Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Dan Wolff & The Muddy Crows
Recommended if you like: John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Tom Petty
Story behind your band/artist name: We liked the idea of a band name in the form of having a distinctive THE followed by an adjective and then a noun- much like The Rolling Stones or The Traveling Wilburys. But, to emphasize our folkier roots we wanted a rustic, even gritty, name. So, after considering The Crooked Crows, The Rusty Buckets, and The Muddy Boots- and realizing that most of these were already taken- we combined the more unique elements of the name and became THE MUDDY CROWS.
Band Members: Dan Wolff - Lead Vocals/Guitar | Steve Mead - Keyboard/Vocals | Eric Grabow - Bass | Dan Perriello - Drums/Vocals | Tom O'Donnell - Lead Guitar | Tiffany Shanta - Violin
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : While none of us are originally from this region, we all live in the area: some in Maryland, some in Virginia. And though only one actually lives in DC proper, we have always considered ourselves to be a "DC band."
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: *Much like the politicians on the hill, our band is comprised of representatives from various states including Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, Virginia, and Oregon.
*We have played a venue called The Bayou, which sits on Pennsylvania Avenue, several times. Each time we tweeted @POTUS, letting the first family know that we were playing, literally just down the street. Disappointingly, they never showed.
*Last year, our band took the stage at the National Capital Barbecue Battle. A few hotdog pieces still remained on-stage, courtesy of the Nathan's 2016 Hot Dog Eating Contest, which featured the world record holder Joey Chestnut annihilating 73 1/2 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.
