Tweed Funk is on hiatus through the rest of 2016 while front man Joseph "Smokey" Holman finishes his treatment for multiple myeloma cancer. Smokey underwent a successful stem transplant this fall and as reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by Piet Levy Tweed Funk will be announcing new shows for 2017. Multiple myeloma is a cancer formed by malignant plasma cells. Normal plasma cells are found in the bone marrow and are an important part of the immune system. Piet Levy of the Journal Sentinel recently wrote a nice article about Smokey. We also want to thank American Blues Scene, TeamRock, Big City Rhythm & Blues, and all of the DJs, press, and fans who have given Smokey support by helping get the word out.
