This event has been and gone.
Crawdaddy Blues Band try to recapture the sounds and atmosphere of the 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 Central and 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.
The Crawdaddy Blues Band are still true to the old British R and B club sound, mixing blues and R and B standards from artists like Muddy Waters Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley with pop covers of the bands that all started in the British clubs. Bands like Blues Incorporated, the early Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Kinks, Animals, Small Faces, Them and Spencer Davis, mid 60's Blues Boom sounds like the Long John Baldry bands, Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall and Eric Clapton, and also just a taste of the late 60's Blues Rock of Cream, Free, and Led Zeppelin when the mood takes them!
The band played at this year's Richmond Riverside Music Festival and went down a treat.They consider it an honour to be here, and guarantee that it's going to be a great Crawdaddy party night - come and join them for a real blast from the 60's R and B club past .. don't miss it!
