Sax on Sunday with Dave Bowie Jr.
These guys met over 40 years ago at Leeds College of Music, where they were first study flute players, and have been best buddies ever since. Dave plays in The Snake Davis Band, Alligator Shoes and Burden of Paradise.
Vocals, saxes, flutes, whistles, double bass and a wonderful collection of songs ranging from The Coasters through Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, jazz standards, to Tina Turner.
A powerful collection of songs ranging from deeply emotional to bouncy and light-hearted.
“Snake Davis has one of the most passionate sax styles and simple bluesy approaches a-la-Sanborn heard in these isles for a while”. TIME OUT.
“A virtuoso saxophonist”. DAILY TELEGRAPH
“A brilliant sax player who could wail like the best American players, but was at his best weaving around slow ballads, won deserved acclaim” BLUES + SOUL
“He doesn’t mess about” THE GUARDIAN
“Snake is a joy to work alongside. His musical skills have no limit, in fact he is as free as a bird.” DAVE STEWART (Eurythmics)
