Mr. Smyth is a creative,talented, fun loving band that was born out of the musical wasteland created by the pandemic of 2020.
Like a junkies needing a fix this group of musicians just had to play. As we got together to just jam it was quickly apparent we had something special going on , something we frankly never expected. We created great music, shared a passion for music that ran deep and had a need to entertain. Thus Mr. Smyth was born.
It’s made up of some of the best blues artists in NOCO...
. Ricky Gary the rhythm master on drums, from The Robert Wilson Blues Band and formerly with WoolEye
.Dave "Doc" Dougherty guitar wizard from Pappa Juke and The State of Affairs
. Andy Tatro frontman of Three Shot singing his Road house blues
. Brian “chord master“ Pantel from Consortium on guitar
. Scott Mc Blane fresh in from the east coast tickling the ivory’s
. Alan Sparks on bass, he's with many bands I can’t keep them straight
. Mehgan Castor , the Beth Hart of NoCo , from the Blues DoGS
.. Kent Obermann frontman of the Blues DoGS just trying to keep up with these guys
We do a mix of eclectic, difficult, high energy blues rock and that slow soulful vocal harmony driven stuff that makes you glad you showed up , didn’t stay home and you’ll want to know where the band is playing next .
A vocally driven, instrumentally suburb band with diverse musical influences is what makes up the unique Mr. Smyth sound.
Originals from Andy and Doc pepper the set lists of seldom heard classics that make you want to come hear this band again and again.
Their showmanship and stage presence draws the crowd into the musical experience as few bands can. They love playing together and it’s infectious. No one has more fun at a Mr. Smyth show than the band.
With a band roster this deep in talent and experience we can bring various renditions from the full 8 piece Mr.Smyth experience or we can break it down into 7,6,5,or 4 pieces as the venue size or budget dictates.
We can discuss the configuration and music you need to create the experience you desire.
This is a must see, must hire band .
