These are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past forty years by music critics and fans. One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA 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. The band recorded their first singles for Mike Vernons Purdah label in 1966 and quickly followed up with the landmark album Shakedown. Singer Chris Youlden joined the band in 1968 and many classic records appeared with songs such as "Im Tired" and "Louisiana Blues" becoming radio staples. Blues-rock and boogie music always was the bands calling card and they captured, forever, the spirit of the music on the live side of A Step Further (1969) with a twenty-minute boogie "The Savoy Brown Boogie" dedicated to fans in Detroit. By 1971, Youlden had departed on a solo career and band members Dave Peverett, Roger Earle, and Tony Stevens had left to form their own group Foghat. Simmonds rebuilt the band using former members of the blues band Chicken Shack and vocalist Dave Walker. That year, Street Corner Talking brought the band its best chart success up to that date. "Tell Mama", "Street Corner Talking", "All I Can Do Is Cry" and the bands funky re-make of the Motown classic "I Cant Get Next To You", took the band to platinum status and placed them in front of wildly enthusiastic rock audiences in arenas all over the world. So, from Londons Soho night clubs in 1966 to headlining the worlds most famous venues (Carnegie Hall, Fillmores East and West, Cobo Hall, etc.), you have Savoy Brown doing it all. The band continues to tour worldwide and they give a glimpse into the past, but also inspire new listeners with their personal brand of rocking boogie, blues and rock.*Seating Disclaimer* The Redstone Room at River Music Experience is a standing room only concert venue.

    Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys Michigan's bluegrass and Americana success storyDescriptionMichigan-born Lindsay Lou Rilko, of Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys, has the kind of voice you can get lost in. One part jazz singer, effortlessly transitioning octaves, one part blues shouter, soaring over the band like a clarion call, and one part folk singer, rousing them all together in song. The instruments and the bedrock of the band may come from bluegrass, but the music that Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys present can best be described as Americana. This is music thats caught between the pull of the past and the push of the beckoning future, ready to leap forward bursting with new ideas and youthful energy. Says Popmatters: "The catchy and clever riffs recall the sharp 'popgrass' stylings of groups like The Punch Brothers and Joy Kills Sorrow."
