The Snaz concludes Twlight Music series

PUTNEY — Twilight Music concludes its 12th annual Twilight on the Tavern Lawn series of folk, world beat, rock, jazz, zydeco, Celtic, swing, blues, and bluegrass summer concerts on Sunday, Aug. 24.

That night, from 6 on, catch The Snaz, an original, indie rock band featuring four Vermont teenagers: Dharma Ramirez, 16, lead vocals and guitar; Mavis Eaton, 16, keyboards and backup vocals; Zack James, 14, drums; and Nina Singleton-Spencer, 15, bass.

Ask around. They've got fans. They've won battle of the bands competitions in Brattleboro and Northampton, Mass.

The band's prize for the Brattleboro event was recording time at Guilford Sound studios, where they recorded an EP with the help of Grammy-nominated record producer Peter Solley.

That record produced the hit tune “Anna,” which was the No. 2 song on Northampton's WRSI-FM 93.9 “Top 93 songs of 2013” and is still in rotation at 93.9 The River.

The band was featured on VPR's Vermont Edition radio program and the VPR 2013 Annual Music Show, and gained national attention as finalists in NPR's Studio 360 Battle of the High School Bands.

The seventh and final concert of the 2014 series takes place in downtown Putney on the Putney Tavern lawn (bring a lawn chair or blanket). In the event of rain the venue moves to Next Stage at 15 Kimball Hill.

The series is sponsored by the Town of Putney, Soundview Paper Company, Next Stage Arts Project, The Stockwell Brothers and many other Putney businesses and organizations.
