Professor Louie has been active in the music scene for the past three decades, ever since he worked with legendary rockers The Band. Now he and the Crowmatix are coming to Steel City Coffee House on Saturday March 18th as part of their "Crowin' The Blues" tour.
On "Crowin' The Blues," The Crowmatix dig down into the origin of many great Blues songs from the Texas Rhythm & Blues style of I'm Gonna Play The Honky Tonks by Marie Adams (Peacock) to High Heel Sneakers that is a Rock 'n' Roll standard. The Crowmatix combined the Soul tune, On Broadway with a blues by Jimmy Reed for their arrangement of Bright Lights, Big City. They remember Big Bill Broonzy recording his hit Why Did You Do That To Me and the shuffle blues by Elmore James, Fine Little Mama.
"Levon Helm taught us Jimmy McCracklin's hit I Finally Got You and a gut wrenching blues by Jimmy Rogers That's Alright," said Louie. "The Crowmatix gave our best with original blues Love Is Killing Me, Blues & Good News, Prisoner Of Your Sound and we leave off with a nod to our friend Buckwheat Zydeco with our Blues For Buckwheat. Many performers walked the fence between the straight path and the Honky Tonk Chitlin' circuit lifestyle and recorded Gospel songs, we chose I'm On My Way."
Crowin' The Blues," their 13th studio CD, was recorded in three days live in the studio. Grammy nominated PL&C from Woodstock, were inducted into Blues Hall Of Fame, New York Chapter and hold a permanent place in the Canada South Blues Museum.
The Crowmatix are: Professor Louie (vocals, accordion, piano, Hammond organ, keyboards); Miss Marie (vocals, percussion, piano); Gary Burke (drums, percussion); Frank Campbell (bass, vocals); John Platania (electric /acoustic guitars); Josh Colow (lead guitar) special guest Michael Falzarano (guitar).
We got a sneak peek inside The Foodery, which is currently under construction inside the old dollar store just across from Borough Hall. Our contact told us that they were aiming to open in early April.
We were also told that The Foodery will be dog friendly with an outdoor seating area, and that aside from the massive selection of beer, they'll have a great selection of wine and a coffee bar.
FUN FACT: The Foodery, which first opened in 1972 in Philadelphia, was the originator of the mixed six pack.
Sly Fox Brewery has been a valuable ally to the Schuylkill River Trail and the surrounding natural environment, and advocates of the river are taking notice.
The Patch reports:
The Schuylkill River National and State Heritage Area will honor the brewery at their annual dinner, An Evening for the Schuylkill River, with their Schuylkill River Legacy Award.
A big part of Sly Fox's contribution has been through the SRT Ale, named after the trail which currently runs uninterrupted from south Philadelphia to near Limerick, and includes multiple stretches thereafter. Ultimately, organizers hope that the entire 130-mile stretch of the multi-use trail will be contiguous.
In addition to donating a portion SRT Ale proceeds to the trail, Sly Fox has also helped organize cleanups, parties, activities, and other events to promote the trail.
"The Sly Fox partnership bolsters our efforts to encourage recreation, build and improve the SRT and engage new audiences in our events," said Tim Fenchel, SRHA Interim Executive Director. "We are proud to recognize Sly Fox for their meaningful contribution."
Past winners of the Schuylkill River Legacy Award include Exelon Corporation management and DCNR Secretary Cindy Dunn.
Sly Fox said that their SRT ALE, a beer with a local alcohol level, is popular with trail users and athletes.
