The Smokeboss Militia is the newest project of Andy 'Smokeboss' Mensing, former guitarist in Rat
City Riot, and a litany of other bands you probly never heard of. Recently relocated to South Florida,
The Smokeboss met an incredible wealth of remarkable musicians, and was somehow able to get
them to form a band that is rapidly gaining ground and getting most positive reactions from
audiences wherever they play. The Smokeboss is joined by Jeffrey 'The Viper' Sullivan on lead
guitar, Lucia 'Shash' Hare-Leahy on Banjo, Mandolin, and harmonies, Georgette 'Jet' Afanador on
Accordion, and Arturo "Nickname forthcoming' Afanador layin down that nasty Bass. Completing
the band on drums is the great Bill Meredith of ‘The Cravens ‘ fame.
Although deeply rooted in Underground Punk, Mensing always refused to limit himself to one
'genre'. Rock, Blues, Country, Soul, Punk and Irish are just some of the categories he draws from in
the hopes of creating an experience where people hear some songs they know, meet some songs
they don't, and generally just have a good time. Good songs are good songs, doesn't really matter
what you call them. So a Smokeboss set is usually an eclectic mix of songs from every corner of
the spectrum while also featuring his own original creations. The Smokeboss has enjoyed 3
successful tours of Europe, and is gearing up for a 4th tour soon! The Smokeboss is proud to
announce the release of 'Smokeboss Hot Sauce' from local SD company Awesome Hot Sauce! You
can get yours from or at the shows! A new record is in the works!
