The Smokin' Jackets is one of those genre creations ranging from the silky smooth to hard driving swing. Led by Paul Pigat, whose singing tone is warm and luxurious like chocolate while his guitar playing is pure fire. As a side man Paul has worked with Neko Case, Carolyn Mark, Jim Byrnes and Jacob Dylan. On his own he fronts his rockabilly juggernaut Cousin Harley and numerous side projects.
Joining Paul onstage is the enigmatic Al Pease reeds, Victoria's bass super star Joey Smith, and Damian Graham on drums.
