Dragon Smoke formed in 2003 as a “Superjam” – part of the New Orleans Jazz Fest tradition of putting together a band of people who don’t normally play together and see what happens. With the dual vocals of Neville and Lindell, matched with the Galactic rhythm section, the band quickly realized, “We are on to something” and has played every Jazz Fest since its inception. This inception took place at tiny smokey Dragon’s Den, hence the name of the band.
The music centers around Lindell’s blue eyed soul , Neville’s funk and R&B, and Galactic’s groove. Besides annual trips to the West Coast the past 6 years, and a 2013 trip to the East Coast, this band has been strictly playing in New Orleans. With everyone in the band being a leader on their own, it is rare to get this band together. And when it does, it shows that these guys are really having FUN! From the interplay and communication between the members, you would think that Dragon Smoke has been
touring for years.
Dragon Smoke is looking towards the future, with plans to write and record an album and to do more touring outside of New Orleans. So be on the lookout for the Smoke—IF YOU SEE SMOKE, YOU KNOW YOU WILL SEE FIRE!
APE is a six-piece band from San Francisco and the only band in the world that features a live Tiki Carver. APE is anything but conventional.
While rooted in exotica, rock, jazz, and Hawaiian music, APE has touched on various genres throughout their career. Their instrumentation is a nontraditional mix of steel guitar, ukuleles and odd tuned acoustics with electric guitars, bass, drums and a variety of percussion instruments. Fronted by a man swinging an ax known as ‘Crazy Al,’ their live shows are not to be missed experiences which is why you might find yourself sitting next to folks like Alice Cooper. Many of their exciting instrumental songs thrive on the dynamics of call-and-response before building to a climax and their animated vocal numbers do a great job of pulling the audience into the mix.
APE has headlined the Hard Rock Cafe and the House of Blues in Las Vegas, the Tiki Oasis festivals in Palm Springs and San Diego, the Hukilau in Florida, shared the bill with Sammy Hagar, Blondie, Link Wray, Preston Epps, Billy Mure and toured the Western United States. This year they are releasing their follow up album to ‘Jungle Gems’ called ‘Supersonic’ as well as a line of limited edition custom APE tiki mugs, a new live film and some fun apparel.
