BRILLIANT saxophonist Snake Davis, below, is heading back to Huddersfield.
He is a musician of almost unparalleled gifts who has played with the best in the business through a career spanning three decades.
He will be at the LBT with his band on Saturday, May 14, at 8pm.
His spokeswoman, Sally Hare, said: “Snake is really looking forward to coming to Huddersfield as he has some very loyal fans here.
“Pupils from local schools where he has previously provided demonstrations often come to shows and tell us how he has inspired them into achieving more, not just musically but across all aspects of life.’’
The band bring together some of the finest musicians in the industry.
Snake is so well known in the music industry for his saxophone playing that his colleagues describe him as being on the speed dial button of every major music studio.
It's true that his biography reads like a who's who of the music world, but Snake does not hog the limelight.
He lets his band members shine too. His long time co-writer and producer Paul Birchall will be on keys showing how versatile a pianist he is, he can turn his hand from classical to techno in the blink of an eye.
The bass player, Simon Goulding, shows off his talent on stage as well as bringing his fun personality to the band that injects the warmth and passion that so much of Snake's music is about.
Finally, Snake spotted the drummer, Ali Thynne, while he was still in college. He’s already quoted as being the hottest young musician to leave Leeds College of Music in recent years.
These exceptional players will be performing self penned numbers as well as a variety of popular classics such as Michael Jackson’s Human Nature and maybe even a jazz standard or two.
Snake is also an accomplished player on flute, whistle and Japanese Shakuhachi – and plays them all at his concerts.
Some consider his music to be jazzy, but it’s also funky and always soulful as his passion for the craft is clearly conveyed in his performance.
Tickets are £12 in advance or £13 on the door.
