Smithville

 

Smithville are a 5-piece band based in Brighton, UK playing funky organ-driven instrumental soul-jazz, hard bop and funk. We also occassionally go out as a 6 piece with a guest vocalist.

 

Our name is a tribute to the great "Smith" jazz organists - Dr Lonnie, Jimmy, Johnnie "Hammond" and to the Blue Note album "Smithville" by the great, underrated hard bop trumpet player Louis Smith.

 

Smithville are:

 

Alice Hawkes - organ

John Harris - guitar

Keith Baxter - bass

Phil Naylor - drums

Andy Pickett - baritone sax and flute

 

We occasionally have Jon Gilhooley or Matty Eeles guesting on vocals.
