As a representative of the Relay For Life in Oregon City, I would like to send a huge thank you out to all of the members of the Sandy Saunders Band. Your performance was not only appreciated, it was ENJOYED!!!! Your band was on the feedback forms a "favorite" moment of Relay. And of the "things to repeat", your band was top in that category!
- Oregon City Relay For Life (American Cancer Society)


As a venue owner that hosts 150+ acts per season, it is a pleasure to work with the professionals that make up the Sandy Saunders Band. Clear and diligent communication in advance. On time for set up. Performed as agreed. Nice mix of popular covers and originals. Good connection with audience. Performed beyond expectations. Courteous throughout. Hope to have them again.

..."No matter how you find them, you will never forget the on-stagefeel of power, soul, and passion that come with the Sandy Saunders Band. - Positively Entertatainment


"Not many bands begin a set with a Dixie Chicks cover, throw some tasty originals in the middle, follow it up with Purple Haze and have the set flow flawlessly"......."We don't know if the southern influence or the UK heritage, but there is definitely someth in this combination that makes this band stand out."......."the Sandy Saunders Band seems to take all (thier)muisc styles, throw'em in a southern stew and serve it up with Louisiana Hot sauce." - Positively Entertatainment


Discography

In 2008 Sandy, with the help of Bob Love, Chris Miller(Dave Alvin, Lucinda Williams), Greg Jackson(Jackson Road), Stevie Marie and Kevin Eddinger recorded an EP, " A TASTE OF SANDY SAUNDERS." Although "A Taste" was just a sample of Sandy's music in true country form, it introduced many folks to her great original music like "Shoot Myself", "Honey-dew" and "White Sand & Margaritas". In 2011 Sandy and Billy Lindsay recorded "Who need's 'em" a semi-acoustic mix of originals plus one cover. The Sandy Saunders Band is currently working in the studio on a full length all original L.P. due to be released in 2012.

Bio

It's no surprise that this group is considered as one of the top bands to come out of the Northwest in recent years. The Sandy Saunders Band, lead by Augusta, Georgia native, Sandy Saunders, is a group of truly world class musicians. Upfront, Sandy is known as a person who pours her heart and soul into every performance and every recording. Sandy is not only a powerful vocalist and guitarist, but a first class entertainer that will bring crowd to its feet and keep them there throughout the show. Sandy's own brand of country-rock & classic-rock stems from such influences as, Susan Tedeschi, Lucinda Williams, and Janis Joplin, to rock artists like Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.

Alongside Saunders on stage is Glasgow, Scotland's Billy Lindsay. Positively Entertainment magazine once wrote: “There seems to be a perfect balance from the power vocals of Saunders and ultra tasty guitar licks from Lindsay, in every song they play.” It went on to say: “We don't know if its the southern influences or the U.K. Heritage, but there's something in this combination that makes this band stand out from the rest.”

The Sandy Saunders Band's rhythm section is made up of Scott Cwalinski on drums and Jeff Woodcock on bass. Scott joined the group after making a name for himself as one of the top drummers on the Las Vegas strip, where he spent 14 years playing alongside countless headliners such as Joe Walsh and Pat Benatar, just to name a couple. Bassist / vocalist, Jeff Woodcock, is also known as a top pick bass player in the Northwest on stage as well as in the studio. Jeff's vocals are a perfect complement to rest of the band.
