Snakecharmer on Friday 19th October 2018
For many at WinterStorm 2017 the highlight was Bernie Marsden on stage in Scotland again bringing back the memories of all those late seventies and early eighties nights of classic blues based rock at The Apollo with Whitesnake.
Well we've got another dose of 'snake derived blues rock with the arrival of Snakecharmer at South Beach Sessions in Troon on Friday October 19th and a special date the night before at The Caves in Edinburgh supported by Zal Cleminson's Sin Dogs.
The British hard rock supergroup was originally founded in 2011 by former Whitesnake/David Coverdale members Micky Moody and Neil Murray along with the perfect mix of high calibre musicians including Laurie Wisefield (Wishbone Ash), Harry James (Thunder, Magnum), Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath live), and Chris Ousey (Heartland).
The band's debut self-titled album was released in 2013 and musically the record showed a finely crafted hard rock style mixed with blues and melodic overtones, akin to Micky and Neil's former band and Bad Company, with hints of early Foreigner as well.
Snakecharmer played live shows regularly in support of the album's release and built a solid fanbase in the UK and Europe. In 2016, Moody left the band and was replaced by the Irish-born Simon McBride on lead guitar.
Second Skin was the hotly anticipated second effort from Snakecharmer and took the listener straight back to the good old days of real rock n' roll played with heart and soul. In the second album the band found its own unique musical identity and in particular Laurie Wisefield and Chris Ousey contributed some very powerful and melodic songs, which still have the Snakecharmer blues-rock distinctive trademarks.
The October dates some of the new songs, together with the best of our established classics, both Snakecharmer and Whitesnake, and showcase the new virtuoso guitarist, the brilliant Simon McBride.
The Scottish dates will feature the brilliant drummer Jon Finnigan who will be standing in for Harry. Adam Wakeman is unavailable for this run of shows and keyboard player Richard Lindup from Inglorious will be standing in. The core lineup remains: Chris Ousey (vocals), Laurie Wisefield (guitar), Simon McBride (guitar) and of course Neil Murray (bass).
