I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Blowin' Smoke Rhythm & Blues Revue/Words Of Praise From The Media

"By the time we got to Harvelle's, the room was already packed with people...The Boss (band leader Larry "Fuzzy" Knight") began their evening's musical journey through their own world of electronic rhythm and blues, funk, rock, and Southern soul. The dance floor was soon flooded; at one point the club had reached it's legal maximum capacity. No one could move - but, listening to Knight and his red-hot ensemble, no one could help but move". Highlights of the evening included the band performing "C.O.D." from their album, a cover of Buddy Guy's "Midnight Train", and their wonderful singers (the Smokettes) covering such R&B chestnuts as "Rock Steady", "I'll Take You There", Bonnie Raitt's "Something To Talk About" and Labelle's "Lady Marmalade".All in all, a performance that lives up to the hype".

"The Blowin' Smoke Rhythm & Blues Band with the Fabulous Smokettes packed Harvelle's with a crowd that was there to enjoy great music played the way it should be. Larry "Fuzzy" Knight has the kind of voice that is perfect for the blues, a little gritty but with excellent range. Guitarist Dave 'Raven' Rutchinski demonstrated his skill on a Stevie Ray Vaughan song, "Crossfire", wringing a ton of emotion out of his guitar. "C.O.D." with John 'JT' Thomas on organ, showcased the instruments along with Fuzzy's powerful vocals. This is music played and sung the way it was meant to be and "Fuzzy" Knight knows how to get the best out of his musicians and singers".
