Dustin Bentall and the Smokes
October 4, 2012 @
Roots rock Vancouver fave returns to the Valley with his stellar band. Opening for the Smokes is Archie Pateman and Jack Roland.
In the dog days of high summer in 2008, Dustin Bentall and his Outfit set off for the desert town of Ashcroft, British Columbia to record the follow up to Dustin’s 2007 debut, Street With No Lights. Ashcroft rests on the banks of the Thompson River and was a stopping point during the gold rush with a hopping saloon.
The other desire Dustin had was to have Luke Doucet dueling guitars with Adam. It just so happened that Luke was traveling from Edmonton to Colorado the week The Dustin Bentall Outfit were recording and while Ashcroft may not be the geographical midway point between those two destinations, it was a certain providence that Luke found himself in the desert for a few days. When the dust settled, the tracks were sent down to Vancouver to Steven Drake to mix and Six Shooter was born.
