Dragon Smoke formed in 2003 as a “Superjam” - part of the New Orleans Jazz Fest tradition of putting together a band of musicians who don’t normally play together and just see what happens. With the dual vocals of Neville and Lindell, matched with the Galactic rhythm section, the band quickly realized, “We are on to something!”. The band has played during every Jazz Fest since its inception. This inception took place at the tiny smokey Dragon’s Den Bar, hence the name – Dragon Smoke.
The music centers around Lindell’s blue-eyed soul, Neville’s funk and R&B, and Galactic’s groove. Besides annual trips to the West Coast the past 10 years, and a 2013 trip to the East Coast, this band has been strickly playing around New Orleans. With everyone in the band being a leader in their own right, it is rare to get this band together. And when it does, it shows that these guys are really having FUN! From the interplay and communication between the members, you would think that Dragon Smoke has been touring for years.
Dragon Smoke is looking towards the future, with plans to write and record an album and to do more touring outside of New Orleans. So be on the lookout for the Smoke—IF YOU SEE SMOKE, YOU KNOW YOU WILL SEE FIRE!
