Professor Louie and the Crowmatix!
Tannery Pond Center (TPC) is pleased to bring back Professor Louie and the Crowmatix to its stage, this time for a Veterans Day concert. Once again, TPC honors vets by offering free admission to this rock’n’roll concert. The Woodstock, NY based Crowmatix is an all-star band whose members have toured and recorded with Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and The Band. Louie, who got his nickname from Rick Danko, produced and played on The Bands hit version of Bruce Springsteen’s Atlantic City.
The Cromatix headlined the 2016 Veterans Day concert at the Homer Center for the Arts and played at the 2017 Watchfire event at the New York State Fairgrounds, which drew close to twenty thousand people.
Professor Louie and the Crowmatix tour the country and the world extensively, often doing shows with The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Commander Cody, and Guy Davis. The band did many tours with the late Buckwheat Zydeco. Their current CD, Crowin the Blues is steadily climbing the contemporary blues charts. Louie also received an international award for an original composition Melody of Peace, performed with the Prague Radio Symphony in the Czech Republic. The band has been inducted into the Canadian Blues Hall of Fame and the NY Blues Hall of Fame.
TPC has dedicated this concert to Veterans and is providing free admission to all area military veterans.Professor Louie has created a strong relationship with veterans, primarily through his award-winning work at the Veterans Initiative program at the Common Ground on the Hill Festival in Westminster, MD. The veterans songwriting and poetry has opened my heart, ears, and eyes, says Louie. Working with them in an artful, creative way has been quite rewarding, especially when they are performing their work to thunderous applause from an audience.
