Lafayette Studio Big Band lead by Steve Snyder

Live at Armando’s, June 29, 2017. I play with the Lafayette Studio Big Band every Thursday night and I’m the solo tenor sax chair, featured tenor and flute soloist and get to take lots of solos. On the tune When You’re Smiling I take a solo that I’m very pleased with.

Lafayette Studio Big Band — at Kunde Mountain Top Winery

Count Basie wrote this tune dedicating it to his puppy dog Splanky.

A nice July day back in 2014 on the top of a mountain at Kunde Family Winery playing big band jazz for a wonderful wedding. 80 degrees, under a huge Oak Tree, 17 of my favorite musical friends doing what we love to do, play big band jazz classics. Allison Gomer on trombone and Steve Deutsch on flute. What a blast we had that day! Lafayette Studio Big Band. Hire us for your event! You’ll be glad you did! — Steve Snyder
