The Snacks Blues Band features the powerful, barrel-chested vocals and rhythmic "juke-joint" harmonica stylings of John-Michael Brown; the warm, clean, lead tones and delta-like fingerpicking of Brian Boos on guitar; and are expertly backed by the versatile percussion of Matt Schaeffer. In 2013, they independently released their first album, "Whiskey Won't Make You Forget" and took first place in the St. Johns River Blues Festival. Whenever The Snacks aren't performing live, they are hard at work writing new material. rehearsing and preparing for their return to the studio.
The Snacks Blues Band participated and won the 2018 Regional Blues Challenge, hosted by the First Coast Blues Society at Mojo Kitchen, Jax Beach, on August 19, 2018.
In January 2019, The Snacks will be representing Jacksonville's Blues Community at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. It is a five day event and we will need help to take care of our travel and lodging expenses for this incredible trip. Your donation will directly go to costs of transportation, lodging, fuel, merchandising, equipment and maintenance, food and small necessities. We will also be working diligently to cover our share of the cost.
We appreciate all support and donations to help us take the maximum advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity!
