The Story of Andrew "Sly" Snyders
Andrew has a life-long interest in music, and began playing saxophone when he was ten. Two years later he started taking private lessons from Berklee College of Music graduate and world renowned saxophonist Dave Camp.
Saxophonist Andrew Snyders currently resides in Denver and plays throughout the metro Denver area and across Colorado. He has a love for all genres of music, but especially funk, jazz, and blues. Some of his major influences include Dave Camp, Eric Marienthal, Maceo Parker, Cannonball Adderly, Tower Of Power, Trombone Shorty, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and Michael Buble. While Andrew has performed with and contributed to numerous studio recordings with several local bands, he currently performs with five consistently.
Andrew is a versatile player who has had the pleasure of playing in a wide range of situations, starting with the school-run jazz and concert band. Andrew continues to improve his adaptability, playing with several local bands, entertaining at many major venues in metro Denver and the Front Range, and working with dancers and poets to complement their performances. It’s not unusual to find Andrew sitting in on one of the many blues and jazz jams in the Denver area, playing solo for street and stage performance, or performing at other events, including parades/festivals and private gatherings. He has been a stand-in with Heartbeat (5 Star Talent And Entertainment, Inc.) on multiple occasions and performs regularly with the big band sounds of Tuxedo Junction (Nobel Productions, Inc.).
