Originating in San Francisco in 1965, the Flamin’ Groovies have been kicking out jams of high-powered, infectious rock ‘n’ roll ever since. Their place in history is well established as one of the all-time greatest bands and as progenitors of real rock ‘n’ roll.
The current lineup features Cyril Jordan with Chris von Sneidern on guitar, Tony Sales on drums, and newest member Atom Ellis on bass. Their show spans the band’s career, including their rockabilly-meets-the-Stones Teenage Head period as well as their heralded late-’70s power pop period. Having just completed a month-long tour of Europe, the band can’t wait to get back to the East Coast and some of the best cities and best fans in the world.
