Great music never dies - It becomes a reality when Smokin' Joe and The Henchmen come to the stage. Smokin' Joe has become a legendary performer on the East Coast. They gave rebirth to the ever popular Henchmen Band, who originated in the 60's - playing the Rock/Soul songs of the 60's and 70's like no one else. The result is a combination of eight multi-talented dynamic musicians playing and singing the rock/soul songs of the 60's and 70's. Smokin' Joe gives new energy to soul music artists such as Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave, Otis Redding and James Brown to name a few.
