I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Four decades after its debut album, Savoy Brown is still flying the banner of British blues rock, recording and drawing enthusiastic crowds. Among the best-loved, most- respected and longest-running of its genre, they own one of the magical names in blues-rock.

Of all the great British blues guitarists who started out around the same time, Savoy Brown's Kim Simmonds has quietly remained the most faithful to an authentic blues sound.

While featuring many different lineups around Simmonds over the years, Savoy Brown has always remained consistently top-shelf. Musicians like Lonesome Dave, Chris Youlden, Roger Earl, Tone Stephens, Dave Walker, Paul Raymond, Bob Hall and Miller Anderson are some of the many talented players that made it happen for SB album after album, concert after concert.

The great local bluesman Craig Thatcher opens on solo acoustic guitar. Featuring a long and distinguished career, Thatcher's musical history is compelling in its own right.
