With a lengthy song list and a lifetime of experience, The Smarts can cut it in any situation.
At heart, they’re a rock band. But they can get funky, soulful, bluesy and even country with the best of ‘em. They play tunes from the dawn of rock to now their way – and always with passion.
PETE DE JONG (vox/guit) and JIM PORTEUS (vox/bass) have played together for over 30 years. From the heady days of national success and Countdown appearances with legendary Newie band HEROES to local nightclub, pub and club favourites including Django Wrango, The Cool Factor and The Heartfelt Rodneys, Jim and Pete have clocked up countless gigs together.
CHRIS 'LOWIE' LOWE (vox/drums) has played with loads of local legends including the The Idols and Dave Carter and Friends. He’s been a Smart for over 10 years.
This can be a touchy issue in some venues. No probs with The Smarts
From polite wedding receptions and corporate functions to flat out pub gigs, they always play to suit the room and the occasion.
