Once upon a time, a long time ago, in the student bar of Leeds Polytechnic, “Snake Davis and his Alligator Shoes” were born. A soulful unit playing sax versions of Stax, Motown and Atlantic classics. They went on to be embraced by the Northern Soul scene. They lit up the Astoria Ballroom and Central Station, Leeds as they played to some of the most passionate and committed music-loving crowds anywhere in the world. Reformed a few years ago, Snake Davis and The Suspicions have been heralded as the best Soul band performing live in the UK today. They feature Snakes’ searing Junior Walker-inspired sax, the sumptuous vocals of Doreen Edwards and Sue Quinn, trumpet and a killer rhythm section. They perform classic tracks from Atlanta, Motown and Northern Soul, including their own versions of tunes such as The Champion, Sweetest Feeling, Green Onions, Love is Serious Business and Do I Love You.
