Sorry to disappoint and hope to see you soon!

Snaggle’s April Mini-Tour

SnaggleAprilDatesBanner

The multi-award winning electric-jazz sensation Snaggle, led by synthist Nick Maclean and featuring the internationally acclaimed jazz-trumpet iconoclast BROWNMAN ALI (Jay-z, Missy Elliot, Paul Simon, Quincy Jones) is embarking on their APRIL MINI TOUR playing shows in KITCHENER, LONDON, COBOURG, and TORONTO! Don’t miss this electrifying and unmistakably groovy jazz powerhouse!

=========================
Sign up to the ADVANCE LIST for a DISCOUNT on cover! (Kitchener, London, & Toronto shows – snaggle251@gmail.com)
=========================

:: Nick Maclean – synth
:: Brownman Ali – trumpet
:: Patrick Panus – tenor sax
:: Anoop Isac – guitar
:: Ben Miller – bass
:: Jinu Isac – drums

“The music of Snaggle, a fruitful sextet based in Toronto, translates into mature compositions and stupendous executions. The members of the band, virtuosos in their respective instruments, resort to a laudable sense of unity and superior taste to creatively orchestrate the nine pieces of The Long Slog, their sophomore feature album… In a certain moment they’re confronting Miles Davis with Medeski Martin & Wood; in the other, you may find the Red Hot Chili Peppers colliding with Incognito or Mahavishnu Orchestra.”
– Filipe Freitas – Jazz Trail (New York, USA)
