Biography

Big B and his Snakeoil Saviors is a fun and versatile band, specializing in swing and jazz with a western feel. Inspired by the great music of the 30's and 40's, we set out to create a band that fuses all the fun of swing music with the great storytelling of old country music. Our fans are young and old because of the timeless quality of the great swing and boogie woogie music that we do.
The band is a treasure trove of professional talent who have played with just about everyone in the business. Our typical arrangement includes Piano, Upright Bass, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Steel Guitar, Saxophone, and Trumpet. We can add players to create a big band sound and often bring in some female vocalist friends to mix things up on stage. The band can also break down into a smaller group doing our standard material, or instrumental jazz more suitable for dinner music.
The core of the band is a hard-swinging rhythmn section of Piano, Upright Bass, Drums, and Guitar. The horn section heats things up even more with blazing solos and unison lines. Then, we add steel guitar and swing fiddle to complete the sound.
