Johnny Smoke – Crime Don’t Pay Yet!!!

JOHNNY SMOKE is a rock band that has been playing in concert clubs and at festivals around Central and Western New York for many years. Dubbed “Rochester’s Aerosmith” by local radio personality, Unkle Roger (RIP), word of their crowd-pleasing, high-energy performances quickly spread throughout the area. Over time they have had the opportunity to share the stage with several national artists over the years, including surf-guitar legend Dick Dale, and Firehouse.

They followed their victory at The Made In Rochester Competition in 1999 with the release of their debut disc, Crime Don’t Pay Yet!! in 2000. The CD received airplay in the local showcases on stations in the Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo markets; and music from the album was used in commercials to promote the sports programming on WCMF 96.5 fm.
