Snappy recently had the pleasure of hanging out on-stage and backstage with Houston’s own Ryan Scroggins & The Trenchtown Texans. The band’s namesake and frontman is a veritable renaissance man; artist, multi-instrumentalist, song writer, professional tattoo artist and former herpetologist for the Houston Zoo.  Mr. Scroggins originally made a name for himself in the music world as the organist for the well-known ska band Los Skarnales.

The Trenchtown Texans play a unique mix of Americana/Ska/Roots/Reggae/Swamp music and have released three albums and toured extensively, however these days the band only makes appearances sporadically.  As such, it was truly a pleasure for Snappy to be able to share the stage with them at Houston’s Continental Club:


After the show, Snappy was fortunate enough to spend a few minutes with Mr. Scroggins.  Having again been a former Herpetologist for the Houston Zoo, Ryan is very familiar with gators, however this would be his first encounter with a blue gator:


If you have a keen eye, you’ll be able to spot Snappy in the video below of the band performing “Too Tired to Fight”:

A quick YouTube search will return lots of videos of this great band, and if they happen to come to your town do make it a point to check them out live.

If you have an event in the Houston or Austin area that you would like for Snappy to attend, please get in touch with us by emailing ATTN: Blog.
