Hailing from the Twin Ports, Danny Frank & the Smoky Gold combines soulful lead vocals with rich harmonies and virtuosic instrumentalism into a genre-blending Americana sound.

Tapers notes: This was a really fun show, it was a release party for a live album they had recorded the previous year. I had been in attendance at that show, and I saw this one pop up and immediately made plans to go. The highlight of the night for me is track 5 of set 1, just a killer 16 minutes or so. Sound is great on this recording, though the second set for some reason has a bit of echo/delay in quiet parts from the SBD portion, not sure why. It doesn't take away from the recording IMO.
