Smoke ‘N Ash was a band that was formed circa 1974 with Scott Miller of Orrville; Dave Bennett of Canal Fulton and Jeff Nichols of Massillon. They lasted until the latter part of 1977. I don’t have any notes left from back in the day and a cloudy memory hampers me but I do remember them being a tight hard rock band that played covers and some originals. I can say without hesitation that they played one of the best versions of Train Kept ‘a Rollin’ that I have ever heard. It burned!


Among the many venues Smoke ‘N Ash played over the years was the Thrillseeker in Rittman, Massillon Legion, the 9th Street Union Hall in Massillon, the Moose and Columbo’s in Orrville and various other clubs and outdoor events throughout Wayne, Stark, Holmes and Medina counties.
