The Smokin' Jackets

Special Events

Paul Pigat and Joey Smith join Michael Kaeshammer and Hugh Fraser for New Years Eve 1999

The Smokin' Jackets are packing Victoria dance floors with young, smartly dressed, jitterbugging, jive dancing enthusiasts.
- Joseph Blake, Times Colonist, Victoria B.C. October 15th, 1998

... and The Smokin' Jackets are pretty hot themselves right now, with a new CD pressed just this week. They've been playing the hard core jump swing of Louis Prima and Louis Jordan for years, but also have fun playing everything from Duke Ellington to the Stray Cats.
- Doug Steedman, Monday Magazine October 7th, 1998

"The Smokin' Jackets is a swing, jump, blues quartet. If you like Colin James guitar driven swing or quirky modernists like the Cherry Poppin Daddies and the Squirrel Nut Zippers, I'd recommend that you check out Pigat and company's recently released recording, 'The Smokin' Jackets'."
- Joseph Blake, Times Colonist, Victoria B.C. October 8th, 1998
