The new tour is in support of Brand X’s new album “Locked & Loaded/LIVE” with

founders Goodsall & Percy Jones (Bass) still at the helm. Keyboardist Chris

Clark, Percussionist Scott Weinberger, and Drummer Kenny Grohowski each

bring their own unique artistry that make Brand X such a magical act live.

 

The original seeds were sown many 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 John

Goodsall officially formed Brand X. Bill Bruford even played a few shows — but

was tied up with King Crimson and his own band Bruford, so it wasn’t long before

Collins was locked in behind the Brand X Drum kit for good.

 

Brand X would sign with Genesis’ management company and they were off and

running. They played several festivals dates along with Genesis like the infamous

Knebworth Fest in England. With their first three albums “Unorthodox Behaviour”,

“Moroccan Roll” and “Livestock” many critics hailed Brand X as the future. In a

1978 poll in England’s NME, Brand X were ranked first, above The Sex Pistols as

new band of the year. In a sense they truly were at the forefront of the Jam-

Band/Fusion sound. Today the band carries with it more Funk and Rock and less

Jazz, but the improvised sections are still pure heaven.
