The Blowin’ Smoke Rhythm and Blues Band featuring the Fabulous Smokettes, by popular demand, will be performing a return engagement at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica on Saturday, November 22. The group, led by singer/bass player Larry “Fuzzy” Knight, who formed the band 17 years ago, will perform R&B standards, an assortment of electric blues from artists such as Lightnin’ Hopkins, Willie Dixon and Stevie Ray Vaughan as well as a selection of stunning originals. As “Fuzzy” says,  the others “are all re-written arrangements to accommodate the horns and the Fabulous Smokette’s sound”.

Of special note at this performance is that it marks Lyrica Garrett’s (one of the Fabulous Smokettes) first show with the band since recording the title track for the Lifetime Network Movie, “Seasons of Love”. The movie will debut on Sunday, November 23rd on the Lifetime Channel. Lyrica’s dynamite voice, along with fellow Smokettes Dwanna Parker (also known as Madam Dee) and La Quita Davis, combine to form one of the hottest vocal combos around these days. Between the three of them, they can go from Aretha Franklin to Janis Joplin style vocals, never failing to maintain their own unique sound too.

Harvelle’s in Santa Monica is a great place to accommodate this 11 piece band. Between a nice dance floor for shakin’ those hips and a full bar and comfortable seating, the Blowin’ Smoke Rhythm and Blues Band featuring the Fabulous Smokettes makes Harvelle’s a perfect place to be this Sunday night. And with the powerful driving bass and vocals of Larry “Fuzzy” Knight, this clubs going to be one place that’s full of lots of great music.
