Joe Smith and The Spicy Pickles are led by trumpet player, Joe Smith, who started the band in January of 2013 to give dancers something to swing to. They're much more than a dance band, The Pickles are preservationists who are helping keep the spirit of a uniquely American form of music alive. The 6-piece band plays a mix of New Orleans Jazz, Gutbucket Blues and early Swing. Smith has been playing trumpet since he was ten years old. He spent his teenage summers marching in a drum and bugle corps, and while at the University of Iowa, Smith helped run Hawkeye Swing Festival where his interest in vintage Jazz music and dance grew into a passion.
The band draws influence from legends of American Jazz like Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Louis Armstrong, as well as the vocal stylings of Slim and Slam. In their very young career as a band, The Pickles have played at swing dance events around the country including Hawkeye Swing Festival, Cowtown Jamborama, Southern Fried Swing, Lindypalooza, and more.
