Red Snapper UK
Red Snapper is a British nu jazz trio founded in London in 1993 by Ali Friend (double bass), Richard Thair (drums), and David Ayers (guitar), joined by various guest musicians and vocalists on different records. The band are known for their pioneering synthesis of acoustic instruments, electronic textures and passionate performances where they embrace dark funk, hip-hop, dub, psychedelic surf, afro-jazz and fragile soundscapes.
Over the last two decades, the band have released a string of widely acclaimed albums, toured globally and supported the likes of Massive Attack, Bjork, The Prodigy, De La Soul and The Fugees. They also acquired a reputation for their expansive remixing – reworking tunes by Trouble Funk, Garbage, Lamb and Edwyn Collins amongst others.
In May 2022 the band released the new album Everybody Is Somebody, a glorious and heady take on the band’s pioneering alternative, trip hip and acid jazz-infused sound. The upcoming Narva show promises to be an impassioned, soulful and body-jerking affair.
