THIN SLICE/JOHNNY SMOKE & FRANKNBASS

Johnny Smoke started his musical career in New York, where he was born. As a high-school teen in Maryland Johnny played on the streets of Georgetown out side Washington DC. He later moved West to California where he performed with his original band Johnny Smoke and the Inferno for more than 10 years. He also spent many years as an engineer and studio musician. Johnny worked for various sound companies in the San Francisco bay area. He met Frank who was also engineering part time for the same sound company. Johnny and Frank started a band in the bay area in 1990 but were often involved in other projects. They both began touring the US with various artists and lost contact. In 2009 they crossed paths again when they found both posting original songs on the music web site Sound Click.

Johnny was working in Nashville as a music producer and songwriter where he had been living for many years. In 2013 Johnny started working as an bit part actor on the ABC series Nashville and continued for three seasons. Frank had worked for a few years with a touring act called Nasty Habit but eventually settled in Portland Oregon. Frank finished a BA and Graduate degree in Geography and Social Science at Portland State University. He started playing in a local rock band The Hipwaiters. 2016 will be his 23rd year with them. In 2012 Frank began working with John and Kim Kent in The Thin Ice Band. In the summer 2015 Johnny sold his studio and property in Nashville and moved to Portland where he began working as a sound engineer for both the Hipwaiters and Thin Ice Band. Johnny and Frank formed the duo Thin Slice in November 2015. Between the three acts they are working more than 100 shows a year and staying very busy.
