The Smoogies

Fri 09/16/2022

What do you call a group of diverse, talented, multi-instrumentalists and composers? You call them ‘The Smoogies’ — a musical smoothie blended with a lot of culture, life experience and most certainly “a vibe.” Want to go on a unique musical journey? The Smoogies provide an unforgettable live experience intentionally crafted to inspire a greater fellowship amongst their listeners.

The Smoogies are Vaughn “V.Keys” Henry (keys, vocals), Dion Kerr (bass), Harvel Nakundi (drums) and David Chiverton (drums) all of whom are formally trained musicians from South Florida. Each member has served interchangeably as leader and accompanist to a variety of performing acts around the world, serving in groups such as Lauryn Hill, Snarky Puppy, Ghost Note, Etienne Charles, and Godwin Louis to name a few.

Most recently, the band won the “Jazz Road” touring grant from South Arts which they will use to kick off the debut tour for their forthcoming second record People Music. With this album, The Smoogies refine their sound as a quartet, deepening both their connection and cohesion. They also hope to continue the band’s philosophy: to make music for the people, and for the people to feel good while listening. Beginning their career with a feature on the digital music series, “The Chivertone Sessions,” The Smoogies quickly developed a buzz, catching the ear of trumpeter Nicholas Payton. This led to their collaboration on the self- released debut Planet Smoogies.
