Sophisticated. Educated. Medicated.

The Smoking Jackets are virtuoso multi-instrumentalists who also happen to be passionate ukulele instructors. They bring their brilliant bonvivance together for some serious music and comedy. Daniel Ward and Heidi Swedberg are joined by long time collaborators John Bartlit and Craig McClelland for twisted takes on jazz, flamenco, classical and pop standards. It’s like a Pink Martini shaken by Victor Borge and served to Dean Martin… up with a twist!
