In Smokey's Western Combo we play old western swing, early jazz and blues on period correct instruments except for Charlie Burnham's weird looking violin and a few other things. Well maybe its not so period correct and we play mostly whatever we want at the time but we do wear cowboy hats !

The rest of january 2007 so far

Well, January is on the slow side as far as live gigs go so far. Here is what I have going on for the rst of the month:

Jan 9th: Andrew Cohen at Ace of Clubs
9 Great Jones Street between Broadway and Lafayette

It looks like the Brooklyn country crew makes this scene. I'm not sure what is going on but I am going to a rehearsal so I will have a head start on the tunes anyway.

Jan 12: I'm playing with The Woes at Terra Blues 149 Bleecker Street NYC. Should be a fun show.

Jan 14: Its sunday so I must be at
Hank's !

Jan 17th Smokey Hormel's Roundup is back at Sunny's in Red Hook

Jan 20th Hem is at Bowery Ballroom. This is a great band that you should check out if at all possible.

Jan 21 Hank's ! 10:00

Jan 24 Back to Sunny's with Smokey and a rock star of note siting in on drums.

Jan 28th: Man, I'm wondering what my life has come to... oh yea, I'm at Hank's again. All is well with the world.

Jan 31: Smokey at Sunny's. All you have heard about this gig is true. You will feel the power and bow down before the mighty force of this early jazz/western swing band.
Prepare yourself and be aware that we wear cowboy hats.
