Hailing from Ventura County in Southern CA, After the Smoke comes to you with an original style of Cali Roots-Rock Reggae music. After years of pursuing their own musical endeavors, long time friends come together to bring the world a new sound of reggae. Spending time away since their days in high school marching band, Jacob Marquez reached out to Guillermo and Angel. What started out as a few jam sessions eventually led to a serious search for other musicians to complete the group. Having played in previous reggae groups, Jacob contacted Bill and Fili to join the team. The result was an original blend of roots-rock reggae with every individual member contributing a unique influence of their diverse backgrounds. After the Smoke is on track for success and will definitely be a band to look out for in 2014 as they lead full-force with their first EP.
