"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!
