Smoke Stack Rhino

Featuring a band name that's just one heavy animal away from the blues (just ask Howlin' Wolf), Smoke Stack Lightning from the Yarra Valley near Melbourne are wowing crowds around Australia. In the last 12 months they've appeared at festivals like Blues at Bridgetown, Moruya Blues and Roots, St Kilda Blues Festival, Healesville Music Festival, Echuca Winter Blues and more. They've even entered the wine and food festival circuit with an appearance at Grampians Grape Escape 2024. They've found airplay on Triple J and Triple M, ran Rock The Valley Music Festival and placed on Spotify playlists.

On stage the band's electric live show reaches new heights. Singer-guitarist Ash King is a whirlwind with resonator guitar in hand, his earthy vocals reaching from deep baritone low notes to high screams, drummer Matt Berg pushes the band forward from behind the kit and bassist Shane Andison stays rock solid, holding the whole thing together with an infectious, catchy groove.
