Greg Hall

“Probably the best guitar player in comedy. Or the best comedian in guitar-playing” ~ The Tennessean

Greg Hall, guitar in hand, delights audiences nationwide with his songwriting, and humorous observations of life in America.

Based in Nashville, Greg headlines comedy clubs around the country. His entertainment career began in Texas as a singer/songwriter after winning a prestigious Kennedy Center award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Musical Composition’. The next decade took him on a musical journey through thirty states, and Europe. He released five CD’s along the way, and shared stages with Shelby Lynne, Vern Gosdin, Jerry Jeff Walker, Eric Johnson, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Keith Urban, Dan Seals, and others.

A near fatal car wreck took Greg out of the game for a while. Determined to get back on stage, he entered the realm of stand up comedy. Always a quick wit, he took his stage experience, songwriting chops and musicianship, and fast tracked into touring comedy clubs around the nation. Now, as a headliner, Greg spends at least twenty weeks a year performing in top comedy clubs.

Greg observes life’s mishaps with a twinkle in his eye, and hope. The result is an achingly fun, comedic musical journey sharing his hard-won, slightly skewed wisdom.

Songwriters Round featuring Marilyn Harris & Friends

Marilyn has been a songwriter for many years and performs her original songs at venues in the surrounding areas as well as here at the Smoke House.  Americana would best describe her writing style.

Friday, July 14th~ 7:00pm – 10:30pm

Robert Burgeis

Robert Burgeis is one of Nashville’s few piano playing, guitar picking artists who is also a seasoned songwriter and producer. With his diverse talent and love for country music, he has been dubbed as ‘The Rednek RokStar’. Burgeis’s smooth voice, peppered with just enough twang and partnered with his masterful yet edgy guitar playing and tantalizing ivory tinkling, is what makes this ‘country-rocker’ one of the finest entertainers of his day.

Runaway Home

runawayhome_2016 The band, Runaway Home, is a “homecoming” of sorts. It was founded by three powerhouse singers looking for a road back to the music they grew up on and loved!

Their sound is strong three part harmony over lyrics that matter, wrapped in an acoustic style reminiscent of ‘70’s era radio. You might call them Retro-Commercial-Americana.
