Legendary…a blues/rock institution…true innovators. These are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past fifty 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 1970’s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today.
Wylie Gustafson of Wylie & The Wild West is a native Montanan singer/songwriter with 20 albums and 4 decades of performing, writing, and recording under his belt. Wylie has matured into a dynamic talent, and has become one of the few authentic voices of the American West. One critic called him, “…the coolest cowpoke around. Forget everything you hate about modern country, this guy is old-school cool without being a tired period piece”.
Wylie is an American Original. For over the last 30 years, he and his band, The Wild West, have performed their refreshing blend of cowboy, western swing, old school country, and yodeling music worldwide. They are hugely popular on the festival and theatre circuit. Stateside, they have performed at such prestigious venues as the National Folk Festival, MerleFest, the Bumbershoot Festival, The Stagecoach Festival, A Prairie Home Companion, The Conan O’Brien Show and the Grand Ole Opry (with over 50 guest appearances). Worldwide, their universal appeal has taken them to China, Russia, Australia, Europe, South America, and Japan.

For two decades, Kyle Cook spent the bulk of his musical life as the lead guitarist of matchbox 20. He co-wrote some of the songs and invented many of the instrumental riffs that have become distinguishing parts in such radio staples as “Real World,” “Unwell” and “Bent.” But plenty of his creative persona was held in check as he collaborated in a team effort.
With Wolves, his solo debut, Cook invests so much of himself in the project that a discerning listener can get a good idea of who the guitar player really is. He’s a studied musician with an all-American Midwestern background, a guy who has a penchant for classic rock with just enough classical training to make him dangerous, and an adult whose experiences with the cycle of love and loss are extraordinarily familiar.
Paul McDonald - was in the Top 8 on Season 10 of American Idol, has shared the stage and toured with John Mayer, Hanson, Stevie Wonder and Zac Brown Band. He has been a popular festival act playing Bonnaroo, SXSW, Live on the Green and performed on nationally televised shows like Good Morning America, The Today Show, NBC’s Parenthood and The Tonight Show.
