Fast Eddie & the Slowpokes return to the Naptown Bar-Bay-Q Contest & Music Festival in Crownsville, MD. Fast Eddie and the Slowpokes play Chicago, West Coast, Swing and Jump Blues peppered with Blue-Eyed Soul. We even throw in some Little Feat, Santana, Beatles, Stones and Bob Marley for good measure. The band features 'Fast' Eddie Crowley on harp and vocals, 'Long Lanky' Larry Younkins on guitar and vocals, the beautiful Scotty Chadwick on drums and goat sounds, James 'Cookie Monster' Cook on bass and yours truly, 'Dashing' Dave Gorozdos on keyboards and vocals.
The Parole Rotary Foundation sponsors the barBayq to raise money for children in need. In just two short years, they have provided grants to Anne Arundel Medical Center Pediatrics Emergency Inpatient Unit, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County, Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and numerous other local children's charities. This event spans two days and features over 40 bands on three stages, activities for the kids and, of course, some great barbecue from several local restaurants including Famous Dave's, Buffalo Wild Wings and Branded '72.
