It’s early 1979, and the Pat Travers Band have just been introduced and subsequently recorded for what would become one of the slickest and hottest guitar-rock albums ever committed to vinyl. “Live! Go for What You Know” was a huge success on both sides of the pond, acclaimed by their musical peers, fans, and music critics alike. It was high-energy. It was electric. It was lightning in a bottle. The album, much like the Canadian musician himself, remains an influence for a whole generation of guitar slingers.
Toronto born Patrick Henry Travers had already delivered a tasty trio of releases before the formation of that formidable four-piece, and would go on to deliver classy melodic eighties rock before a blues period in the nineties, but it’s that famous foursome that set standards, kicked your ass, and made such a musical mark.
As thousands of fans across parts of North America and Europe already know, this band doesn’t just produce the goods in the studio… This Pat Travers Band is also one seriously tight rockin’ unit, and live they always deliver. You owe it to yourself to catch this band whenever and wherever you can … just don’t forget to bring a bottle.
From the streets of Toronto, to the streets of London, now, here to kick your ass… The Pat Travers Band.
