Dragon Smoke

Teragram Ballroom

Los Angeles, 90017


Dragon Smoke is a band that formed as part of the New Orleans Jazz Fest tradition of the "Superjam". The "Superjam" idea is to put together a band of people who don't normally play together and see what happens. With the dual vocals of Ivan Neville and Eric Lindell, matched with the Galactic rhythm section, Stanton Moore and Rob Mercurio the band quickly realized, "We are a great band!" and has played every Jazz Fest since it's inception in 2003. This inception took place at the famed Dragon's Den, hence the name of the band. The music centers around Lindell's blue eyed soul , Neville's funk and R&B, and Galactic's groove. Besides a couple trips to the West Coast, this band has been strictly playing in New Orleans. With everyone in the band being a leader on their own, it is rare to get this band together. And when it does, it shows that these guys are really having FUN! From the interplay between the members, you would think that Dragon Smoke has been playing shows forever.
