Welcome to CrawdaddysRock.com
Long established in Melbourne, the band loves to create a fun time for everyone involved (including the band!). From their spiritual base at a Hawthorn wine bar, and more recently at the Elgin Inn Hotel, the band is equally at home on stages of all sizes throughout Victoria.
We acknowledge the sad passing this week (30 January) of Alan Gibson, host of many Crawdaddys gigs at Gibson's Wine Bar, Hawthorn. “Gibbo” was a keen and long-standing supporter of various bands, including the Crawdaddys. The wine bar was the scene of many great gigs, but was also a popular venue every day and a focal point of Hawthorn life for many of us. More posts of acknowledgement and photos of Alan over the years are on our Facebook site.
We are very sorry to have to announce the sudden passing on 23 February of Don Smith, our longstanding bassist and core Crawdaddy. Our thoughts are with Traecey and their boys. The gig on Sunday 25 February at the Elgin Inn will proceed - as Don would have wanted. Andy Russell, who has filled in the last couple of months, will be on bass.
