About Bruce Thomas Smith

Original "transplant" rock

Bruce Thomas Smith

"There is a vibe to Bruce's music that makes you want to play it again, and again, and again... " Eric Turner - ET Productions, Phoenix, AZ Southwest meets Northwest: Texas native Bruce Thomas Smith plays the world's best original "transplant rock." Period. You know, toe tapping music. That bodacious (BODA) guitar slinger thang with a dash of mountain chill, guitar in the driver's seat and a storyteller in the back, top down, cruisin' just below the speed limit, open highway, and tons of fresh scenery. Bruce is comfortable as an acoustic one/two man show, and just as comfortable showcasing his guitar work, songwriting and vocals as a member of the Boda Boyz rockin' three-piece band! Many fans and critics agree, seeing Bruce performing as a solo acoustic guitar/vocal act is every bit as entertaining as the full band (although a bit quieter!)

...And The "Boda Boyz"? A Band? Yes! Something MORE? Yes! All Ages Entertainment? Yes! 2 Men playing 1 Guitar? A sauce pan playing slide guitar? Audience members holding a guitar WHILE Bruce plays it? 8 fingers on the fret board? YES! YES! YES!
