What’s a Nasty Snack, you ask? It’s Tom Selleck standing under a waterfall with a saxophone, eating a ham sandwich. It’s Scooby Doo gnawing on a pair of rawhide drumsticks. It’s that nasty groove brought to you by nine members of a Chicago funk movement that cannot be stopped! Drawing from influences such as Kool and the Gang, Lettuce, Roy Hargrove, Earth Wind and Fire, and Tower of Power, the Snacks have proven to showcase an explosive, horn-driven, pocket-slamming performance at each live show. With a chaotic balance of R&B grooves and freaky horn melodies, the Snacks have developed a sound acclaimed by most as “just nasty!”
Nasty Snacks is a collective of musicians featuring vocalist Catherine Poulos, guitarist Ryan Gac, bassist Martin Farrelly, guitarist Colin Fahey, drummer Keith Brooks, trombonist Alex Wasily, trumpeters Scott Hoecker and Caleb Mitchell, and saxophonist Sean Packard.
