Savoy Brown


Savoy Brown is booked to appear at the Yale Hotel in Vancouver, March 19, 2006. The Yale is western Canada’s premier blues music venue, promoting and presenting live blues for over two decades.

Legendary…. a blues-rock institution…. true innovators…. these are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past thirty years by music critics and fans.

One of the earliest of British blues bands, SAVOY BROWN helped launch the 60’s UK blues movement. The blues/rock sensation is formed of founding member, guitarist Kim Simmonds, drummer Mario Staiano and bassist Gerry Sorrentino.

The band celebrated their fortieth anniversary in 2005 by promoting a new CD ”You Should Have Been There!”, recorded live in Vancouver. The new CD has their trademark sound featuring new songs as well as their familiar classic hits such as Hellbound Train and Poor Girl. The legendary British group has a new CD slated for record stores later this year.
