This energetic fusion of jazz, shuffle, rhythm and blues is sure to bring the first weekend of celebrations to the next level. The Snappers have toured extensively throughout Europe, Scandinavia, Iceland and their hometown of Melbourne. Members have collectively played at The Big Day Out, The Wangaratta Jazz Festival, The Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival. We’re ‘very excited their next stop is Rutherglen.

The members of this group have played on five continents from Kyrgyzstan to Denmark, Japan to Sri Lanka. Highlights include gigs at the Spiegeltent, Kobe Jazz Street, and a stint as house band at Gilded Balloon for the 2006 Edinburgh Festival.
