What many people don’t realize is the immense amount of talent on the stage when Blowin’ Smoke performs. Blowin’ Smoke band leader Knight, for one, was a former member of renowned SoCal rock band, Spirit – who were recently in the news the world over when the estate of late Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe (California) sued two members of Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, over copyright infringement regarding Wolfe’s song, “Taurus.” Knight also testified in the 2-plus week trial.
“If You’re Looking To Party This Is The Band To See” Says LA JAZZ SCENE
Reviewing a recent Blowin’ Smoke live show, LA JAZZ SCENE writes, “The Blowin Smoke Rhythm & Blues Band featuring the Fabulous Smokettes rocked the house at Mrs. Fish. Band leader Larry “Fuzzy” Knight – who somewhat resembles Elvin Bishop – brought “The Fabulous Smokettes” up to tear up the club with Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools” and Bonnie Raitt’s “Something to Talk About” that both featured the band wailing away too. If you’re looking to party this is the band to see.”
As Knight himself says, “Size matters and bigger is better! Blowin’ Smoke is a band that will give it to you…sometimes sweet, sometimes hard! But when we’re done pouring it on you, you gotta come back for more”.
Blowin’ Smoke Rhythm & Blues Revue/Words Of Praise From The Media
“By the time we got to Harvelle’s, the room was already packed with people…The Boss (band leader Larry “Fuzzy” Knight”) began their evening’s musical journey through their own world of electronic rhythm and blues, funk, rock, and Southern soul. The dance floor was soon flooded; at one point the club had reached its legal maximum capacity. No one could move – but, listening to Knight and his red-hot ensemble, no one could help but move”. Highlights of the evening included the band performing “C.O.D.” from their album, a cover of Buddy Guy’s “Midnight Train”, and their wonderful singers (the Smokettes) covering such R&B chestnuts as “Rock Steady”, “I’ll Take You There”, Bonnie Raitt’s “Something To Talk About” and Labelle’s “Lady Marmalade”.All in all, a performance that lives up to the hype”
“The Blowin’ Smoke Rhythm & Blues Band with the Fabulous Smokettes packed Harvelle’s with a crowd that was there to enjoy great music played the way it should be. Larry “Fuzzy” Knight has the kind of voice that is perfect for the blues, a little gritty but with excellent range. Guitarist Dave ‘Raven’ Rutchinski demonstrated his skill on a Stevie Ray Vaughan song, “Crossfire”, wringing a ton of emotion out of his guitar. “C.O.D.” with John ‘JT’ Thomas on organ, showcased the instruments along with Fuzzy’s powerful vocals. This is music played and sung the way it was meant to be and “Fuzzy” Knight knows how to get the best out of his musicians and singers”.
