Germantown: Where Charm City Meets the Big Easy
Baltimore-bred Crawdadies will offer Germantown a taste of Mardi Gras at BlackRock Saturday.
Baltimore-based Crawdaddies will bring their Cajun-tinged tunes to BlackRock on Saturday
The five-piece band—whose lineup includes 2008 Emmy-award recipient Kraig Greff, a pianist and accordian player—is set to perform at the arts venue on Saturday.
The Crawdaddies draw influence from Louisiana’s Cajun sound, with hints of roots rock and Americana. Or as BlackRock describes them:
“Consummate headliners, the eclectic, good-time spirit of their set has allowed The Crawdaddies to share the stage with a wide range of artists including Etta James, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Trombone Shorty, Dr. John, Charlie Daniels, Last Train Home, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Cliff, Joan Jett, The Spinners, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Terrance Simien, G. E. Smith, Marshall Crenshaw, The Young Dubliners, Buckwheat Zydeco, Reel Big Fish and many more.”
Tickets cost $23 and $25 and can be purchased by phone (240-912-1058, noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday), at the theater’s box office and online.
