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.
Founding member, Kim Simmonds, has a star on the Rock Walk of Fame and is recognized, not only by the blues fraternity, but also globally as one of the world's finest blues/rock players. Says Kim, "I enjoy keeping the band on the road, keeping the musicalive and giving people inspiration."
Many of the band's original songs continue to be played on radio, on TV and in movies.CSI, HBO's Vinyl, and a recent Jimi Hendix movie biopic, gave life once again to songs such as "Tell Mama" and "Train To Nowhere."
These songs, and others (from over forty album releases), all hit the Billboard Top 100 while albums such as "Hellbound Train" made the band a major concert headline act.
The band has played on all the world's finest stages, including the Royal Albert Hall,Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and both Fillmores.
Kim explained, "I still write new songs and rehearse everyday. I have a new album planned for 2017. If you don't keep finding the muse, you lose it."
The 2017 tour will feature songs from the first album, songs from the five-decade history of the band and songs to be included on the band's upcoming album release later thisyear.

Described by John Sinkevics of Local Spins as “genre-melding indie-folk,” The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) exhibit “a musical and lyrical sophistication that outstrips most mainstream bands.”
From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.
After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats that include Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Sollee, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, and Joan Baez.
In 2015, they scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux, and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble, while touring the US extensively.
In June of 2016, they released a brand new, self-produced EP called Parking Lot, of which the single, “Michigan and Again,” went viral.
They’ve kicked off 2017 as major label artists, having signed a record deal with Sony Masterworks to release a full-length album in August.

“Stunning, an unforgettable experience watching these two girls play a sea of instruments (twelve to be exact), moving effortlessly from one to the other, while entertaining the masses with their wit, haunting harmonies, and catchy melodies, they are truly unforgettable.” – Grand Rapids Press
“In performance, they can rock. Their live act is frequently electric. The stage patter and presence is polished but real. They switch instruments before the song they have finished sinks in. A 45 minute set passes like a train. They already have more good originals than most hit acts, and their tastefully eccentric list of covers, well… covers the gamut. They pack performing space with a multi-generational mix any act would beg for.” – Jim Linderman, Grammy Award Winning Blogger and Author
“Musicality, originality, and melodic beauty combine with a welcome, and unexpected, bite to clever lyrics. Such talent, wit, and enthusiasm are hard to find anywhere. A duo giving an edge to folk with unique instrumentation is as close as I can come to describing them. A must hear! Songwriters need look no further to find a new pairing to be jealous of, especially with such a bright future ahead of them.” – Matt Mansfield, Z93 Radio
