Jason Snell and the drummer Julian B. have played at the Denver march pow wow, and the Gathering of Nations in ABQ New Mexico, at the Isleta Casino Concert Hall. It was a blast, we played the same stage that REO SPEEDWAGON was scheduled to play a couple nights later, so that totally rocked.
And I (Jason) got to meet Irene Bedard! Who is totally a nice and sincere person. Maybe that's why I was sooooooooooo shy. So yeah, that was special if not priceless.
I also got to meet one of our fans that same weekend. What made this meeting special is the fact that she is representing our tribe, The Cherokee Nation, nation wide with her title as Miss I.A.I.A.(Istitute of American Indian Arts) in Sante Fe New Mexico. Ms. Laura Moore makes us all proud.
I listened to alot of 80's guitar hero's like Ritchie Sambora, Joe Satriani, and of course my main influence in rock guitar, Mr. Edward Van Halen himself.
Vocally I would have to list Kevin Cronin, Steve Perry, Steve Augeri, Don Henley, Bryan Adams, etc..way to many really to list.
But my roots are in gospel music, thats where I started out as a musician, and still enjoy performing, in fact I recently got the old group together and we've been pretty busy with the gospel music circut, so who knows, may be a project in the future with that as well, we'll see what happens.
Jason Snell uses: squire strats, MM1-OLP guitars with a Seymour Duncan Detonator in the bridge. Crate amplification, line6 guitar amps, Digitech effects, boss compressor sustainer, MXR Dyna Comp compressors, and Nady wireless systems.
