The Levi Set Blues Band were an English rock band formed in 1965 in Lichfield, Staffordshire. The lineup was Jeremy Spencer on vocals and Hammond organ, Dennis Tuckerman on electric and slide guitar, John Charles on bass and his brother Ian Charles on drums. According to Spencer, Tuckerman and the road manager both left, the roadie taking his Hammond with him, necessitating Jeremy's change over to guitar. They existed for two years but disbanded when Mike Vernon auditioned the group and brought Spencer to the attention of Peter Green, whereupon he was asked to join Fleetwood Mac. They had residencies at The Place in Stoke and The Metro in Birmingham. Heavily influenced by the blues music of Elmore James, they attracted a cult Mod following throughout their two years playing together[citation needed].
