Touring in support of Brand X’s new album “Locked & Loaded” with founders John Goodsall & Percy Jones still at the helm. Keyboardist Chris Clark, Percussionist Scott Weinberger, and Drummer Kenny Grohowski each bring their own creative style of playing that make Brand X such a magical act live.
The seeds were sown years ago in London as players in a studio band for many of Brian Eno’s infamous solo albums. Drummer Phil Collins and Bassist Percy Jones got to know each other through those sessions. Later Jones and Guitarist John Goodsall officially formed Brand X. Bill Bruford even played a few shows, but was too tied up with King Crimson, so it wasn’t too long before Collins was locked in behind the kit on Drums. With their initial albums “Unorthodox Behaviour”, “Moroccan Roll” and “Livestock” many critics were soon dubbing Brand X “The pioneers of the Jazz-Rock-Fusion.” Today the band carries with it more Funk and Rock, but the improv sections are still pure heaven.
