50 YEAR “FIRST ALBUM” RELEASE ANNIVERSARY TOUR
Savoy Brown is still rocking the blues for more than 50 years, tours in 2017 celebrating
the 50th anniversary of the band’s first album release.
One of the very first bands from the UK to re-invent the blues in the mid-sixties (post-
The Rolling Stones), the group, led by guitarist Kim Simmonds, continues to perform,
record and influence today.
Modern rock music had its roots in 1960’s with bands, such as Savoy Brown, laying the
foundation by combining blues, rock and psychedelia. The band is a veritable history of
music, and musicians, with multiple former members going on to form bands such as
Foghat, or to play for groups such as Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath, Gary Moore, The
Kinks and many more.
