This event is all ages
If the classic soul, smooth reggae, upbeat ska and distinctive storytelling found all over Westbound Train’s album, Come and Get It, has you stepping into your neighborhood record shop in search of Otis Redding, the Wailers, or The Specials, nobody would be more stoked than the members of Boston's best modern reggae/soul outfit.
…Westbound Train wants to be your gateway drug.
The Snails are an eclectic act whose work, though identifiable with definite genres, defies generalization. Having spent previous years exploring and writing in the style of mid-century Jamaican music (ska, rocksteady, reggae) the group now brings influences as various and distant from each other as American garage rock and rhythm ‘n’ blues to the forefront of their original sound. Their songs are lyrically poignant (“poetry dressed with tune”), their rhythms aggressive, and their performance electrifying. Catch the beat, and you’ll never be able to put it down.
The Snails are fronted by Todd Fausnacht on guitar and lead vocals, with Ben Parry on bass, Tim Hildebrand on guitar, Josh Parry on drums, and Matt MacLeod on organ.
