For anyone who has read this page knows here at Rock Zone Productions we are a big supporter of SNAKEPIT. That is Southern Califronias' Premeire tribute to all things SLASH (GNR, SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, Velvet Revolver, and even material off of the new SLASH solo CD). SNAKEPIT was of course formed out of The Ashes of another band Beggers And Hangers On which also featured guitarist: MANO who is the band's signature SLASH look alike. While Mano is a dead ringer for SLASH he does a great job of playing like the legendary Guitarist! Mano along with the rest of SNAKEPIT do a great job of keeping the legendary Guitar Player's legacy alive! Not that it was ever dead! Not only does SNAKEPIT put on a great live performance but what they accomplish more than that is that they remind their audience that SLASH is so much more than just Guns N Roses!

SNAKEPIT's very first show was@the House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA. and being a new band they had a huge crowd for their very, first show! Anyone thinking that SNAKEPIT is just another tribute band like all the rest is in for a real surprise! This is a band that oozes talent and is this band is more than just one guy's desire to try to look and sound like SLASH! Like I said what I enjoyed the most about this concert and this band as a whole is that they do a great job of reminding the audience that SLASH is so much more than just Guns N Roses. While they could play it safe and make the bulk of their set the more popular Guns N Roses material the set is made up more of the lesser known material by SLASH'S SNAKEPIT and Velvet Revolver. Some songs that I really enjoyed were "Been There Latley" by Slash's Snakepit and they even threw in "Back To Cali" off the new Slash solo CD. This was one concert where there was really something for everyone! For the Diehard fans they were treated to the necessary dose of "Welcome To The Jungle" and "Paradise City".

Also being that this is a SLASH Tribute you might expect that they'd be a one trick pony and that Lead Guitarist: Mano might be the one doing everything but the band as a whole really shines and delivered the goods! i left wanting more................My only complaint was that I wish the set could have been longer but hey this was their very, first show and they were the opening band.........With a performance like this I guarantee that there'll be more to come and that SNAKEPIT will be around for years to come!

Catch Snakepit's next show@Paladino's in Resida,CA. on September 24th, 2010@9:30 PM. Also check back here at The Rock Zone Productions site next week on 9/22/10 for my exclusive interview w/SNAKEPIT Guitarist: SOLO.

Bio

Snakepit, the only Southern California Tribute to all things Slash! Playing the Guns N' Roses songs you want to hear, songs from Slash's solo projects from 1995 and 2000; Slash's Snakepit, as well as some of his recent work with Velvet Revolver, and now songs from his brand new solo record simply titled “Slash”. As Guns N' Roses tribute bands became the most popular band to cover Snakepit decided they needed to take a different approach and take this a step further, to cover the material they like to play and introduce audiences to more Slash material. With Snakepit you get the great tunes, the best group of musicians from around the Los Angeles area, and the best Slash experience that delivers to you the best of all things Slash.

With Slash's popularity growing higher and higher on a daily basis and Slash being out on tour supporting his new album. The demand for Snakepit will follow along with the demand for a full-on Rock show that only Slash and Snakepit know how to put on. Our diverse material covers everything from the beginning of Slash’s career with Guns N’ Roses, to his most recent solo record which hit shelves in April of 2010. Let's us reach a broader audience and satisfy more of them, and that can only mean more fun for everyone. The music, the crazy onstage energy, and a greatly accurate sound leaves you wanting more every time you see Snakepit live. And maybe for a just second when those stage lights are dimmed your mind tricks you into thinking that the guitar player you’re watching is actually Slash.

With the equipment, the looks, the body language, and most importantly the technique and energy it takes to bring Slash to life in this Celebration of Slash's Music. This is an experience you don’t want to miss. Don't get dragged in to another watered down version of Guns N' Roses look-a-likes of a cover band that sounds nothing like them. Instead grab your wallet, your significant other and your friends and head to wherever Snakepit is playing that night for good times, your friends will thank you. It will be the best live show you will ever see that pays tribute to Slash! Snakepit The Only So Cal Tribute to All Things Slash! Coming to a venue near you! DON'T MISS IT!
