A GREAT START TO THE YEAR!

AND NOW, WE ALL MUST BE ALERT ... WE ALL MUST BE SAFE

Smokehouse started the year with the line-up that closed out 2019: Scott, Sammy, and Granvil on vocals/guitars, David on bass and Rene on drums in the rhythm section. The band is clickin' like a Swiss watch and the shows have been a blast. We are very lucky to have been able to play our six residence shows at The Cove and The Gruene Grove  before the closures came. In February, Smokehouse opened the music show of the 2020 Alamo City Guitar Bazaar, held this year at Venue Villita. We always enjoy jamming at the monthly blues jam at The Gruene Grove and recently hosted the jam. Robert Saunders, a fantastic guitar player from New Braunfels, was a guest of ours on stage.  It took no time to see that Robert knows how to play some real good blues guitar. And one our favorite people in the world, Shelby Cheyenne, not only joined us at the jams but was also our featured guest at a Gruene Grove show. She just keeps getting better and better and we invite her up every chance we get! To top off a nice few months of some great gigs with great special guests, a friend of ours, Fred Stewart, flew in to San Antonio to visit and catch up on lost time. Well, as it happens, he is an accomplished drummer and so of course we enlisted him ino The Army! Fred sat in for a whole set. And it was a stone gas for everyone!


Our band is fortunate to have started 2020 with such great shows. To be able to have the killer players we have and to be able to have talented friends joining us on stage is a blessing. We do put in the long hours and the hard work to earn the great gigs we have. And we appreciate our venues for having us over and our friends and fans for coming to see us. But now, times have been changed by a worldwide event and we have to put some parts of our lives on hold. We are all now asked to change our daily behavior - stay indoors, avoid groups, avoid contact, etc. So let's do this. AND LET'S DO IT WITH STYLE! Be good to others. Look to be helpful to those isolated. With what we are facing, from now until the end of April, all shows have been cancelled. What May holds in store is mere speculation at this time. Friends, the music will once again play. Be alert. Be safe. The Boogie will Return! Til then ... "Let's work together!"

A Fine Close to 2019!


It was a great year for the band and we want to thank all our friends and fans. Thank you so much for coming out to our shows. Thank you so much for the great emails and texts. Probably the biggest blessing we got was Sam recuperating from his dangerous illness. It was great seeing all his friends and fellow musicians coming together to see him recover. Now, he is back on stage with Smokehouse, 100%! We were fortunate to have some killer gigs to close the year out with Sam and the band. Go up on line and take a look at the pictures from the shows.

Smokehouse is grateful to our wonderful venues for having us over to perform. We always strive to bring an audience and keep an audience so the venue does well. And that's where our great audiences have been great. Thank you all again for coming by and catching our shows. We are going to be playing at some new venues this year. A big thanks to The Cove and The Gruene Grove for booking Smokehouse for the First Friday and First Saturday of each month in 2020. Now, there will be a couple of months where that schedule will be altered. So be sure to keep up with the calendar. And we'll be looking to see you at our shows in 2020.

A Great Road Trip from Austin to Del Rio to Gruene ...
Magic Sam is back on tour with Smokehouse! - September  2019

Well, this is the moment friends and fans of Smokehouse and Sam Massey have been waiting for ... Sam's return to good health and getting back on stage with his band. For a long time, we did not know what would happen. Sammy had been quite ill at home for a couple of days. Nothing seemed right. When a friend went over to check in on him Sam was unresponsive and 911 was called. He was taken to a local hospital which determined immediately that Sam needed to be rushed up to Austin. The doctors in Austin examined Sam but had no leads on what was killing our friend. They put him into an induced coma and kept him under 24-hour observation. A tracheotomy was performed and for what seemed like years Sam lay there asleep with tubes and machines plugged into him. Then, things changed. The doctors now had an idea what was going on and they formed a plan of attack. They brought him out of the coma and began the treatment regimen. This staff of dedicated doctors, nurses, and technicians helped bring Sammy back to us. He was responding positively to treatment and therefore he was able to have more visits from family and friends which helped him so much on his road to recovery. Posters and cards and gifts filled his room. Sammy was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from those dear to him. The last leg of the recuperating process was to have Sam stay under observation at a convalescing home versus staying in a medical facility. While there he was able to get in some physical therapy as well as off-campus trips with friends coming by to visit. And now, Sammy is back out in society in his new digs north of Austin in Round Rock and he is doing GREAT! He will be using a cane for a while, but that's okay with Sam. Not too long ago he was re-learning how to walk.

As far as the band goes, we would gradually bring him back. A couple of songs a show, then maybe a full set, and eventually a full show. Well Sam just had to go way ahead of schedule. We figured maybe by December or January would be a realistic goal for Sam being able to perform for an entire show. To our impressed amazement, he was on stage with Smokehouse for two complete shows this past weekend, in Del Rio and in Gruene! And it was fantastic. Friday night we played our premier show at The Bak Yard in Del Rio and Sam did not miss a note. Rick and Brenda Rivera, owners of The Bak Yard, had a great time with us and invited us back to play before the year ends. We met new friends and got a chance to talk to some Air Force personnel from Laughlin AFB and many of our border protectors. SGA let them know how much we appreciate what they do for all of us. And a special thank you to Charlie Cockerell for making the trip and covering the bass work for the evening in Del Rio ... fine job. The next day we headed up to Gruene for our monthly residency at The Gruene Grove and as a special treat we were joined by internationally acclaimed Jack Barber on bass. This was the second time Jack played with us at the Grove and the rhythm section was rolling all night long. It was an incredible show and Sammy was on fire the whole night. Many in the audience came up to say howdy to Sam and let him know how glad they were to see him back. Yep, Magic Sam is back and boy is it great that Smokehouse continues to unleash the boogie as we do!

A Great Weekend Highlighted
With a Session with Magic Sam Massey - August  2019

Top of the month in August means First Friday at The Cove. This is by far one of our favorite shows we do in the month. Following a great performance by The Lavens, we put on a high powered, boogie driven Smokehouse show that had the people dancing! Our lineup was our core band minus Sammy, who is doing great these days. Jason Crisp was with us again to fill in at lead guitar/vocals, joining Scott, Stray Dawg, David Meissner, and Dan Aubert. Some friends from the past came by to see us play and it was a most enjoyable 3 hours. The next day was an evening gig up in Kingsland at The Place Downtown, a happening place where we have played four or five times before. They sunk a good amount of money and sweat into updating the venue, namely a new built up stage with completely upgraded audio and visual reinforcement. This gig has been planned for a few months with a special treat in mind: bringing Sam Massey down from Austin, where he is recuperating. His friends from the Llano / Lake Buchanan / Kingsland area - those that were used to being with him once or twice a week - were going to be at the show so everyone could visit. If, by chance, he could play that would just be extra icing on the cake. Well everything aligned and it was a complete blast! Sam was back with Smokehouse, playing the second set, and we were joined by Shelby Cheyenne, a favorite of ours. The place was rocking and the show was well appreciated. Please be sure and check out the photos ... we have a lot of buddy shots as well as performance shots.

Some Old Friends and Some New Friends
Sitting in with Smokehouse in Gruene - June 2019

As happens during the course of our shows, this June 22 gig at The Gruene Grove had some logisitics challenges attached. While Sammy is recovering in Austin, Jason Crisp and Jamie Krueger have been filling in on the frontline. Both Jason and Jamie were unable to perform with Smokehouse at this show. Stray Dawg, our other lead guitarist and vocalist, along with his brother Dan, our drummer, had a prior engagement scheduled for that date. Which left Scott as the only active member SGA person to do the performance! Jason was able to connect us with his pal Nate Boff from Austin to sit in at one guitar/vocalist slot. And fortunately we were able to call out from the reserves our great friend, The Texas Saint, Michael Mulligan. We now had the frontline set, the rhythm section was next. We were honored to be joined by world renowned bassist and friend of Smokehouse Jack Barber. One phone call to him and he was in the band. To complete the rhythm section we brought in Eric Vasquez, the enthusiatstic drummer with the Texas Shinerunners to work with Jack and what we got was a solid hard- driving rhythm train to match the frontline guitar team. Smokehouse had a blast and The Gruene Grove was packed all night. We thank everyone for their kind comments and emails after the show. Thank you to Chris and staff for the hospitality and the great venue. And thumbs up to John O for the great job handling sound reinforcement. What a night!

Houston Adventure with a Mission - April 2019

The April calendar for Smokehouse had a big time couple of weekends that we were able to align and join! Three gigs in Houston on back-to-back weekends: The Truck Yard, The Big Easy, and Shakespeare Pub. As everyone knows, our co-founder and lead guitarist/vocalist Sam Massey is in recovery from a major illness he had. So we set off for Houston with a mission to get Sammy's Houston fans to come out and sign get-well posters for us to take back to Sammy. We had done the same thing two weeks earlier at the San Antonio Blues Society's Fiesta Blues Heritage Series show. The posters were completely filled in with greetings and well wishes from everyone. Sam was brought to tears when Scott pesented him the framed signed posters. Thanks to everyone for coming out and sharing your support. We were fortunate to have Stray Dawg travel with us from San Antonio for his first Houston performances with Smokehouse. Jason Crisp came down from Austin for two of the gigs. From our Houston Reserves we called on Larry Evans for bass, Brad McCool on guitar/vocals, and on drums we had Snit Fitzpatrick, Albert Storo, and Ken Woodard. Thank you to The Truck Yard, The Big Easy Social & Pleasure Club, and Shakespeare Pub for making this happen. And once again, thank you to friends and fans for sending your best to Sammy.

A Weekend with Chris Duarte - March 2019

Chris Duarte was the name that came up for our second Smokehouse Showcase at The Cove. After a few phone calls we sealed the date with Chris and The Cove. This was a great opportunity to bring back Chris to his native San Antonio. We were very fortunate that we found an open date on Chris' rather crowded calendar. This show was also featured as a SABS coPro. For this Showcase we were joined on bass by Bret Coats and Jamie Krueger on drums. Vocals and guitar work covered by Chris, Scott, and Stray Dawg. After booking this show, we were able to bring Chris' band, The Chris Duarte Group, to Sam's Burger Joint as the featured band for the San Antonio Blues Society's 2019 Fiesta Blues Heritage Series show "River City Blues Revue." Basing out of Austin for awhile now, it was great for Chris to come back to San Antonio and reunite with classmates, friends, and fans. As the SABS Fiesta show, Chris was proclaimed Lifetime Honorary Member Artist.

Houston - January 2019

We were asked back to Shakespeare Pub. Shakespeare was the first club that we performed at in Houston many years ago. This was a special Saturday show, so a casual roadtrip was had. Our friend from Lake Buchanan and guest drummer John Carpenter came down with Sam and we made it to Houston in real good time. A visit was made to Bart Wittrock at world famous Rockin' Robin Guitars. Bart was able to come by the show later to play a set with us. Houston's Brad McCool, on guitar/vocals, and "Big Larry" Evans, on bass performed with Smokehouse. And to top it off, our dear friend Richard Stewart made BBQ and brought dinner to the club to feed the troops. It was a great evening for everyone. And the dance floor was busy all night long!

A Weekend with Shawn Pittman - January 2019

As often happens, coincidence of schedules allows for special shows to come about. Third week in January saw Smokehouse hooking up with Shawn Pittman, recent inductee as a Honorary Life Member Artist of the San Antonio Blues Society. Shawn and bandmate Jay Moeller were both inducted at the 2018 Robert Johnson SA Sessions, where they were the featured performers. We had a great show with Shawn as our guest for this Smokehouse Showcase at The Cove. This show was also featured as a SABS coPro. The rhythm section had Jason Crisp on bass with Jamie Krueger on drums. Scott, Sammy, and Shawn provided the guitar work and vocals.

WHAT A BLAST WE HAD IN HOUSTON!

Smokehouse played The Big Easy and what a show it was! In our audience we had such Houston top cats as Texas Johnny Boy, Jonn Del Toro Richardson, and The Mighty Orq. On stage we had Houston's Brad McCool and Albert Storo performing with Smokehouse for the show. To the Houston Blues Society and fans of the Blues, thank you for coming to our show, and all the blues shows in town. To Tom and his great crew at The Big Easy, your stage is the world! All of you are keeping the Blues jumpin' in Houston!

SNAPS FROM THE PAST

 

 

august was a blast ...

Saturday August 12 Gruene Grove in New Braunfels

Our first time performing at The Gruene Grove was a stormy day to start with that turned into a great show! Whether or not the show was going to go on due to inclimate weather in historic Gruene this particular Sunday was decided practically at the last minute - the show went on, as it must, and it was a hit! Jason Crisp sat in on guest gutiar and Jamie Krueger was on drums. And we're back in September! 
 

Pre-show stage shot ... A great stage they built

We were worried about the weather but the afternoon went off without a hitch

Everyone sings! But we forgot to tell Jamie!

Friday August 17 The Big Easy in Houston

Back to Houston to The Big Easy! Easily one of our favorite places in the world to party. We loved seeing Tom and Crew at the 'Easy ... We had dancers all night and the vibe was incredible. It's always a blast having Snit on drums working with DC keeping the high-energy rhythm going and the dance floor packed!

Saturday August 18 Billy's Ice House in New Braunfels

This was a GREAT GIG! Picked up this premier show at Billy's at the last minute and we absolutely tore it up with guest guitarist/vocalist Charly Sardo and Gino Macias on drums. What a beautiful setup! Smokeghouse appreciated the efforts by Forrest and Adam and all the crew at Billy's for your hospitality. And a special thank you to Kody for helping make this event happen

a fantastic july it was ...

Friday July 27 The Truck Yard in Houston

Premier show for us Friday Night - The Truck Yard in Houston. This place is an open air venue filled with serving stations and foodtrucks, a stage for the band, and a carnival ride! Located in Houston's old warehouse district, The Truck Yard is an exciting place to go to and hang out at for a few hours. We were well received and we thank the staff and security crew for all their help and hospitality. The next time you get to Houston you have to drop in. Even better ... schedule a weekend in Houston the next time Smokehouse is at The Yard!

 Friday July 13 Shakespeare Pub in Houston
We returned to Shakes in Houston, site of our first Houston performance ever! San Antonio friends of the Army Granvil and Sylvia Poynter were in H-Town for the weekend, so they came by to see Smokehouse. As a full-fledged member of the Army, Granvil played a set with us and lit the place up. Our buddy and member of Smokehouse The Mighty Orq opened the evening. It was great seeing Orq and Miss Jamie again. The whole evening was a blast, and it was extra special seeing the Poynters there, as well as our good friend Richard Stewart. And as it happens we had some of other Houston fans of Smokehouse that also came by to enjoy some boogie!

Saturday July 14 Buchanan Dam Beach Club at Lake Buchanan
It was the Last Boogie at the Club ... After many years Mary and Sam are closing the Club and taking time to enjoy life. They decided to have one last fling at the club so they threw a private party to enjoy with some sepcial friends and musicians that had become part of the fabric of the Club. So Mary asked The Mighty Orq and Smokehouse Guitar Army to perform the last gig. We had all the musicians up on stage througout the night and it was a stone cold gas! It was Boogie and BBQ! Smokehouse has come to love the area up there - both fans and musicians. And we have had many of the area musicians perform with Smokehouse and it has always been a superb show. We wish Mary and Sam all the best and thank them for doing so much to support live music and musicians!
Thank you both so much!

APRIL SMOKEHOUSE DOUBLE DOSE OF THE
BOOGIE - SAN ANTONIO AND HOUSTON!
 

We had a BLAST playing at the Big Easy in Houston. Long time All-Star of Smokehouse Brad McCool reminds us of the special bond between guitar players and their equipment. Brad has been marketing his new amp safety seat minivan accessory for guitar players and their amps. Eveyone else in the cargo bay!

And, while leaving Houston on the return trip to San Antonio, we caught the blues show on KPFT 90.1FM hosted by Nuri Nuri. Smokehouse donated to help fund Nuri's show on Sundays. We call on all Houston area musicians, especially member bands of HBS, to help keep KPFT going.

Fortunate we are to have performed with T-Bone through the years. Along with his musicianship we appreciate
the man himself. There was so much more to Steve than his drumming. Sharpness, intelligence, and charisma.
His recent passing has shaken those of us in his world. He was always where his friends were. And now he has
been booked for the greatest gig of eternity. Spoken well of ... he is. Missed ... he is. Loved ... he is.
RIP T-BONE.
