Glastonbury Calling 2017 - Kevin and The Destroyers

Live review of the set at The King Arthur for Glastonbury Calling 2017

Live Review – Kevin and the Destroyers at Glastonbury Calling 2017

Kevin and the Destroyers are an energetic , blues rock band based in Somerset. They played to a packed out back room of the King Arthur during the afternoon session for Glastonbury Calling 2017

The band look stylish, wearing 1970’s Paisley shirts, and open their set with ‘daydream’- their latest single, which captivates the audience from the first lively beat. Kevin and the Destroyers say they take their influences from bands such as Cream, and The Who, but I can also hear influences such as the Kinks and The White Stripes as they seamlessly play though their set.

Their fifth song ‘the City’ is my favourite of the set, the solo guitar intro is a complete contrast to the rocky numbers that precede it. They end the set with a crowd pleaser cover of ‘my Generation ’ by The Who, which has the crowd jumping and singing along.
