PROFESSOR LOUIE & THE CROWMATIX
Professor Louie & The Crowmatix, Woodstock, NY - The group came into existence preparing songs for Aaron Professor Louie Hurwitz’s studio productions for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame group The Band and also solo projects for Rick Danko and Garth Hudson. When The Band dissolved in 2000, Professor Louie & The Crowmatix started touring and recording their own music. They have six studio CD’s and two live recordings on The Woodstock Records label. In spring 2008, they released “As the Crow Flies”. This CD has new originals and songs from their previous recordings which were most requested by fans and radio promoters.
Professor Louie & the Crowmatix have the distinct honor of being the first artists to have a live concert recording released by The New York State Museum entitled “The Spirit Of Woodstock”. Their CD “Century Of The Blues” averaged # 20 for six months on the Americana Radio Roots charts and their music has consistently stayed on these charts for the past eight years.
