Dragon Smoke is a band that formed as part of Boom Boom Room Presents' New Orleans Jazz Fest tradition known as the “Superjam”. The “Superjam” idea is to put together a band of people who don’t normally play together and see what happens. With the dual vocals of Neville and Lindell, matched with the Galactic rhythm section, the band quickly realized, “We are on to something”and has played every Jazz Fest since it’s inception in 2003. This inception took place at the famed Dragon’s Den, hence the name of the band.
The music centers around Lindell’s blue eyed soul , Neville’s funk and R&B, and Galactic’s groove. Besides a few trips to the West Coast, this band has been strickly playing in New Orleans. With everyone in the band being a leader on their own, it is rare to get this band together. And when it does, it shows that these guys are really having FUN! From the interplay between the members, you would think that Dragon Smoke has been playing shows forever.

plus special guests:
The Humidors churn out their own singular brand of party music that combines elements of hard-hitting funk, greasy soul, vintage R&B, soul-jazz. With the soulful and heartfelt vocals of Andre Cruz at the forefront, The Humidors are in their element playing live, having shared the stage with acts such as Dumpstaphunk, The New Mastersounds, The Meters' Leo Nocentelli, Shuggie Otis, and the late, great Bernie Worrell.
This show marks the end of an era for The Humidors, as it will be the band’s bassist and musical director Eric Podolsky’s final show with the band after over a decade of creating music together.
