Biography

A power pop/rock group with modern and classic rock and roll influences. Fronted by Holland Zander, the daughter of Cheap Tricks Robin Zander. This band brings influence, talent, honesty, and passion to the music they perform.

A female fronted five piece rock band rooted in Rockford, IL. The Snaggs are an original band whose music ranges from aggressive hard rock to beautifully landscaped ballads. Singer Holland Zander(featured on Cheap Trick's "Silver" DVD, Big Hello's "Orange" LP, and Nicholas Gunn's "a Christmas Classic") has a voice of innocence and at times a rowdy in your face attitude that can instantly take control of an audience. The band: Ed Dulian (guitar), Micky Rosenquist (Drums), and Karl Ropp (Bass) has the intensity to match Hollands voice perfectly. The Snaggs have been featured on the WB networks hit show "Dawson's Creek" and have been a "must see" band at the International Pop Overthrow Festival for the last four years. The Snaggs successfully sold over 1,000 copies of their first CD "Heavier than a ham sandwich" within the first 10 months of release, and have a mailing list of fans in the thousands. The Snaggs have had the honor of supporting many great bands including Cheap Trick,Nikka Costa, DaDa, E.I.E.I.O., Cherry Monroe, Lennon, canadian girl rockers Tuuli, and many more great regional acts.
The Snaggs are primarily a regional act and mostly stay close to their roots in the midwest, but have played areas of the west coast and are most willing to travel to promote their music. The Snaggs have had the honor of playing all the Big Gigs in the midwest including Summerfest (Milwaukee), IPO (Chicago-4 years in a row!), Taste of Minnesota (St.Paul), On The Waterfront (Rockford),the Midwest Music Summit (Indianapolis) and the Motor City Music Conference (Detroit). The Snaggs also recently added a RAMI award for best "new rock"band 2005. The Snaggs perform original songs but do have a wide selections of rock covers to surprise the audience, and sometimes themselves. The Snaggs are a group of good lookin', hard workin', and hard rockin' MoFo's, so check them out at a venue near you!

The Snaggs are also a full Jagermeister Music sponsored band, which brings show promotion to the next level!
