"We're slaves to the groove and we just can't help it"
The Southbound Snake Charmers are a Blues Rock power trio that use elements of Psychedelia, Stoner, Swamp and Voodoo Blues to conjure up their own unique sound, producing an eclectic experience the band like to call "Big Chunky Grooving Psychedelic Electric Dirty Blues!"
Although the bands overall sound may be hard to pigeon hole, influences of Cream, Rory Gallagher and Thin Lizzy shine through and Chris’ Vocals have at times been compared stylistically to that of Johnny Winter.
Supporting some of their favourite acts like Collard Greens & Gravy, Bo Jenkins and Dave Tice (Buffalo), the band have performed around Melbourne since 2013
The band’s debut EP “The Dirt Blues” was released in 2014 and the follow up EP “Voodoo chicken Shack” in 2016
What started out as 3 guitarists playing their original style of delta blues has progressed through various stages of blues experimentation until reaching where they are today, a power trio.
