Crawdaddy Club

Established in 1962 by Giorgio Gomelsky, the CRAWDADDY CLUB, Richmond was, alongside Eel Pie Island in Twickenham, and The Ealing Club on the forefront of Britain's R & B Music Scene. THE CRAWDADDY CLUB was the first residency for the Rolling Stones, and helped to launch the careers of such music legends as Eric Clapton with the Yardbirds, Paul Jones with Manfred Mann,Long John Baldry and Ray Davies before he started The Kinks, amongst many others. It was originally located at The Station Hotel opposite Richmond Station, but by 1963 outgrew the size of the venue and moved across to the Richmond Athletic Ground where it continued with the Yardbirds as the house band and with many other great acts from that fabulous era. It is fabulous this Historic Club haa been revived and runs regular live gigs with some of the best bands of today to keep the rich musical heritage of Richmond alive.
