The Snyders

In the summer of 2011, blues artist Denny Snyder (aka Southside Denny) decided to include two of his three children in his band's live concert presentation. At just 12 years of age, his daughter Lorrie had already appeared on two songs of Snyder's eighth album (Full Circle, 2009, winner of blues album of the year in Québec for 2010), and performed at various festivals with him in the summers of 2009 and 2010 (including the Salon du Guitare of the Montréal Jazz Festival, Mont Tremblant Blues Festival, the Canadian Guitar festival and many others). Denny's son, Philip Snyder, who began playing the drums at 3 years old is already a drum and percussion veteran at age 11. He first performed with his father at the Boite à Chansons de L'Assomption in October of 2010, and in August of 2011 he played both the caron and drum set in his father's shows in Québec and in the U.S.
After the successes of 2011 the trio decided to make this entity an official band and call it simply by their given family name: The Snyders. Deeply rooted in Chicago blues, this band merges a diverse group of musical elements into their sound, making it very difficult to categorize their music. A true product of Québec, this group is also bilingual, and they have several songs in French in their repertoire.
The family ties don't end with the three musicians on the stage. The lyrics of two of their new songs were penned by mother/wife Josée Larose. Denny's oldest daughter, Ariane Larose took care of the artwork and design for the cover of the disc, making the entire project truly familial. The disc is available at their web site,
Since then The Snyders have become an award winning band, performing festivals and concerts on both sides of the border. They are currently performing and working on material for the second album.
