Band Biography


John "Smokeydoodah" Smith

Vocals / Harmonica / Guitar / Sax

The original bluesman, Smokeydoodah blows that harp with feeling and authenticity, just like he came straight from the cotton fields.


Chris "C-Bone" Hogg

Guitar / Vocals

Chris sings and plays guitar as though his life depends on it. He has the sound of a blues player many years older.

Slim Jake Landers

Jake Landers


Jake plays some of the meanest blues licks this side of the Atlantic. He bends those notes until they scream and howl.


Jonny "Dr Funk" Rubin


The original laid back funkster, Dr Funk is the funkiest bassist we ever did hear. When he's not playing his bass, you'll find him absolutely shredding in the surf.
