Bill Stewart (Drums)
Originally from the east coast, Bill has been living on the west coast for quite a few years. He began listening to jazz very young through his parents who were both big swing era fans and has never stoped since.
Over the years he has played with many Vancouver Island musicians such as Dave Keen and George Essihos. Recently Bill has been experimenting with customizing drum kits by reducing their size to achieve a higher and lighter tonal quality.
With the swing of a big band and the occasional outburst reminicent of Mitch Mitchell, Bill is essential to the Smokin Jackets sound.
