Formed in 2013, The Smokers are a blues crossover indie jam band from Peoria Illinois. Their self branded “river city” style has been described as atmospheric fusing both traditional and crossover elements. They focus on memorable songwriting, creative improvisation, and pure stage energy. They have shared the same stage with Buddy Guy, Walter Trout, Steve Gorman (from the Black Crowes), Ana Popovic, EC Scott, Althea Grace, and Reverend Horton Heat just to name a few. The Smokers currently have two albums available on iTunes/Amazon and an upcoming EP.
