The Smokin' Bandits

The Smokin' Bandits long been a staple on a powerful Midwest music scene with their high-energy form of original music dubbed "Grass n' Roll." With a catalog of original material mixing influences ranging from Willie Nelson to The Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat to Leftover Salmon, the band brings a powerhouse performance each time they take the stage sure to make you move, shake, and promising for every show to be one of different form. Forming as a string band in La Crosse, WI in 2003, the Bandits electrified in 2004 to form a sound that is uniquely theirs but reaches to music lovers of all different genres and generations

In 13 years of touring the Smokin' Bandits have shared the stage with the likes of Merle Haggard, Little Feat, Dr. John, Jason Isbell, Todd Snider, Great American Taxi, ekoostik hookah, Jazz Mandolin Project, The Big Wu, Melvin Seals & JGB, Steve Kimock, Trampled by Turtles, Bill Miller, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades and many more.
