Professor Louie & The Crowmatix

“The Music of THE BAND…And much more!” featuring Professor Louie & The Crowmatix

They tore it up a handful of years back at the Abilene Roots-Americana Tent of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival ….get ready for it to happen again…up close & personal in the intimate surrounding of Abilene Bar and Lounge.

If you’re a fan of The Band, Levon Helm, The Felice Brothers…don’t miss this one!!!

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 U.S. and worldwide, including three times on The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise.

Professor Louie collaborated with The Band for over 16 years and produced their 3 comeback CD’s in the 90’s- “Jericho,” “High On The Hog” and “Jubilation.” Louie played on and produced their hit song “Atlantic City.” Louie has produced and performed with Graham Parker, Commander Cody, Guy Davis, Buckwheat Zydeco, New Riders Of The Purple Sage and many more well-known artists.

“Pure proof The Band wouldn’t have had a 90’s career bounce if Louie didn’t have his hand on the wheel.” –Chris Spector, Editor and Publisher, Midwest Record
