“The songs on our debut album reflect the kind of music that the members of the band want to play, which is melodic rock with a blues influence”, adds Neil Murray. “Each of us has played many different styles of music, and our influences are varied, but Snakecharmer originally came together to play mainly early Whitesnake songs, so that is our starting point. There wasn't a deliberate plan to write songs in a particular style; each song on the album started as a basic idea by one or two band members, and if the other guys were enthusiastic about the idea, then the song would be worked up into a finished song”.

Marco Mendoza stepping out from Thin Lizzy for solo shows
Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Ted Nugent, Soul SirkUS, Thin Lizzy), has been out on the road with the current line up of Thin Lizzy for some time now, but that is coming to the end pretty soon, so Marco is about to step back out on the road with his solo work.
His last solo album 'Casa Mendoza' may not be the hard rock you'd maybe expect from someone who has been associated with such hard rocking acts as you know him well for, but there's some great material on there.
Classy guitaring from Rafael Moreira (Magnetico, The Voice), the keyboards skills of Steve Weingart (Steve Lukather) and stunning drum work of Joey Heredia, all alongside some great playing by Marco and lead vocals too.
For more details go to:
OK now stop it people, no I don't typically watch TV's The Voice, but Rhonda does when she can. That said there are some good talents left on there currently and one particular shining star plays in house band.
Rafael 'Rafa' Moreira!!!
What you may or most likely do not know, is that 'Rafa' has played alongside some of the best and no, I don't mean the singers on The Voice!!!
Besides his own project work including his 'Acid Guitar' solo album and rock project Magnetico, this fine player has recorded and performed with:
Paul Stanley (Kiss), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Ted Nugent, Thin Lizzy), Sheryl Crow, Don Felder (The Eagles), P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder and so many, many more!
