“The Show Must Go on”
An almost ancient phrase that is understood the world over. A phrase that Smokie have had to use on a number of occasions, through personal circumstance and tragedy. It’s a phrase that encapsulates professionalism, satisfaction and a will to get the job done, again something that is synonymous with Smokie.
Whilst it was disappointing for Smokie to receive the call from Mike Craft that he had taken the decision to retire, the band now had to make some big decisions…...
Who could take his place?
Who would be right?
Who would fit?
Who could deliver the goods on stage night after night and provide the rest of the band members with confidence that they could slipstream to bring that energetic performance that Smokie fans worldwide have been so used to witnessing over many years?
Smokie, a world class band, needed a world class singer and frontman.
Someone who could maintain the high standards of past frontmen such as Chris, Alan and Mike. So, after some very careful thought and deliberation, Smokie eventually found their man!
Enter Pete Lincoln. A consummate professional, who has a knowledge and understanding of just what Smokie need. Pete is a dynamic singer as well as an excellent songwriter and musician, he has a voice that will take Smokie forward on another chapter of their illustrious career that has spanned over forty years.
As the saying goes “New Blood” ……… Will hopefully, not only take the band from where they left off, but propel them to new heights! There is a new enthusiasm in the camp as Pete takes his place in the Smokie family.
Excitement is a word that currently describes the feelings of all band members for the change that has taken place.
To Smokie, it’s the fans that are the most important and we will see you on stage soon!
