Known as The Piano Prince of New Orleans, Davell Crawford is an all-around musical sensation as a pianist, singer, songwriter, and performer. Raised in the church, Davell is the grandson of the rhythm & blues star James "Sugar Boy" Crawford, who wrote the New Orleans hit song “Jockomo,” later known as “Iko Iko.”
Davell has been playing piano since he was seven years old and although he didn't know his grandfather was a musician at the time, the elder Crawford gave him a keyboard when he was 11, and he soon first toured Europe in his early teens. Like so many New Orleans musicians, Crawford brings a synthesis of styles to his playing, weaving together funk, gospel, and R&B to his piano playing, songwriting and singing. A Steinway endorsed pianist, Davell has released more than seven albums since 1995 on imprints such as Rounder Records, Basin Street Records, and more. Bill Taylor from Blues Access proclaims that, “Plain and simple, Davell Crawford is one of the most talented musicians alive.”
Today marks the Birthday of Allen Toussaint: Regarded as one of popular music's great backroom figures, Allen Toussaint's body of work as a songwriter is one of the most unsung influences on American music, specifically R&B, from the 1950s through the early 2000s. Among the hundreds of recordings he produced, some of his most popular are hits by fellow New Orleanian Dr. John and famed soul-funk outfit Labelle.
Join us tonight for an intimate evening as Davell Crawford presents a special Birthday Tribute to the late, great Allen Toussaint, featuring: Davell Crawford - piano, vocals Renard Poché - guitar Chris Severin - bass Reggie Toussaint - percussion Herman LeBeaux - drums
