The Three Snyders Band

The Snyders Instruments

Born and raised in South Bend, Indiana, Southside Denny is a legendary bluesrocker and acoustic fingerstyle player with ten albums to his credit. He is also the father/bandleader of The Snyders. He began growing his reputation in the early 1980’s being often associated with and seen on stage with numerous Chicago musical heros and influences such as Luther Allison, Sugar Blue, Pinetop Perkins to name a few. Denny performed as opening act for these and many other stellar acts such as Ray Charles, Lonnie Mack, Albert Collins and what resembles a who’s who list of Chicago blues acts. In 1984 he and his band (Southside Denny and the Skintones) scored a regional hit with a protest song called ‘Ethanol Stinks’. Before disbanding in 1989 the trio recorded two albums (including one with Sugar Blue on harp) and played blues club circuits thoughout several Midwestern states and into the Canadian provinces of Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
