San Jose’s own JC Smith is quite possibly the definition of old school cool. Wielding his gorgeous Gibson 335, Smith has played classic-sounding soul blues all across the world, most recently releasing a live album with the South America All Stars. Smith may think globally, but he also acts locally; he hosts T-Bone Taxi under the name Johnnie Cozmik for the outstanding heritage station KKUP and is a pillar of the Silicon Valley Blues Society. Smith is a terrific stage personality, and the audience at Poor House Bistro Saturday will find him irresistible.
