The Snake Oil Salesmen

The Snake Oil Salesmen began creating their unique blend of alt-folk-rock back in 2011. They took small town sensibilities, infused them with loss and pain, shook the mixture over tears both joyous and desperate, boiled it furiously in an extract of love and lust, and then bottled it all. The result is a passionate, delicious blend of rockin, groovin, story-tellin', and musicking that bites like a prairie rattler, goes down like a fine wine and tosses your inhibitions to the wind.
