30s & 40s Jive, Swing and Jazz The Smart Fellers are a Northern California based swing band having the distinction of being one of very few bands to have had their first show in an elevator. Alan K. Parks (bass fiddle) and Mark Larson (guitar and vocals) were playing a show at a convention in San Diego. After the show, they had some time on their hands and decided to perform acoustically in the elevator. While playing for four straight hours to great acclaim, The Smart Fellers were born! After a few gigs as a duo, their friend Bonnie Otto, an expert in the art of stride piano, was added. Eclectic influences form the band's sound. Think Louis Jordan and Cab Calloway meets Bob Wills. The band thrills in playing classic rock songs in a retro swing style, keeping audiences on their toes while keeping the dance beat swinging. The Smart Fellers unveiled a new look by adopting the Steampunk aesthetic for certain events. Steampunk can be roughly defined as anachronistic Victorian science fiction. Top hats and goggles, clockwork and steam power.
