We had a wonderful evening - it was even better than the last time at The Mart, and look forward to the next time. The CD was a good buy and is being well-played!
27th April 2019 Glusburn Institute. I was completely blown away. This quietly spoken man turned into a raging torrent of talent. What a masterful musician! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Big thanks to all the guys in the band for a great night.xx
Been to the classic sax solos evening in Glusburn (not Gisburn Chris) what a fantastic night, absolutely loved every minute. This is the second time we have seen Snake and he was better than ever
Great concert tonight in Glusburn. Couldn’t see Simon which was a shame as I love watching him- he was hidden behind amplifiers! Nevertheless a brilliant night. Thank you Helen & Alan from Stockport.
Went to a BOP3 gig at Threlkeld Village Hall with slight aprehension as I'm more of a rock and blues fan, but was blown away straight from the start. Great music played by three great musicians and truly nice people. Even got a hug off Helen after the gig.
Hi just to say thank you for the session on Sax School with Nigel Really good some cool tips being a lover of soul music and a big Jr Walker and Aretha Franklin fan Only been playing from scratch for a year long way to go its fun trying mind you not sure the wife thinks that . Cheers mate. Regards Bernie
Hi Snake & Band, Woweee!! What a night at Clitheroe. Thought the roof was coming off!! The younger members of our group are still 'buzzing' after two weeks. Looking forward to The Cinnamon Club and a BOP gig. Best wishes to you all. Trevor Shirley.
Thanks Snake and your mates for Friday evening at Wakefield...it was wonderful to be transported to a different world outside of work for a few hours.
Thank you SO much for your amazing performance at the Plough Arts Centre Torrington last night. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Hope The Oval goes well tonight!!!!!!!!!!
The usual superb renditions at Great Broughton on Friday, 25th Jan 2019. The musicianship on that small stage was immense. Newcomers sitting next to us were boundless with praise. Again, as usual, we will seek you out again. I salute you, not you me!!
Many, many thanks Snake and the band for another magical night of great and exciting music at The Cliffs Pavilion, Southend. Real friendly and comfortable venue. Still Crazy was simply sublime!! Our friends and relatives from Herts now members of the fan club. All eagerly awaiting our next Classic Solo gig.
Thanks Snake and the boys for a fabulous night at Queens Mill Castleford. The inaugural gig at this exciting new venue. The band blew everyone away. Please come back again in 2019.
Saturday evening 27th Oct, St Pauls church Birkenshaw. Having seen Snake play on other occasions, we know we were in for a good gig, but nothing had prepared us for this, it was perfection They were on fire. Great combination of Acoustics, crowd and a band having a good time, you could feel it, ELECTRIC
Many thanks to Snake and the band for a brilliant evening in Yealand Village Hall in North Lancashire. It was thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. It was a great set with fantastic input from every member of the band. Chris Bannister on vocals was amazing. Look forward to seeing you all again in the beautiful village of Yealand.
Thanks Snake and all the band members for a most memorable gig at Helmsley last night. A great set with a mix of styles allowing all of you to show off your incredible skills and talent. We look forward to the next time.
Great show at Havant was really fun, enjoyable and entertaining. Clearly a very gifted musician with a great deal of modesty. Tight talented band so what's not to like. If he is playing near you make the effort you will not be disappointed.
Really loved last night's gig at Ripley. How you showboated those great sax heroes was fab entertaining and inspiring. Sorry to pester about coming round for another session in Lincolnshire - but if it's ok I'll plan for late Oct this year. Your stage stuff just gets better Chris
Hello to all the band. Blown away by seeing you all at Old Fire Station in Carlisle Friday 8 June. The passion from Snake with his playing and talking to his audience is something that will live with me for a long time. First experience live for us. My wife was entranced by the bond between artists and audience. Her favourite instrument is the sax and our 13 year old granddaughter is learning to play. Next time in Carlisle our whole family will be with us. This music has to be heard. Thanks all.
seen Snake many times in Barton and loved ever gig now in skipton and looking whats near for future You always so enoy your music we love it
Hi Snake & Band, Another great night of exciting and soulful music last Friday at The Buxton Opera House. You made many, many new fans. A big vote of thanks for the beautiful 'How sweet it is to be loved by you' birthday tribute. Regards and Best Wishes, Trevor & Mij.
Hoping to get to your gig in Cardiff, with a view to booking you for our Gwyl Ynysybwl Festival in August 2019. Looking forward to it. Tony
Fantastic night at The Concorde, Eastleigh, 12th,worth every tedious one of the 134 miles of Friday traffic to make this one. The evocative finale of Going Home, followed by my request for Will You given as an encore just tugged at our emotions. My brother and his lady were first timers with your music, and like me, are now totally smitten. Come south again soon please. Thank you so much.
Great to see you back at Maidstone PizzaExpress again. Last Thursday evening was just fabulous. Our friends who came over for the evening from Berkshire said they got goosebumps listening to the music – but then we had already told them they would not be disapppointed! Thanks also to Paul, Simon and Ali and we can’t wait for your next visit.
Had a real treat on Friday when I was at the gig at the Concorde. It was a delight to see 5 great musicians ( and 3 flies) obviously enjoying themselves. The music, the engagement with the audience, and the playing all made for a great evening. If the Snake Davis Band comes to a venue near you, go and see them. You'll have a great evening and won't be disappointed. Thanks guys.
Roll on Friday when I see Snake at the Concorde Club in Eastleigh, been looking forward to it for months!
Hi Snake and band. Great, great, gig at The Bentley Brook Inn last month. Continuing to spread the word. Waiting now for the Buxton 2018 ticket release and your next Cinnamon Club visit. Party of 20 plus all desperate to hear Still Crazy, Waiting for a Star and Arthurs Theme at The Pavilion. Many, many thanks for such a great nights entertainment.
Fantastic music in Bishops Stortford last Saturday, it just gets better and better. Wish Snake did more performances 'down south', just not practical to travel to his northern gigs. Hope to drum up a bigger audience to make it worth his trip next time, our locals don't know what they are missing!! Thank you, Snake, wish I had known about you before.
Such great music in Diss, Norfolk last night....thank you so much.
I can't wait for Saturday night in Bishops Stortford, my 2nd chance to see Snake perform live. Please, please will he play Will You, I asked on the night then, and he played with such passion. I see its on the list, so looking forward to one of the most haunting pieces ever.
We so enjoyed your performance at the Tivoli in Wimborne earlier this year, and are delighted to see you are coming to Christchurch in a few weeks, your fame precedes you so we will be there with friends and family. All we need is the weather to be kind
I was, and still am, completely blown away by last Friday's performance at The Grand, Clitheroe. Having discovered Snake quite recently, and by accident, I'm determined to see him again. What a warm friendly personality, on and off the stage, and what an artist. He and the band gave a truly memorable performance that was well worth the effort of being first in the queue.
Brilliant night at the grand in clitheroe. What an amazing talent you all have and such a easy rapport with each other. I am blown away by your gift. Thank you
Wow, still reeling from a fantastic evening in Haverhill, the first I knew of Snake and his band, although have unknowingly loved his solos on other artist's recordings for years. I am now a total fan and can't wait for the next time he is here in the south. Can't stop playing the 2 cds I bought that night, and will gradually add all his others.
Wow just been to the gig at the Rigger in Newcastle under Lyme - Jazz and Blues Festival, what a fantastic night! Snake Davis and his band were Absolutely Brilliant! x
Another brilliant show in the Dales, this time Skipton. We'll have to bring a dog for you to auction next time (in your inimitable style of course) See you in June at the Grassington Festival!
Grabbed a second chance to see you while you're down South - in Shoreham. So glad I did! Great entertainment, such wonderful musicianship and warm humour in the band. Interesting to see a change of line up too - a different gig but just as good as Havant. Too many trip hazards (feet sticking out) to dance this time - if I'd gone to the side I wouldn't have been able to see! Maybe next time - when you come back 'down south' - we hope!
Great Page Snake. This encourages all singers n musicians to raise game in this manner. Looking forward to working with you this spring in June 2017
You played my late husband's venue the Beverley Playhouse and were fantastic then. Heartening to read your comment that it is 'much missed' but great to be able to continue to see you play the local area extensively in similar intimate venues.
A friend couldn't make the Barton Ropewalk concert so we bought her tickets. Thus we came across the most talented group of musicians ever! Just magical, full of energy and fun.Thank you for signing the CD I bought and shaking hands as we left. Great style all round. Snake and his band are true stars.
What a fantastic evening at Cobham church ... as ever! Roll on the next time you all venture south to Kent - Pizza Express, Cobham, Sevenoaks, whichever. xxx
Where have you been all of my life Snake?! Such a handsome man and so very talented :-) Today was a surprise Mother's Day present to see you at Buxton tonight - wasn't told about it until c.3pm today - wonderful evening! Can't wait to see you again next time you're 'Up North' In the meantime I look forward to chillin' out listening to your CDs. Thank you for such a wonderful, relaxing evening:-) ad so informative too!
We came to the show in Gainsborough not really knowing anything other then we love sax music. Wow! We were absolutely blown away. What a night of music and the background info was so interesting, enhancing what we then heard. Wish more folks would do that as part of their performance. Just booked to see Snake with the strings in Goole.
I brought five friends with me to the gig at Blackhall Mill on March 17th - they had a great time, as did I. I'm hoping to get to the your and masterclass at Cockermouth in July!
Saw you last night in Gainsborough, what a great show, full house, a nice mix of interesting arrangements, a real master class. You really show and explain clearly what the sax is capable of which is very interesting. Bought your latest CD and had a chat about moving from playing clarinet to sax. What a great guy, keep doing what you do :)
We came to the Pizza Express Soho gig on Sunday and had an absolutely fantastic time thank you xx
We saw you at pizza express in Maidstone Friday night. It was the first time we have seen you and your band and we were completely blown away, absolutely fantastic. We bought your cd and haven't stopped playing it in the car. We are definitely converted and can't wait to see you again. Thank you
All I can say is fantastic! Thank you to Steve and the band for a really enjoyable evening at Pizza Express Maidstone this evening.
Attended City Varieties Club in Leeds this evening to see Snake Davies! All I can say is Wow! Wow! Absolutely fantastic! What a player! I will be making arrangements to see him in Barton on Humber soon. I can hardly wait!
Snake, Love your work with Paul Hardcastle over the years. Don't see any mention of him on this site. Weren't you his only saxophonist on all those tracks? Did you guys have a falling out--hope not?
Saw Snake last night for the first time 16/7/16 I will be first next year when he returns to the Playhouse 2 Shaw Oldham brilliant.
As always Snake Davis and his band were on top form on Saturday at the Maidstone Pizza Express Music Room. They never disappoint and I had a lovely evening with an intimate crowd. Love the Hysteria CD. (Now how did I miss that).
Fantastic evening at The Junction, Goole. Second time we've seen Classic Sax Solos. Saw it at York previously. I will love the CD, so pleased it has got Junior Walker on it. Jane and Dave.
Great to see that Snake is returning South and news of the new album - see you all in Bishops Stortford 2nd April - can't wait!
Great new website. Love the Classic Sax videos. Chris
