We are thrilled to welcome back one of the best live bands in Britain. Save the date: Red Snapper return to Ramsgate on Friday 17th November!
Having released records on Ward and Lo Recordings, Red Snapper are well known for their unique sound and passionate live performances, where they embrace dark funk, hip-hop, dub, psychedelic surf, afro-jazz and beautiful, fragile soundscapes.
“Red Snapper never appear to run out of ideas or energy” – AllMusic
Following the hugely successful release of their album ‘Everybody is Somebody’ on Lo Recordings and the accompanying UK tour in 2022, Red Snapper will be returning to some of their favourite venues as well as adventuring to new venues they have never played.
Notorious for casting convention aside, and remaining one of the UK’s most forward-thinking and rule breaking live bands, Red Snapper embrace a unique blend of live, euphoric instrumental Afro-Jazz, Future Funk, Dub, Dark Hip-
Hop, and fragile soundscapes. For two and a half decades they have been folding these ingredients into passionate live shows and a unique listening experience.
These shows will be as innovative and impassioned as ever, featuring tracks from their past albums on Warp Records, V2 and Lo Recordings. The line-up will be Ali Friend (Double Bass, Vocals and Gato drum), Rich Thair (Drums), Tom Challenger (Sax, Clarinet and Keyboards), Tara Cunningham (Guitar and Vocals), Natty Wylah (Vocals).
This is an increasingly rare opportunity to catch the legendary musical force in these intimate gig venues. Could be one for the history books…..!
“A force to be reckoned with” – AllMusic
“Red Snapper are the kind of band who worry about ‘selling out’. They’re also, fortunately, the kind of band who’ll follow their instincts even when it makes no commercial sense at all” – The Guardian
