The Blue Crawdads prove that getting the blues can be an awful lot of fun. The Kentucky-based band brings a unique mix of high energy blues, roots, and rock & roll to the stage, performing original music as well as covers of blues and rock artists ranging from Blind Willie McTell to Muddy Waters to Morphine.
Guitarists Derryl Harper and Andy Messer have worked together in eclectic bands including Seventh Hour, the Horizontal Blues Band, and Jim Garrett & The Unworried Minds. Bassist Jesse Barton got his start in a rock cover band called The Management, and currently plays bluegrass with The Davis Benders and a variety of musical genres with David Bowlin & Miles Ahead. Born in Washington, D.C., drummer Keith Greene has been a lifelong musician, playing for the Go-Go band High Energy, Christian rock group SEED, R&B artist Donnell Dantzler, singer-songwriter Jeff Zitrain, Black Repertory Theatre in Berkeley, California, and blues rock artist Sunny Gunn.
The Blue Crawdads have recently released their first EP, Bluefield. Now they’re ready to rock your juke joint, house party, barbeque festival, nightclub, or theatre.
