About this artist...

Decade(s) active:


We say:

One of the hardest working bands of the early 90’s pulling huge crowds where ever they went, ‘Chicago Smoke Shop’ (later just ‘Smokeshop’) played a stonking mix of Blues , R’n’B and Stax based dance music .

Emerging from Lower Hutt, they went on to support everyone from George Thorogood to Robert Cray (who personally requested them), and over the years delivered 3 great albums containing the hits ‘Another Man’ and ‘I Can’t Live Without Your Love’. The 3rd album was a Best of compilation called ‘Fusion at Room Temperature’.
