The legendary Crawdaddy Club, home to The Stones, The Yardbirds, The Who [in those days the High Numbers], Long John Baldry [with Elton on piano] is re-opening at its old site in the Rugby Club at the Richmond Athletic Centre on the 2nd March After the move from the Station Hotel in Richmond, where its popularity demanded a larger venue, this setting provided the backdrop to the beginnings of the British Blues Boom and subsequent ‘blues invasion’ of the USA. It’s here that some of the most influential music in the history of the British music scene took hold; music that has gone on to shape the future of rock in the form of bands like Led Zeppelin, the Kinks and The Who. The Crawdaddy’s revival kicks of with the appearance of The Blue Bishops, whose lineup includes Jim Rodford from The Kinks and The Zombies, Geoff Grange, a former collaborator with Bill Wyman, Justin Hildreth, from Joan Armatrading and Thomas Dolby and Simon Burrett, who is currently working with John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick of Free and The Who. The Blue Bishops have featured live on Paul Jones’ Radio 2 Show and combine a grounding in the raw blues and R&B so typical of the club, with original, rocky edged songs from their highly acclaimed John Leckie and Stu Epps produced album ‘In the Red.’ 2nd March 2012 CRAWDADDY CLUB. Doors open at 7.30pm, Richmond Athletic Association ground, Twickenham Road, Richmond, Surrey TW9 2SF Tickets £10 on the door or £8 in advance from. www.ents24.com or www.wegottickets.com/event/148949For more information please contact Mike Rivers on 07879473848
