General admission + supper: $45

The New Savages are an Indie Blues band. Their sound's unique texture comes from taking inspiration mostly on the first generation of recorded Delta Blues, Gospel and Country Music recorded in the 1920's/30's.

Singer Milan’s striking baritone vocals evoke the spirit of a great poet. His guitar playing is a simple, primitive and hypnotic Blues boogie not unlike John Lee Hooker's – it's one that taps into the raw, authentic strand of Blues guitar that has been forgotten and neglected by a lot of modern Blues performers.

The New Savages have a subtle sense of charisma and confidence that seems to come from having their ears are tuned to the sounds of the old world. This deep interest in the history of the blues led Milan on a pilgrimages into the Mississippi Hill Country. The journey served as an inspirational basis for the band's debut album Seventh Son.

The release of Seventh Son sees the band embarking on a national tour across the country.
