Smith / McKay All Day w/ guest Max Johnson
Smith/McKay All Day formed out of a chance happening four years ago: Two musicians from Texas living in Missoula meet randomly when they both need a new project.
Jimmy Smith’s from Austin, where he co-founded the Gourds. Pat McKay’s from Amarillo, and has played guitar for groups like Hogwild and Cold Beans and Bacon.
Their music pairs Smith’s gregarious, singalong hooks, lyrical quirkiness and heavy basslines with McKay’s fretwork, which changes tones and genres as the tunes require.
