Strange, Heavy, Ugly, and Beautiful: the music of SNOOKY is a cryptic mix. Flashing between metal, jazz, punk, funk, pop, ska, Latin, and ALL rock styles, SNOOKY is an always evolving band based on music, not genre. Their 4 independent releases have prompted numerous press reviews, (including a recent cover-story in up-and-coming Madison area fanzine, "Madhouse Monthly") complementing the dichotomous nature of their sound, and their affinity for mixing brutal with delicate; catchy with bizarre. With a stage show that blends dedication and theatrics, with humor and crowd interaction, SNOOKY have played all around the Midwest, since forming in 1999. In addition to gigging in over 50 of Wisconsins various clubs (including appearances at Madison and Milwaukee's largest venues such as The Rave, The Annex & The Globe), SNOOKY have made frequent trips out of state, even hitting such big markets as Chicago and Detroit. Over the years SNOOKY have shared stages with many top acts, such as Clutch, Cheap Trick, Chevelle, Tommy Lee, Hed (PE), Vision of Disorder, Theory of a Deadman, Murphy's Law, and Dog Fashion Disco. SNOOKY were voted Best Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Group of 2001 by the Racine Area Music Industry Talent Awards and won the Spring Rock Fest battle of the bands in 2002. SNOOKY have been invited to numerous high-profile music festivals, including Summerfest in 2001, 02, 03 &04, and Chicago's Mobfest 2K2 national music showcase. Their music has racked up decent rotation on Wisconsin's top rock stations, such as Milwaukee's Lazer 103, & 102.1 WLUM, Madison's 94.1 WJJO (which has featured SNOOKY as Regional Band of the Week numerous times), as well as Detroit's 89X and countless College stations around the Midwest. SNOOKY's music has also been featured in the listening groups at South By Southwest (SXSW), the worlds most prestigious music showcase. With a re-invigorated line-up bringing a musical re-birth to SNOOKY, expect only fresh, new sounds as they continue to spread their music further than ever before.
