The Snaz is a young, original rock band featuring Dharma Ramirez (16, lead vocals and guitar), Mavis Eaton (16, keyboards and backup vocals), Zack James (14, drums) and Nina Singleton-Spencer (15, bass). They have won “Battle of the Bands” competitions in Brattleboro and Northampton. Their prize for the Brattleboro event was recording time at the 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 #2 song on Northampton’s WRSI 93.9 “Top 93 songs of 2013” and is still played regularly on 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 the NPR Studio 360 Battle of the High School Bands.
