At A Glance
It's what they call American Funk: funk, jazz, blues, bluegrass, and reggae rolled up, then lit on fire. Music veteran and versatile drummer Elga Edmonds, who has shared the stage with many greats, leads Blue Smoke with sincere vocals while weaving intricate, percussive drum and cymbal patterns. Guitarist Orpheus Golden sears ears with fiery blues, then slips into a funky reggae or launches an epic jam. With improvisation based grooves, bassist and vocalist Greg Iteen intertwines slaphappy funk outs with psychedelic jams creating momentum-filled crescendos of thunderous energy. Under the influence of icons of the past like Sly Stone, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix, The Meters, The Grateful Dead, P-Funk and Bob Marley, Blue Smoke delivers a new brand of original funky psychedelia that has audiences spinning, and, although a newcomer on the Chicago scene, music lovers of all ages are embracing the sound and feel of a live Blue Smoke experience. The band is rooted in the Midwest and committed to growing both musically as a band and communally with fans. See you in the Smokerâ€™s Section!
