Smokey Dan's - Authentic Smoked Food

ABOUT DAN

A passion for all things cooked with fire.

Since smoking his very first brisket in a beaten-up bathtub, Smokey Dan knew what the South Coast was missing. So, he set off on a mission to build a smoker that could cater to the masses and create an atmosphere where people can gather with their friends and family to relax around the fire.

With a passion for all things cooked with fire, Smokey Dan’s delivers authentic smoked food and BBQ style cuisine using premium, local ingredients.

A great Smokey Saturday on the way this weekend with Phoebe Jane Music and Don John! 🎵🎶

Phoebe Jane’s music is sweet, sultry, audible chocolate that will make your heart melt. 💖 With a gypsy folk sound, her songs drawn upon the sounds of other artists such as Feist, Missy Higgins and Rising Appalachia.

Front man for the band Don John & the John Dons his sound is inspired by artists such as Kurt Vile, Johnny Cash and J.J. Cale. His foot tapping rhythms and catchy melodies are hard to resist and perfectly accompanied by an “Ice Cold Beer”. 🍺

Free entry from 12pm Saturday 22nd June.

Thanks to Ash Grunwald and special guests Howlin Mitch and Ron Callo Callaghan Music for an absolutely amazing night of live music at Smokey Dan’s! It was a lot of fun!

A huge thanks to our staff, crew and everyone who makes these gigs possible. We were hit with some rough weather that made it impossible to run the show outside, but it was really wonderful to see so many come out and have a great time anyway. Thanks so much to everyone who purchased a ticket to support this show, times are tough for live music at the moment, so it means a lot to us, the musicians and others involved who work in the music industry. 🎵🙏

We have general admission tickets. What is a fair weather ticket and what is the difference between them? Is the show still on and will we get in with our tickets?🤔

You forgot to mention standing room only and no where to sit and eat dinner. Very disappointing Should have been cancelled
