About Band

The king & Queen Of "TheGutbucket Blues" Smokehouse And Mamie Porter Smokehouse Porter was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the home of such greats as Slim Harpo, Lightening slim, Arthur Guitar kelly, Silas Hogan and many more. His first encounter with the blues that he can remember was at about 9 years old when he heard a friend of the family playing guitar and singing the blues. He was so impressed that he knew that the blues would always be apart of him. In the late seventies and early eighties Smokehouse hooked up with Baton Rouge legendary blues man, W.W. Woolfolk. Woolfolk in earlier years was the drummer for another Baton Rouge legend Lightening Slim. Playing with Woolfolk exposed Smokehouse to other icons such as Raful Neal, Silas Hogan, Henry Gray, Clarence Edwards, Mose "Whispering" Smith, Rocking Tabby Thomas and Arthur "Guitar" Kelly who later became like a surrogate father and mentor to him. Through his association with Arthur "Guitar" Kelly and Silas Hogan he learned what he refers to as the "Gutbucket Blues", and the "Gutbucket Blues" is blues that hits you deep down in the gut. It's blues with a feeling, blues that tell a story, it's a combination of Swamp and Mississippi Delta Blues. In the mid eighties Smokehouse was on the scene doing his own thang referring back to all the things that he had learned from his mentors. With his deep hoarse voice he redefined the term "Gutbucket Blues". Playing gigs in and around the Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Alabama area he became known as the King of the Gutbucket Blues. In the late eighties Smokehouse joined forces with Ms. Mamie formerly known as Mamie Bennett also of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Like many other Jazz and Blues artist, Mamie began her singing career in a southern Baptist church at the tender age of 10. Mamie's father was a blues harmonica player who enjoyed listening to Howling Wolf and Muddy Waters. His interest in the blues greatly influenced her. In t
