Savvy deserves a lot of
credit.Just last year, they
were primed to open the
Texxas Jam when it was
jerked out from under them by
another bands
management.This time it was
REO's manager who deciced
that that Savvy should not
play on the same show as the
now bigshot band.Louis
Messina tried to make it up to
the band by letting them open
for Heart in San Anatonio the
Thursday before the
Jam.Also, the band reports,
that all of the members of
REO Speddwagon stopped by
the Houston Agora where
Savvy was playing over the
Jam weekend, and asked if
they could sit in on Savvy's
equipment and play
awhile.The Savvy boys
agreed to an end of the night
session, and REO played for
about a half hour.Everything
was buddy buddy after
that.Savvy has a lot of of
class.

lead guitarist Kirby
Warnock who has
left the band tp

friends of the
