the Private Snafu / Bio

The Private Snafu is a local band in Decatur looking to play shows and have fun. We play a blend of of styles from alternative country, to bluegrass, to rock and roll, to folk rock. We play a blend of originals and covers and really enjoy doing it. We like to think we have a unique sound while blending several different styles of music. The Private Snafu consists of five members: Mason, Whitt, Mitch, Randy and Kyle. Give us a ring if you would like to contact us for shows of any sort. We are interested in playing bars, clubs, festivals, and any other type of shows.
Our original music takes inspiration from many different kinds of situations and scenarios. We write songs that we feel tell the story of the human condition, but only from perspectives that we can truly understand. The Private Snafu has songs covering topics like: murder, love, love lost, drinking, substance abuse, cancer, suicide, war, sex, and other things that define us as a species. Its our belief that the stories and the characters in them are what makes music universal. If you can't listen to the stories were telling and feel like you relate to them or know people who have been in those situations then we haven't done our job as story tellers.
