I'm booking 2014 festivals for PA, NY, NJ, MD, DE and VA areas. Want to see cigar box guitars at your local music/art festival? Email me the fest link at email@example.com and I'll apply. Any and all fests considered!
Here's the info I'm sending out. Feel free to copy/send to your local fests as well:
I would like to submit Shane Speal's Snake Oil Jug Band for consideration in the 2014 ___________ Festival. The act is quite unusual and would add a fun "deep blues" element to your fest.
Based out of York PA, Shane Speal's Snake Oil Band performs folk, blues and more on homemade cigar box guitars, washtub basses, washboards and harmonicas. Watch the quick 2 minute promo video to see and hear it all: http://youtu.be/lLgaDnJAKO8
We offer a twist to the usual roots music concert scene. The show is raucous and high energy and features many original songs, yet The Snake Oil Band still honors the past masters with covers by Blind Willie Johnson, Son House and others.
In addition to performing, Shane Speal can also be available for cigar box guitar history seminars during the fest. (Great for kids!)
