The group’s five CD releases have received worldwide recognition including their latest release, Men of the Swamp. Living Blues reviewed their third CD as the best of the year 1995.

“You’d be hard-pressed to find a more authentic American blues band today than Packrat’s Smokehouse. These veterans have been in the swamp for couple of decades now and, like good thick swamp ooze, just get better with age. If you want REAL blues at your event or venue, be smart and put these men on the bill. Hammercy!” – Gary Erwin of Carolina Down Home Blues Festival
