Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
Arkansas & The River Bandits - Michael Thomas (aka Arkansas) moved to the Pacific Northwest from Little Rock, Arkansas about ten years ago. Playing open mics around the area, Ark refined his unique sound, mixing swamp rock with soulful southern singing. Josh Street and Ian Hernandez joined him to create a power trio in 2010, and we recently added Dan Herhold on guitar to fill out our sound. We know the sound is good and needs to be heard! So from there, here we are, sit back and relax until you can't help but dance, and enjoy!
