The Burnin Smyrnans announce tour & recording of new album

2009 marks the seventh year of touring for The Burnin Smyrnans, one of Florida’s hottest musical exports.  The band, which is best known for its original blend of reggae, jam, rock, psychedelic grooves and their explosive live performances, have been building a veritable army of fans with their consistent non-stop touring and the success of their most recent studio release, Travel Along. In the past, The Burnin Smyrnans have shared the stage with such notable acts as The Wailers, EOTO, North Mississippi All-Stars and ALO to name a short few, and have been featured on high-profile festival line ups such as Wakarusa, Langerado, Down on the Farm, Bear Creek Festival and 10,000 Lakes Festival as well as hosting their own event, the annual Camp Jam Music Festival. The band has toured throughout the US as well as the US Virgin Islands.

Currently the band is gearing up for what looks to be a breakout year.  The band is booked again at Wakarusa, the Midwest’s biggest festival event.  The current tour also features stops in Texas, Colorado, and New Orleans, as well as a romp through the Southeast US on their way home to Florida.  The band will also be playing two nights at the Boombutywah Festival in Kingston, TN and are scheduled to play the Mossy Headz Festival in Ponce De Leon, Florida. In other news, The Burnin Smyrnans will be heading back to the studio at the end of this month to begin recording their follow up to Travel Along. Consisting of Jeff White (bass, lead vocals), Jason Wigley (Guitars,Synths, Mandolin, Percussion), Anthony Diaz (Drums , Vocals), Jason Rogers (Lead Guitar), Eric Christian (Saxophone, Flute, Vocals), the Burnin Smyrnans have released four studio albums, an EP, and a live album.  Fans can expect even more of what they love on The Burnin Smyrnans seventh release; great sing-along lyrics, thumping grooves, spacious soundscaping, and unforgettable melodies, all fueled by an organic passion rarely found in today’s music scene.
