SNAKE DAVIS & THE SUSPICIONS  FRIDAY OCTOBER 21st  £15

Twenty years ago, in the student bar of Leeds Polytechnic, “Snake Davis and his Alligator Shoes” were born . a soulful unit playing sax versions of Stax, Motown and Atlantic classics. They went on to be embraced by the Northern Soul scene. They lit up the Astoria Ballroom and Central Station, Leeds as they played to some of the most passionate and committed music-loving crowds anywhere in the world.
The passing years have scattered the individual Band members to various parts of the world but the nucleus of, Snake, Bass man “Dangerous” Dave Bowie and Guitarist, Mark Cresswell come together every year or so to back visiting American soul stars.
A few years the three decided to re form the SUSPICIONS ( a storming 8 piece with Brass and girl singers ) and take to the road doing their OWN show again for the first time in 13 years!

Snake Davis has recorded and performed live with more famous musical personages than you could shake a stick at, Ray Charles,Take That, Cher, Kylie Minogue, Paul McCartney, M-People, Eurythmics, Lisa Stansfield and Edwin Starr to name but a few. Evidence, if it were needed, of what a top notch entertainment this is going to be.

 With the fantastic Soul Preservation Society providing an authentic Northern Soul disco afterwards this really does promise to be a night to remember not just  for soul afficianado’s but for any music fan who knows a good thing when they see it.
