San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a liver performance with the JC Smith Band on Friday, May 2nd, 2014 @ 7pm in the Market Garage.
J.C. Smith began his performing career as drummer for the Back to Back Blues Band. In 2000, he emerged from behind his drums, armed with a Gibson 335, and attacked the Blues as if masters like T-Bone Walker, Albert King, and Johnnie Guitar Watson were guiding him. Smith has toured throughout the United States, Eastern Europe, Mexico, and South America to sellout crowds and feels that his goal in life is “to keep the Blues alive and take the message to the people.” The J.C. Smith Band’s current release, Defining Cool, entered the Living Blues Radio Charts at #16 and spent 20 weeks on the Roots Music Report. Apart from his rigorous performance schedule, he is also a force behind the new Silicon Valley Blues Society.
