Professor Louie & The Crowmatix
Woodstock - New York - United States

“Crowin’ The Blues” is Professor Louie & The Crowmatix’s thirteenth studio album and was recorded in three days live in the studio including vocals and solos. On the album, Professor Louie & 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 has become 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.’ We remember Big Bill Broonzy by 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 jukebox hit, ‘I Finally Got You’ and PL&C selected a gut bucket blues by Jimmy Rogers, ‘That’s Alright.’ The Crowmatix gave their best efforts with original blues, ‘Love Is Killing Me’, ‘Prisoner Of Your Sound,’ ‘Blues & Good News’ and finish with a nod to their friend Buckwheat Zydeco with ‘Blues For Buckwheat.’ Many performers walked the fence between the straight path and the Honky Tonk Chitlin’ circuit lifestyle and recorded gospel songs, PL&C chose ‘I’m On My Way.’

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) and special guest Michael Falzarano (guitar).

Professor Louie & The Crowmatix began as the studio backing band for Aaron “Professor Louie’s” musical productions for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, The Band. Rick Danko christened him Professor Louie due to his work and friendship with The Band.

This Grammy-nominated Woodstock, NY group plays 150 shows a year in the US and worldwide. They have performed at the Thunder Bay, London, Windsor, Tondor, Falcon Ridge Festivals, Sellersville Theater, BB Kings, NYC, House Of Blues, LA. Professor Louie has performed twice on The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise.

Professor Louie & The Crowmatix repertoire is steeped in rock ‘n’ roll, blues, gospel and American roots music. They have 13 studio recordings on the Woodstock Records label. In 2016 their album, “Music From Hurley Mountain,” was voted best concept record & group by Radio Crystal Blue. PL&C have been inducted into Blues Hall Of Fame, New York Chapter and hold a permanent place in the Canada South Blues Museum.
