Founded in 1995 on the premise of "why not, it might just work," The Crawdaddies' lively, nontraditional approach to zydeco has earned them a strong grassroots following across the nation. Combining vocals, guitars, washboards and more, they are a regular fixture on national college, festival and theater circuits and have performed everywhere from the W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival in Herderson, Ky. to Summerfest in Ann Arbor, Mich.
The Crawdaddies have won numerous accolades, including multiple JPF Music Awards for 2010 album Spice It Up, a 2013 first place ranking on the Reverbnation Baltimore Blues Charts and most recently, a GOLD Starmaker Music Award for their song "The Difference" in 2014. In addition to headlining their own shows, The Crawdaddies have shared the stage with musical legends like Etta James, Buddy Guy, Terrance Simien, Reel Big Fish and more.
