A Minnesota Band Spotlight – Crow [VIDEO]

Crow, YouTube

Crow, a great band from the Minneapolis area that not only won Minnesota Music Awards for all the members of the band for each individual instrument but have achieved Hall of Fame status in both the Minnesota Rock/Country Hall of Fame 2005 and the Iowa Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 (Arnold’s Park, Iowa).

The band was a major musical influence in Iowa which aided them getting into the Iowa Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

The original band members were Larry Wiegand (bass/vocals), Dick Wiegand (guitar), Dave Wagner (vocals), Dave “Kink” Middlemist (Hammond organ/vocals and Harry Nehls (drums/vocals). The band was known as ‘South 40′, later Denny Craswell (drums) joined up and they changed their name to ‘Crow’.

I saw them at then ‘Popeye’s’ in Stillwater, Mn. (not to be confused with the chicken fast food place) many years ago as they laid down their Top 40 hits including, “Evil Woman” (1969, reaching #16 on Billboards Top 40), “Slow Down (1970, Don’t Try To Lay No Boogie-Woogie on The King of Rock N’ Roll)” and “Cottage Cheese” (1970). Got to love the horns, and the explosive sound they add.

Crow called it quits in 1972 and reformed in 1988, to my knowledge the band travels and tours to this day.
