Coal Creek Boys return to Lethbridge for jam fuelled set

E-mail Print PDF

Lethbridge outlaw country band the Coal Creek Boys  don’t play Lethbridge  much anymore, so I had to catch at leThe Coal Creek boys John Paul Smith, Jesse Roads and Sam Paul at Casino Lethbridge. Photo by Richard Ameryast one of their shows at Casino Lethbridge over the past weekend.

 I caught the second set of  the touring band’s June 5 show.

Instead of playing their usual hits, they were in a jamming kind of mood John Paul Smith played subtle and tasteful guitar playing on several new songs including a blues infused jam and a longer song about bootlegging in the Crowsnest Pass.

John Paul Smith, bassist Jesse Roads and drummer Sam Paul played a loose, yet tight set up up tempo country and folk music.

They didn’t have a lot of people there for their second set, but most of the people there were two stepping.

 They ended their second set with a  jam on the Steve Miller Band’s song “ The Joker”  sung by Jesse Roads.
