Dustin Bentall and the Smøkes – CD Release Party Live at the Waldorf Hotel
Dustin Bentall’s been around the Canadian music scene for a while now. His two earlier studio albums and an incessant tour scheduled have landed Bentall and his band a solid reputation in the Americana music scene. In the last the band–in one form or another–has opened for John Prine, Pegi Young and played just about every festival and town imaginable. This band has been working hard.
The set wound down with a mix of new material and old. Shine, Three Thousand Miles and Six Shooter were particular standouts of the back half of the set, with Bentall and the gang obviously having a tremendous about of fun on stage.
