Taking advantage of the opening of the border between Canada and the U.S., “Southside” Denny Snyder arrives from Montreal to light up Wild Rose Moon this Saturday with his amazing guitar skills for both the Wild Rose Moon Radio Hour at 4 p.m. ($10) and in concert ($15) at 8 p.m. A gifted songwriter, Snyder, has played onstage with Luther Allison, Pinetop Perkins, Larry McCray, Sugar Blue, Lefty Diz, John Fogerty, and Duke Tomato. He has produced eight albums of his original material. His “Southside” Denny band performed regularly at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago in the 1990s and opened for incredible acts such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy, Ray Charles, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Styx, Edgar Winter, and The Beach Boys. Denny plays regularly at the legendary, Modavie, in Old Montreal, fusing his blues with the jazz leanings of his bandmates. Snyder’s musical skills transcend the blues reflecting his jazz, pop, and rock influences and his lyrics often amuse or entrance. Whether playing a driving instrumental, like his blues/rock Buttkicker, or his jazzy funky, Nothin’ Doing or singing his quintessentially pristine hymn to the slide guitar, Sliding, Denny delivers a dynamic show full of life and musical wonder. George Schricker, Director of Wild Rose Moon remarks, “He makes it look easy,so easy, that it is only in retrospect that one realizes Denny’s musical genius. The songs are so well developed that they sound as if they’d been part of our societal psyche for the last 50 years.” Denny will be on The Wild Rose Moon Radio Hour at 4 p.m (a radio theater experience with audience participation game show) along with John Bahler, Jacob Moreno, and George Schricker. He will perform in a concert from 8 – 9:15 p.m. Tickets are available at wildrosemoon.com.
