Chicken Shack - A genesis

How Chicken Shack got their band name - Jimmy Smith - Back at the chicken shackBritish blues band hatched under the maybe somewhat better fitting name Sounds of Blue.

According to one source the band name Chicken Shack is inspired by the title of an album by Jimmy Smith, Back at the Chicken Shack; according to others the origin must be sought in a track of Amos Milburn, entitled Chicken Shack Boogie.

Either way, the band seems to be named after some kind of Kentucky Fried Chicken branch.

Active: 1965-1974; 1976-present, GBR
