Title: 1000 Lost Days: The Unauthorized Account of SNMNMNM on Tour.

Subject(s): DIY Touring, Fire Trucks, Vans Warped Tour ‘99, MC Chris

Brief Description: Traces the unexpected path of SNMNMNM on the road from 1999 to the present. From the early, unsuccessful attempts to book their own tour (which forced them to lie their way onto a nationally touring festival), to getting asked by a Cartoon Network cult-star to open for his rap tour.

Excerpt 1: “As the guys pulled up to the Whitewater Tavern in Little Rock, Arkansas, no would could have imagined the inner band turmoil that would erupt after several pitchers of Miller High Life and a lost pedal board.”

Excerpt 2: “As 1971 fire rescue vehicles go, this had everything. Plenty of cabinet space for all the instruments, personal locker space for the band and crew, sleeping space for six, and one bum radiator that was about to make the trip to Boston as arduous as a Steinbeck novel.

Title: Going Back To School: The Creative Origins of SNMNMNM at a World-Renown Music Conservatory in Rochester, NY

Subject: Eastman School of Music, Coffee Houses, Basement Practice Rooms.

Brief Description: How learning everything there is about the history of music can inspire a band to spend next ten years trying to create the perfect pop song.

Excerpt: “It was 1997. Tuba player Mark and songwriter Seamus were frustrated with their previously unsuccessful attempts to start a band at music school. Everyone was so busy doing their own thing it seemed impossible. But, with the addition of Matt Vooris on drums (a freshman with a lot of free time) and guitarist Matt (a community college business major), SNMNMNM was complete. From that point on, nothing seemed impossible.”

Title: For All You Know: How SNMNMNM May Be One of the Best Bands of the New Millennia

Subject(s): Well Crafted Pop Songs, Energetic Live Shows, Smart Arrangements

Brief Description: How does a band with a tuba and such a ridiculous name make it this far? Never being the “buzz” band of the moment SNMNMNM has built a cult following one fan at time converting even the most die-hard skeptics into dedicated fans.

Excerpt 1: “The misconceptions about SNMNMNM are few, such as the notion that Mark’s amplified tuba is the band’s ‘gimmick.’ Yes, it’s hard to miss a big shiny brass object when it’s put in front of you but it would have lost it’s appeal a long time ago if it didn‘t work musically.

Excerpt 2: “ SNMNMNM is indeed nerdy, but not to the extent where members of the band all dress like characters from Revenge of The Nerds and recite, word for word, lines from the Revenge of The Sith. SNMNMNM are music nerds above all else, the intelligence is in the chord changes, the arrangements, the lyrics, and the harmonies. It’s smart rock music.”
