Chattanooga’s funkatieres extraordinaire, Smooth Dialects, will be playing all night.
Smooth Dialects formed in Chattanooga TN, in August 2011 with only two members, Maria (Vocals) & Josh Sable (Guitar) who had a musical vision that needed a full band. The Sable’s went on their search and soon found a drummer and their bass player Ryan Crabtree. Smooth Dialects had their first debut in October that year. While the band played shows in cities locally and surrounding areas (i.e. Chattanooga, Nashville, Murfreesboro, Bristol TN, Atlanta GA, Lexington KY etc.) they still hadn’t found the right mix. In April 2012 however,the band welcomed Chris Smith (Drums/Percussion) and in December 2012 Mr. Golden Styles (Keys/Synth) joined the Smooth family giving them all right pieces to the puzzle. It wasn’t long after that the permanent addition of horns were added with Jay Newsome II and Jovan Quallo.
Maria Sable, daughter of conductor Vakhtang Jordania, is a classically trained pianist whose smooth but powerful voice keeps your soul begging for more. Josh Sable, Smooth Dialects’ very own guitar virtuoso, lays down such a soulful palette of tone one couldn’t help but dance. Ryan Crabtree, a UTC music graduate, seamlessly combines classical technique with jazz theory to fill the pocket. LeBron Arnwine, a music graduate from Lee University, puts the smooth in Smooth Dialects with his harmonic genius behind the keys. Jay Newsome, also a Lee graduate, is an R&B sax powerhouse. Also on saxophone, Jovan Quallo proves that being a sexy sax man can mean so much more. Devonte Coleman proves that last doesn’t mean least showing that percussion can be just as lyrical as the rest of the band by laying down a groove so heavy you can’t help but feel it all over.
One thing’s for sure – you’ll need your dancing shoes!
