Smith/McKay All Day, Terry White (SideBar Music Room)
Sun, Oct 14 2018, 7:00pm - $8 in advance, $10 at the door - Tickets
Doors open at 7 pm.
Two man band that's as full as a 4 piece. Ex-Gourds co-frontman Jimmy Smith and bluesman Pat McKay with drum stomping, guitar banging and vocalizing old Gourd, HardPans, Slo-Red faves and whatever's on the Smitty madness menu this week.
Jimmy Smith is best known for his 2 decades performing with famed Austin, TX alt-country outfit, The Gourds, as one of the two principal songwriters and bass player. Alongside Kevin "Shinyribs" Russell, Max Johnston (formerly of Wilco), Claude Bernard and Keith Langford, the band relentlessly toured the country, playing every festival stage imaginable and recording with the likes of Doug Sahm and long-time Bob Dylan sideman, Larry Campbell. Though their days as a band came to an end in 2013, Jimmy has continued playing music as The Hard Pans, the Jimmy Smith System and most recently as a power duo in Smith-McKay All Day.
Smith/McKay All Day (formed in early 2018) combines Jimmy's bar-band-booty-shaking grooves and surreal tounge-in-cheek songwriting with the Texas/Montana blues and country sensibilities of seasoned bluesman, Pat McKay. Smith/McKay All Day calls Missoula, MT home. Please check out the website for more information: http://jimmysmithatx.com/"
