SAVOY BROWN

Monday, May 13 at 7:30pm
Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox

“Legendary,” “a blues/rock institution,” and “true innovators” are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past 50 years by music critics and fans. One of the earliest British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 blues boom movement that brought blues back to the U.S.A., invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today. Tickets are $32 and $37. DETAILS
