The Smokin' Joe Kubek Band

Another Texas axeman from the old school, Smokin' Joe Kubek issued his band's debut disc in 1991 on Bullseye Blues, Steppin' Out Texas Style. Kubek was already playing his smokin' guitar on the Lone Star State chitlin circuit at age 14, supporting such musicians as Freddie King. Soon, he formed his own band and began playing a number of bars across Dallas. In the '80s, he met guitarist/vocalist Bnois King, a native of Monroe, Louisiana, and the duo formed the first edition of the Smokin' Joe Kubek Band. The Smokin' Joe Kubek Band began playing the rest of the Southwest in the late '80s. In 1991, they signed to Bullseye Blues, releasing their debut, Steppin' Out Texas Style, the same year. Following its release, the band launched its first national tour. For the rest of the '90s, the Smokin' Joe Kubek Band toured the United States frequently and issued records like 1993's Texas Cadillac, 1996's Got My Mind Back, and 2000's Bite Me. In 2003 Kubek and guitarist/vocalist Bnois King released Roadhouse Research on the Blind Pig label. The duo's second release for Blind Pig, Show Me the Money, came out in 2004. A single-disc collection of some of the best tracks from the Bullseye Blues years, Served Up Texas Style, came out in 2005. A third album from Blind Pig Records, My Heart's in Texas, was released in 2006. Another joint effort with King, Blood Brothers, appeared in 2008. Kubek and King followed it with Have Blues Will Travel in 2010, Close to the Bone: Unplugged, and Let the Right Hand Go…, both in 2012, and Road Dog's Life in 2013. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi

I miss Smokin Joe. I used to hang around with him in the 80 in Ft Worth. Met him a the Cellar in Ft Worth and partied with him many times. He even got me in the back stage at the Dallas Blues festival at Reunion Arena.
Met Bobby Blue Bland and BB King that night.
RIP Joe.

Do NOT miss an opportunity to see these guys live. If you like the CD you will like them live even more. My wife isn't a Blues fan but she LOVES Smokin' Joe and Bnois King.

Judging by Texas Cadillac, I think this blues band is actually quite good. Not sure if I really agree with Stevie Ray Vaughan and Tab Benoit being listed as similar artists. I don't really like those two.
