawdaddy Blues Band return to Hounslow Sports And Social Club, please do join us! £3 on door for non-members (press the buzzer) but club bar prices soon save you more ..... Tony and Mick are both fully recovered and Covid free and raring to go, and all our Crawdaddy friends are welcome to this friendly (air conditioned!) club just behind the Treaty Centre.
