On Friday April 3, classic rock and folk duo Smith & Tucker performed at the Thumb Coast Brewing Company. The local musicians perform classics from the 60s and 70s, covering artists such as Cat Stevens and Neil Young.
Doug Tucker and Ron Smith are both residents of St. Clair, but grew up in Detroit. The musicians met when they were teenagers in 1981 when they performed in the heavy rock band Illusion.
Smith & Tucker are not new to the area and play at venues all over downtown Port Huron including Lynch’s Bar & Grill as well as at Thumb Coast Brewing Company.
Jesse Peart, 21 of Port Huron and bartender at Thumb Coast Brewery, said, “They’re awesome! They’ve been coming here a long time.”
Patrons such as Mike Mellick, 27 of Port Huron, couldn’t complain. “I support music where I can. There’s always good live folk music here,” Mike said, “I also like to support my local brewery.”
While Smith & Tucker don’t have a set schedule, they intend on playing at the local bars whenever they can this summer.
