ZEPHYR (BOULDER) – FEATURING TOMMY BOLIN

Colorado Music Hall of Fame Inductee 2019

 

Zephyr

Formed in 1969 – this band featured guitar player Tommy Bolin. Much in the vain of many 70’s groups in Colorado – band members congregated along the Colorado Front Range attracted from all parts of the country.

Bolin later played with The James Gang and then Deep Purple for a time – also doing much studio work and solo work. After the demise of Zephyr band members the Givens with Tommy Bolin, John Faris and two former members of Flash Cadillac – Mick Manresa (Flash) and Harold Fielden put together The Legendary 4-Nikators. Their base was Boulder, Colorado.
