SIR ROSEVELT U.S. GROUP LED BY ZAC BROWN

27/01/2017

Scala, London: 14 March 2017

  • Collaborators Zac Brown, Niko Moon and Ben Simonetti first ever UK show
  •  

On 14 March 2017, ‘Southern Pop’ group Sir Rosevelt will take to the stage of the iconic London venue Scala to play their first ever show on these shores.

 

The trio of Zac Brown (yes, the Zac Brown of Grammy Award-Winning Zac Brown Band), songwriter (and long-term ZBB collaborator) Niko Moon and instrumentalist, producer and songwriter Ben Simonetti have chosen London to play their first gig outside of the USA.

 

The group has been working on their debut album for release later this year but wanted to introduce the music live to international audiences at their first opportunity. The mix of pop, dance, acoustic instrumentation and Southern sensibility will ensure that Sir Rosevelt will bring a hell of a party to the London stage. The guys previously worked together in the studio on ZBB’s 2015 album Jekyll + Hyde and whilst doing so, realised that they wanted to explore creative ideas and sonics beyond the Zac Brown Band sound. Subsequently, the trio spent the next year writing and recording on Brown’s bus before and after every Zac Brown Band show, enjoying the unique and inspiring freedom of developing a new sound without boundaries. With their collective songwriting, a laptop, and Simonetti’s beats and programming, the trio was able to blend electronic and pop sounds with Southern flavour, and Sir Rosevelt was born. 

 

Zac Brown Band are flying over to the UK as headliners of the C2C Festivals in the arenas of Dublin, Glasgow and London and Zac will stay behind afterwards for some extracurricular activity with his Sir Rosevelt bandmates for this intimate gig at the iconic Scala Theatre. 

 

Zac states: “Scala is such a legendary venue and to get the chance to play our debut gig on the same stage that the likes of Iggy Pop and Lou Reed performed on is just unbelievable.  We’re definitely gonna bring the energy onstage.  We love playing in the UK and Ireland so we hope this will be the first of many Sir Rosevelt gigs over there!”
