Paul Pigat (Guitar, Vocals)

Originally from Toronto, Paul has been playing professionally since the age of 13. Departing from his Rock and Roll roots, he graduated from the University of Toronto in 92 with a Bachelor of Music Theory and spent the next few years jumping from band to band playing any style of music that was in demand all the while teaching at the Eli Kassner Guitar Acadamy.

Paul moved to British Columbia in Aug. 94 and began concentrating on what came most naturally to him: Swing, Rockabilly and Jump Blues. Since then he has formed the Smokin' Jackets, performed with many different bands and recorded for such acts as Neko Case, Flatland 6, Carolyn Mark, and Cousin Harley and the Piglets to name a few.

A love for aggressive tempos and authentic tones gives Paul a distinctive sound that's hard to miss.
