For those of you who have not heard about Dragon Smoke let me fill you in. This is a super group formed from, Stanton Moore (GALACTIC, Garage a Trios), Ivan Neville (DUMPSTAFUNK), Robert Mercurio (GALACTIC) and Anders Osborne who has played with to many people to mention besides multiple albums with his own band. They flowed through jams touching on funk, rock and some of there own New Orleans special blend. You could tell they were comfortable playing together as a group. Covering “Fortunate Son,” “Landslide” and a quite surprising version of “Franklin’s Tower.” The venue was sweet, holding just around 200, and also had an art gallery filled with local art.
