The Rubber Snake Charmers began simply as an exercise in live rock improvisation and sonic experimentation curated by desert rock pioneer Mario Lalli, featuring likeminded musicians from all walks of the musical spectrum. Some of the past Snake Charmers include, DINO LALLI, BRANT BJORK, GARY ARCE, TONY TORNAY, SEAN WHEELER, JOE BAIZA, VINCE MEGHROUNI, BILL STINSON, RYAN GUT, NICK OLIVERI.
The idea to perform live and play totally improvised excursions anchored by Lalli’s heavy grooving and morphing bass lines. This is not a “jam band” taking solos over rock progressions…not at all, but more of a heavy meditation on rhythms, drones, grooves and riffs. Sonically becoming a canvas where each participant is encouraged to create fine lines or splatter and explode into chaos…wherever it goes it goes. Adding to the vision is the dark beautiful words and otherworldly vocal energies of the deserts own SEAN WHEELER.
MARIO LALLI and the RUBBER SNAKE CHARMERS takes us on a shamans journey through the sunbaked brains of these desert artists ……a pure form of rock expression……..DIG IT.
