Classic Artist of the Month

Snuff

Snuff was formed in the 1970's and released a pair of major label records in the early 1980's.These albums featured a country sound infused with elements of rock.  In 1983 their single, "Bad, Bad Billy" landed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  Another track, "(So This Is) Happy Hour" also hit the charts.  "United and Divided" was featured in the film "Tomboy."  The "classic" line-up in their heyday was Jimbo Bowling, Chuck Larson, Robbie House, Cecil Hooker, Scott Trabue and Michael Johnson.  Norman Harrell has played with the band for several decades.

Occasionally, several of the members of Snuff get together to perform at festivals or special events like during the recently held Veer Magazine music awards - where they were honored with their Lifetime Achievement Award.  Currently, several of the band members continue to play with their own bands in Virginia, North Carolina and New York. Be sure to catch our "unplugged" session at Waves of Sound Studio with several band members along with an interview and more!  Be  sure to tune-in to the CAT© ,  April 11 - 17 to hear this outstanding group - and we'll spin some classic tracks, too!  All right here on Classic Artists Today©
