New York based band BILL TURNER & BLUE SMOKE have been creating a rumble in the northeast states for 3 decades.
Turner, a former lead guitarist with Bill Haley & His Comets during the mid 70's, along with his red-hot Blue Smoke band derive their inspiration from traditional country and rockabilly, but put their own distinctive spin on the music effectively creating their own highly individual sound and style.
Starting out as a bar band in 1972, they now appear regularly in Atlantic City at Bally's Wild, Wild West Casino as well as throughout the NY, NJ, PA DE and CT area in nightclubs and outdoor concert dates.
Bill Turner is a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, dobro, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica on this CD as well as those for other artists.
Bill Turner & Blue Smoke are also heard on MTV playing the soundtrack music on the four commercials launching the M-2 Satellite Network.
The band records for Mansion Records, an independent label.
