The Blowin’ Smoke Rhythm and Blues Band featuring the Fabulous Smokettes, by popular demand, will be doing a debut performance at the new Mrs. Fish in Downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday, September 23. The group, led by singer/bass player Larry “Fuzzy” Knight, who formed the band 20 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”.

Lyrica Garrett’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.

Keyboards are handled by Don Preston, one of the original members of the Mothers of Invention and a co-founder of the GrandMothers, with whom he recorded over thirty albums.

Mrs. Fish is a new underground venue in the Pershing Square Building in DTLA. It 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 Mrs. Fish’s a perfect place to be this Wednesday night. And with the powerful driving bass and vocals of Larry “Fuzzy” Knight, this club is going to be one place that’s full of lots of great music.
