The Smokin' Burnouts were formed in September of 2013. After a 12 year break from playing in bands, frontman Steve Lumm decided it was time to start playing again and quickly hooked up with bass player Clay Fiske. In June of 2014 Scott Williams joined the band on drums.
All the Burnouts grew up on a mixture of punk rock and country and all started their musical "careers" in punk bands which lends to a strong DIY work ethic. Give them a listen and you'll hear The Ramones, Howlin' Wolf, Dick Dale and Johnny Cash all rolled into one Texas sized burrito.
Their first show ever was during SXSW 2014 in Austin, TX and were featured in a Doritos video and their song Route 666 was featured in 5 other commercials for Doritos.
In 2016, we welcomed Robert "Quarter Moon" Ortiz, on trumpet, into the lineup as El Mariachi. Robert's trumpet has added an undefinable dynamic to the sound.
