After a successful North Island tour last September, Jake Stokes & The Smoking Barrels
on bass, and Andrew Richardson
on drums), have reloaded and are set to pull the trigger on a new tour, in February/March 2016. Praised as New Zealand’s answer to Joe Bonamassa (muzic.net.nz
), Wellington’s own guitarist/singer Jake Stokes is an up and coming force to be reckoned with on the New Zealand blues/rock scene. Jake blends old-school music sensibilities, youthful energy, and jaw-dropping chops to deliver a truly unique live experience to his audience.
