Saucy swing band to relaunch Yellow City Sounds Live concert series
Last Updated by
A swing band priding itself on its sassy blending of music and cultures will open Panhandle PBS’s in-studio concert series for 2019.
Snaps for Sinners, a nationally touring California trio, will perform at 7 p.m. June 27 in the Panhandle PBS studios, 2408 S. Jackson St.
The concert is a joint production of Panhandle PBS and Amarillo College's FM90. It’s the first concert in the studio since 2018 and will feature the unveiling of Panhandle PBS’s new set.
Admission is free with a suggested donation of $10 for priority seating. Space is limited, and tickets — which are required — are available here.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and those with priority seating will have their choice of seats in a reserved section. No late seating is permitted because the show is being streamed live on FM90 and on Panhandle PBS’s Facebook page.
The band describes itself as "hellbent on making people dance and have a good time, while also delivering a powerful progressive message that inspires empathy and altruism."
With influences ranging from traditional jazz to folk-punk to country, Snaps for Sinners is dedicated to creating an all-inclusive experience through the blending of multicultural arts.
“Snaps for Sinners is a fantastically eclectic and dynamic band,” said FM90 program director Amy Presley. “We can’t wait to see the performance that they have planned for our audience.”
The Yellow City Sounds Live concert series offers intimate performances by a range of musical performers.
Support for this concert was provided by the Gilliland Family Foundation, Gary and Stephanie Nielsen, Reed Beverage and Hampton Inn — Amarillo West.
