*DMD THE BAND*
Daru Jones (Drums-Jack White)
Marcus Machado (Guitar-The Family Stand)
and Doug Wimbish (Bass-Living Colour)
Dragon Smoke has sold-out every show to date…every year in a row in New Orleans during JazzFest and also in San Francisco for more than 15 years!
DRAGON SMOKE has crowds and lines down the street (all night long) each and every night they perform. This band is super hot! It is a very rare treat to catch the DRAGON SMOKE show (as the individual players are in their own separate major touring bands and their schedules of availability rarely coincide with each others, Dragon Smoke has only been able to get together and perform a small handful of select dates each year). So don’t miss this one! *DRAGON SMOKE* performs at ONE EYED JACKS on Tuesday, May 1 2018 bringing its stellar style of dirty-south funk and new New Orleans R&B Rock in what is a kick-azz rockin’ show from start to finish!
The music of DRAGON SMOKE truly represents the New Orleans Funk, R&B and Soul tradition. It’s a phenomenal band. Don’t miss this one!
DMD THE BAND IS Rock and Roll. Soul. Jazz. Hip Hop. Rhythm and Blues. While everyone continues to use their gauging barometer readily boxing in creativity to confined spaces, along comes an album to defy the norm. Fusing hip hop, soul and jazz together to create ‘soul hop’, drummer Daru Jones (Jack White, Jamie Lidell, Slum Village), guitarist Marcus Machado (The Family Stand, Victor Bailey, Kid Capri) and bassist Doug Wimbish (Living Colour, Sugarhill Records, Rolling Stones) are combining expertise and influences to create a sound and experience like no other. 3 generations of musicianship and meeting of the minds will bring you Daru, Marcus and Doug, known as the collective DMD. DMD is the reflection of a superb tuneful trifecta. The soulful energy between Daru, Marcus and Doug is undeniable. Their camaraderie and artistry radiates throughout each note. It’s a fantastic blend of sounds that will leave music connoisseurs of all genres wanting for more. There are many ways to describe DMD. It can be heard as soulful, rock and roll. Or, perhaps a timeless retro and organic vibe. However, it would honestly be best for you to come to your own conclusion once you press play on this bold and stylish beauty.
