Formed out of veterans of the Detroit music scene, The Smokin' 45s are bringing fans their special blend of Rock and Blues. Their live show takes the music up a notch, making for a night of lively entertainment including songs from artists like Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Charlie and the Nightcats as well as their own music which stands tall next to that of their well-established influences. There's no room in these sets for long, drawn-out, self-indulgent solos. These sets are packed with heart-pumping, foot-stomping rock and blues with a distinctive Detroit drive.
The Smokin' 45s choose their material from a wide spectrum of influences, but ultimately draw their energy from the inside. The band pours themselves into the songs and the result is a set of music that fits like a well-worn leather jacket.
Since the release of "Anywhere But Here....", the CD has garnered attention across a broad swath of the US and several parts of Europe. The CD echoes with the energy of their live shows in this well-produced studio recording.
