About The Group


     The Craig Snyder Group is a collective force of musicians with a mutual love of the art and emotive soul of music. A performance of the CSG is not a "chops showcase" where the audience is alienated from the music being played but rather drawn toward and fully immersed into the total experience. Craig S Snyder is a well-known guitarist, teacher, composer, and clinician in the Rochester, New York region. Craig has secured endorsements with Peavey Electronics, Kahler vibrato systems, Curt Mangan Strings, Spectraflex Cables, and Xotic pedals.
Several of the Rochester region's finest drummers are called upon to provide the rhythmic spark for this group. Among these fine players are Mike Plouffe, Frank Quagliata, and John Maguire. The bass chair is occupied most frequently by seven string bassist Ron C Broida or Peter Chwazik with his nine string custom bass/guitar instrument.
It is the sincerest intent to draw the listener's attention to fully enjoy a performance of collective talents with a combination of carefully selected cover tunes and finely-crafted original compositions.
