The Smokin' Guns are Chris Topher on vocal and guitar. Chris is a La Grange native who navigates the fertile musical ground between blues, rock & country. His favorite music of any kind is the music that will get your toe tapping, or better yet, get your butt rockin'. Influences include Delbert McClinton, Billy F. Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Freddie King and the list goes on.
On keyboards is Lockhart's Boomer Norman. Boomer is a veteran of the musical trenches. He's played it all, from metal to jazz to honky tonk. He will amaze you with his ultra cool licks.
Holding down the bottom on bass is Mark Lehmann, also a La Grange native. You can't have a building without a good foundation. Mark supplies the best foundation around. He's been around the block a time or two also.
Keeping a steady back beat is Bastrop's Jim Outlaw. Jim's drumming career has spanned the genres too. He is the best in the business.
Chris & Mark played together in their high school days in the 1970's and now they're back together and better than ever!
The Smokin' Guns are a solid dance, party, boogie band that pumps out an irresistible musical gumbo that's just made for catching a groove. Whether it's an outdoor festival, or a smoky juke joint. These cats deliver the goods.
