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 together, 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. From playing a full-house at the 1,200 seat capacity Ventura Theater with national headliners El Gran Silencio and Inspector, to performing at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, CA as a top 12 finalist out of 600+ for the Hard Rock Rising Battle of the Bands, After the Smoke is on track for success as they venture out into the world with their recently-released first self-titled EP!
