Thirty-seven years of music, spanning four decades, and the sound is as fresh now as when they began. Mountain Smoke is original, unpredictable, and their audiences are as varied as the music they will encounter. Built with elements of country and folk, the power of newgrass, and the sweet flow of mountain ballads, the music is timeless. As songwriters and musicians, they remain on the leading edge of acoustic music.
Mountain Smoke has twice been selected "Oklahoma’s Favorite Band" by the reader's poll in the 'Daily Oklahoman', and "Oklahoma's Best Country Band" by the 'Oklahoma Gazette' Music Awards. Playing a mixture of their original compositions, and music they have adapted to their unique style, Mountain Smoke will take you on a musical journey. With a smile, they will tell you, “We have performed at the White House in Washington D.C., the “Round Barn” in Arcadia, OK, and most everywhere in between.”
In addition to performing at the White House, and for Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and George Bush, Mountain smoke has entertained every Oklahoma Governor since 1973. The band's list of performance credits reads like a who’s who in country music.
