Since forming in 2008 in Manchester, Snakewater have reformed to their now hard hitting rock and roll band of today.
As life entered different stages, and personal paths had to change direction, they entered a hiatus in 2015 of mutual agreement, but the completion of the eagerly anticipated second album must be finished! In which they did…and what an album it is. Encouraged by The Oakes Brothers, Bobby took the decision to come out of “retirement” as such, and audition new members for the MkV lineup of Snakewater. So it began… number one choice for bass duties was longtime friend Michael Bromley, who jumped at the chance after hearing the new album. After a lengthy search for the right drummer, after numerous auditions, they found their man… James Sydney Shackley. Something was missing… to announce the new lineup, a statement had to be made… a change had to be made… an addition had to be made…. so in came another great friend… Nick Whitehead on Piano and Keys…. and there it was, right away, the sound… The Band!
Currently promoting the new album (Released June 16th 2017), Be in no doubt, Snakewater will leave you feeling a freight train has passed through the stage giving you a breathless live music experienced to match any Rock n Roll band touring today.
See Snakewater at The Lake District Boat Club on Saturday 24th March.
