SNAKECHARMER Performs Live For First Time

New classic rock outfit SNAKECHARMER was finally introduced to the industry on December 5 with an intimate launch party, where selected members of the press listened to an exquisite four tracks appetizer, equally split between unforgettable WHITESNAKE classics and SNAKECHARMER's own unreleased work. A special guest appearance with URIAH HEEP at London's Shepherds Bush Empire completed the launch on December 8, introducing the band to the general public. Among the party's attendees were leading journalists from the BBC, Classic Rock magazine and Planet Rock, as well as cast and musical directors from West End rock shows. They were treated to a playback of newly recorded versions of "Fool For Your Lovin'" and "Here I Go Again" and given an exclusive preview of newly penned tracks "Smoking Gun" and "Turn Of The Screw". The two new songs were not performed at the Shepherds Bush Empire show, where a well-received selection of WHITESNAKE hits was greeted with a very enthusiastic, goose-bump-inducing sing-along.

Six of the U.K.'s most highly-esteemed and experienced rock musicians have joined forces to create SNAKECHARMER. Original WHITESNAKE members Micky Moody and Neil Murray have teamed up with Laurie Wisefield (WISHBONE ASH), Harry James (THUNDER, MAGNUM), Adam Wakeman (OZZY OSBOURNE) and Chris Ousey (HEARTLAND) to bring you classic twin-guitar based rock as it should be played.

The list of world-class bands and musicians that the members of SNAKECHARMER have collectively played with runs into literally hundreds: Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, Jeff Beck, Gary Moore, MAGNUM, QUEEN & PAUL RODGERS, just to name a few.
