Rick Elliot and the Secondhand Smoke Band are dedicated to preserving and creating Outlaw Country and Southern Rock. This 5-piece band has been tearing up the Southern California Country Music scene for over a year now and is ready to release their debut CD, FIRST HAND, this summer, 2014. They are poised to vault themselves skyward to new heights of popularity and attention. The Secondhand Smoke Band is picking up steam in a hurry!
Band leader, Rick Elliot has been poised for greatness since he was a child as a young piano prodigy. He soon fell in love with Country music and at a young age started writing, singing, and playing his own songs during his teen years. Since becoming a young adult, Rick is ready to trek into the Country world with his Secondhand Smoke Band and light the world on fire. Rick plays piano, guitar, and is the vocalist for this Country outfit. Rick also writes all of the band’s music and co-produces all of the band's material. Rick is joined by drummer, Brock Fengler, a high school classmate and friend who can groove with the best drummers in the music scene. Ryan Hensley mans the bass guitar while Kevin Byerly bangs the bongos. Scott Sullivan completes the band on steel pedal guitar. Though only a 5-piece ensemble, Rick and the boys are often joined on stage by many seasoned pro-musicians which make the LIVE music experience one that a fan will never forget.
