Smoking Time can handily go an entire evening without playing anything that can be easily recognized, and singer Sarah Peterson “has a way with words to tunes that many of us never knew had lyrics.” -Steve Steinburg Offbeat Magazine
The front section of the band is anything but sedate, one moment they are jumping to their feet to solo all at once, or at even at one point, to jump off the bandstand and grab willing members of the crowd for a dance around. I can't remember the last time I saw a band swing as hard as they do.
