Legendary… a blues/rock institution… true innovators. These are just some of the ways music critics and fans have described Savoy Brown over the past 49 years.
The band were founded in 1966, and this short tour marks the eve of their 50th Anniversary. Still led by founding guitarist Kim Simmonds, Savoy Brown were among the first wave of British Blues bands. But they are better known internationally for launching the Blues Boom movement that brought Blues music back to the USA.
Their success in 1970s USA was enormous. “Tell Mama”, “Street Corner Talking”, “All I Can Do Is Cry” and the band’s funky re-make of the Motown classic, “I Can’t Get Next To You”, took the band to platinum status and placed them in front of wildly enthusiastic rock audiences in arenas all over the world.
From Legendary London night clubs in 1966 to headlining the world’s most famous venues, including Carnegie Hall, Fillmore’s East and West, Cobo Hall, Savoy Brown has done it all. They continue to tour worldwide they give a glimpse into the past and also inspire new listeners with their personal brand of Rocking Boogie, Blues and Rock.
