The Snails are an eclectic act specializing in various forms of Jamaican music, blended with ragged 50’s rock ‘n’ roll and the sweet sounds of American soul. Todd Fausnacht fronts the band on lead guitar and vocals, complemented by Tim Hildebrand on rhythm guitar. The driving beats spring from the rhythm section with Josh Parry on drums, Ben Parry on bass, and Matt McLeod on organ. Though Fausnacht’s vocals lead the group, it is not uncommon for the voices of all five members to come together in cascading harmony.
Fausnacht describes The Snails’ music as “poetry dressed with tune,” although the band comes off as an aggressive, energetic outfit. After extensive touring in support of their latest release, “Songs From The Hydrogen Jukebox Vol. 1 and 2”, The Snails have recently returned from a brief hiatus. With new material and familiar vibes The Snails set out to bring their brand of floor stompin’ sounds to audiences nationwide.
