Official Website of The Accounting Crows
Crews, Crows & Croquettes

Every "over 50" band of rockin' CPAs needs that extra "something" to add some musical spice to the mix. So here they are, the "Spice Girls" of accounting, the "Supremes" of Motown East (Hartford), the only halfway-decent female vocalists we could find who would sing in exchange for free tax preparation services, our favorite "chick" singers (for a band of old roosters), the one and only quasi famous "Crowquettes"

Just read our band bio and you'll understand why we always need some heavy-duty musical stand-ins when last minute gig plans go awry. We never know when Reed is has not-for-profit audit overseas in Outer Slabovia, or Mike has to furnish his board of directors with a 50-page cost containment report requiring him to look up the word "containment" in the dictionary, or John has to be billable for a change, or Mark has to pretend to do something important for the CSCPA, or Alan has to go to the bathroom. Accordingly, The Accounting Crows need either real CPAs or real musicians (as there's no such thing as a real "CPA musician") to be available when a band member's schedule conflicts with any one of the two important gigs we get each year. So, here they are, those ready, willing and able (for a fee, of course) friends who we affectionately call "Crows", amongst other things:

Given the enormity of our business affairs (The Accounting Crows are ranked #497 in touring revenues of Fortune 500's list of CPA Rock Bands), we find ourselves in constant need of support services, both on tour and back at corporate headquarters. Whether it's hauling Marshall stacks or shameless self-promotion, our need to have our egos stroked is immeasurable. So to those tireless individuals who find they have nothing else better to do with their time, we respectfully dedicate this website section to our "Crews":
