Details

Snowboy and the Latin Section are Europe’s leading Afro-Cuban Jazz performers and recording artists, led by multi-percussionist Mark ‘Snowboy’ Cotgrove.

So much Latin music these days has got so watered down or slow. There’s too much pandering to these Salsa dance classes. But my band is here to keep stoking the fire and ensure we make it exciting through our live performances and records the way Latin music is meant to be. We deliver the Mambo-influenced messages that Tito Puente did and Eddie Palmieri does.

As a percussionist in many styles, I have performed or recorded with Lisa Stansfield, Imelda May, Amy Winehouse, Rod Temperton, Mark Ronson, Basia, Simply Red, Makoto Kuriya, Gibonni, Flaco Jimenez, Airto Moreira, Deodato, Mick Hucknall, Herman Olivera, Jon Lucien, Rustin Man, David Sylvian, James Taylor Quartet, Mica Paris, Incognito, Patti Austin, Big Boy Bloater, Mother Earth, Corduroy, Jim Kerr and many many more.

“Snowboy is so entwined within the British Black Music industry it would take micro-surgery to remove him” Mark Webster, Blues & Soul Magazine.

“Jen Kearney is a gifted singer who can belt out a song with the best of them. She puts a refreshing new spin on funk music, showing flashes of funk’s horn-drenched heyday in the ’70s, but also modernizing it with thoughtfully conceived lyrics that surround the fun with a lot of stately maturity. Her new album further includes top-notch balladry and a touch of Latin excitement. And the climactic song ‘Sanctuary in Sabotage’ is simply mesmerizing.” –Steve Morse (Billboard, Rolling Stone)
