Smith/McKay All Day (Jimmy Smith of The Gourds)
Smith/McKay All Day (Jimmy Smith of The Gourds)
Smith/McKay All Day - two man band that's as full as a 4 piece. Ex-Gourds co-frontman Jimmy Smith and bluesman Pat McKay drum stomp, guitar bang and vocal old Gourds, HardPans, Slo-Red faves and whatever's on the Smitty madness menu this week.

Jimmy Smith is best known for his 2 decades performing with famed Austin, TX alt-country outfit, The Gourds, as one of the two principal songwriters and bass player. Alongside Kevin "Shinyribs" Russell, Max Johnston (formerly of Wilco), Claude Bernard and Keith Langford, the band relentlessly toured the country, playing every festival stage imaginable and recording with the likes of Doug Sahm and long-time Bob Dylan sideman, Larry Campbell. Though The Gourds' days as a band came to an end in 2013, Jimmy has continued playing music as The Hard Pans, the Jimmy Smith System and most recently as a power duo in Smith-McKay All Day with Montana blues fixture, Pat McKay. He currently resides in Missoula, MT, longtime 2nd home to The Gourds. Please check Jimmy's website for more information. http://jimmysmithatx.com/
