Snake Davis is one of the most in-demand rock, jazz and soul sax players in the world, widely known for his solos on tracks such as Lisa Stansfield’s “Change”; M-People’s “Search For A Hero” and “Moving On Up”; and Take That’s “Million Love Songs”. His greatest love is to play intimate venues as himself, his own choice of music with his favorite musicians. Passionate heart-felt uplifting music. Highly accessible and entertaining.

Snake teams up with long time cohort and best buddy, trumpet and flugelhorn player Johnny Thirkell and their mutual friend, guitarist Mark Creswell, for an evening of gorgeous mellow music infused with jazz soul and pop.

Johnny Thirkell has played on hundreds of pop, rock, and jazz recordings, including 22 No.1 records, most recently Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”.

Mark Cresswell is an exquisitely sensitive virtuoso guitarist, well known for his work with Tanita Tikaram, The Suspicions and Burden of Paradise.
