“I had the pleasure of meeting Randy Smith a little over six years ago.  Little did I know he would be one of the best bass players I’ve ever worked with.  He is also one of my very best friends on and off the stage.  Randy is as soulful as the deep, deep south.  His bass playing is magically smooth and tasteful, to say the least.  There has not been one song, whether it be country, R&B or Rock and Roll that he has not played from his soul.  He is a true gift on and off stage.”

"Randy is my go-to guy whenever I need a grooving bass part on a track, His broad knowledge of styles, great playing and perfect sound assure me that he will deliver, no matter what genre I throw at him. Add to that his being a stand up guy and  you need look no further!"

"Randy is a great band member. Always comes prepared and knows the material inside and out.  He can improvise on a dime and sings his butt off. He's the first guy you call."

~ Jeff King -  Nashville Guitarist - Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill, Patti Loveless....

"Randy is a multi-talented instrumentalist AND singer who effortlessly does the job of at least 3 people at one time. When I first saw him perform, I kept asking myself how can someone learn so much in only one lifetime. He's a blessed and gifted friend!!!"  

~ Dane Bryant - Keyboard Player & Music Director - Olivia Newton John, Clint Black, TAKE 6....

"Randy Smith, a.k.a. The Pocket Protector, is the kind of player artists love to work with.  Always sensitive to the singer, he's a passionate & versatile musician who plays with soul and draws from some of the most inspiring influences in modern music.  He is also an uplifting human being because you know he has his priorities straight.  I'll go further and say we often looked to Randy as kind of a spiritual rock in our band all the while bringing the best he had every night as a player and vocalist.  Thank you, Randy!!"
