Savoy Brown

Thursday, February 6

In the pre-Zeppelin days of the late 1960s, a Houston band called Josephus drew a considerable following in the emerging hippie community, their primary attraction being a cover of a 20-minute saga called "Savoy Brown Boogie." Josephus vanished, but Savoy Brown soldiers on with its brand of amped-up boogie blues. Still led by Welsh guitar virtuoso Kim Simmonds, whose name comes up alongside those of Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor and Peter Green in discussions of the most accomplished guitarists of the golden age of British blues, the band recently signed with Blind Pig Records and is touring in support of its 30th album, Strange Dreams. The current show covers new material and a cross-section of the band's '70s hits such as "Tell Mama" and "Louisiana Blues."
