Smokey Fingers are a Rock/Southern Rock band which officially got together in 2008 in Lodi (Italy); the very first songs, though, were roughly composed back in 2006 during various jam session in which drummer Daniele Vacchini (Smell Of Dog, Gomme Verdi, Stati Limite) and guitarist Diego “Blef” Dragoni (Smell of Dog,Dixie Line,Double Trouble Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute) used to take part. After some changes in the band, Daniele and Diego finally found the perfect fellows for a Southern Rock band: Luca Paterniti and Fabrizio Costa, who also happened to be old friends. Diego and Luca had indeed already played together in the Double Trouble Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute band, whereas Blef had played with Fabrizio in Dixie Line and other bands ever since 1999.
Once the members of the band were chosen, they eagerly started composing new songs together, while developing and improving with lyrics and new melodies the songs which dated back to 2006 as well. The evergrowing harmony amongst the members took its shape into a distinctive and identifying sound, while the compositional cooperation between Diego and Luca (authors of most of the songs) grew stronger and stronger, thus turning more self-aware.
The band's first release was a self-produced EP (“Smokey Fingers”2009); after several gigs all around the country, Smokey Fingers started recording their first album, with the working title “Columbus Way” (under the record label “Tanzan Music”, owned by Mario Percudani - HungryHearth), whose release date is expected between June and September 2011.
