Smokestack Lightning are a blues/rock outfit consisting of Rina Scott on vocals, Mark Brett and Drew Luhrs sharing rhythm and lead guitar, Kevin Mather on drums and Peter Reading on bass.
Smokestack Lightning draw from a range of blues influences such as British blues like Peter Green's original Fleetwood Mac, Texas blues like Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous thunderbirds and ZZTop.
The band's name is from an old 1956 Howlin' Wolf blues song and many an audience member has referred to them as the blues/rock express.
