Hailing from both side of the Georgia/Tennessee state line, the Sneary Family Band brings a close-knit, southern charm to a range of covers spanning several genres, from classic rock to bluegrass and soul to modern hits. While only recently forming a formal band, members Lauren, Emerson, Jim and Kevin have been playing together at family gatherings on whatever instruments were at hand for as long as they can remember – which for brothers Jim and Kevin, means more than fifty years! Switching between guitar and percussion, Jim’s kids, Lauren and Emerson, carry the vocals of the group, with harmonies intensified by their similar tone of voice – a sibling speciality! Jim alternates between keyboard and percussion, while Kevin, the veteran performer of the group, keeps everyone together on electric bass. The entire family has music in their bones, and it gives the band a sense of unity and purpose that really makes you feel something and keeps you coming back.
