Ruf recording artists, Savoy Brown, are still rocking … 50 plus years after the band formed in London, England in 1965.
One of the first bands from the UK, after The Rolling Stones, to re-invent the blues in the mid-sixties, Savoy Brown, led by guitarist Kim Simmonds, continues to perform, record and influence today.
Modern rock music had its roots in the 1960’s while bands, such as Savoy Brown, helped lay 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, The Kinks and many more.
Founding member, Kim Simmonds, has a star on the Rock Walk of Fame and is recognized globally as one of the world’s finest blues/rock players. Says Kim, “I enjoy entertaining, keeping the music alive and giving people inspiration”.
