So instead of talking about ourselves, here are some comments from just a few of the folks who booked the Snarky Cats.  



The Snarky Cats provide Top of the Line Entertainment and Professional Interactions with the Public. The Snarky Cats provided professional talent & top of the line equipment delivering an amazing show! I started the Annual July 4th Family Fun Festival and Firework Show in 2013. The event starts in the midafternoon which is when the entertainment starts and continues for about 7+ hours until the Firework Show. The event is open to the public and attracts 30,000+ people. The Snarky Cats worked great with my staff, sponsors, vendors, and the overall community.  The Snarky Cats delivered working collaboratively and provided the best entertainment. I am looking forward to having them back!

- Councilmember Johnny Khamis, City of San Jose, District 10 


They had me at Santana!...The Snarky Cats play the perfect mix of songs for everyone’s taste! They have played for us at the Almaden Valley Summer Concert Series. The Almaden Valley Summer Concerts are a series of ‘music in the park’ events, with up to 1,000 community members in attendance each night. The Snarky Cats played music that everyone, including families, could enjoy. They’re also extremely professional and so easy to work with! We’re excited to have them back again this Summer 2020!”

-Anne Marie Naranjo, Program Specialist, Almaden Community Center


For the last six years, the Snarky Cats have been a lynch pin of the Pacific Grove Good Old Days festival held the second weekend of every April, and consistently bring their unique sound, dynamic presence and a great crowd to the main Bank of America Stage year after year. Their music gets people excited and keeps them dancing. Our event would not be the same without them!

-Peter Mounteer, Marketing and Events Manager, Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce & Tourist Centers 


The Snarky Cats played their tails off at several KFOX events this summer, and kept our audiences cool and entertained!  This band knows their music and their crowd, and wowed us with their talent, professionalism, and FUN! Thanks for the music, Snarky Cats, we love you guys!.

- Jackie Selby, On Air Host 98.5 KFOX


The Snarky Cats played for the Twain Harte Chamber of Commerce's Concerts in the Pines July 7th, 2018 and really rocked it out of the park. We had record attendance that day and the band nailed it. Everybody danced! We hope to have them back again soon. What a great day that was.   

- Jerry Maxwell, THCOC Band Committee 2018.


What a great sound from a group of wonderful, professional musicians. Snarky Cats have played at our winery twice during our Summer Concert Series and I have already booked them for next Summer.  The crowd loved their variations on the vintage rock sound and their renditions of the classics.

- Stuart Mast, Brice Station Vineyard, Murphys,CA


The Snarky Cats were a wonderful addition to our summer concert series at the Cameo Plaza in Arnold this past summer!  This was the our first year of  serving the community with free concerts, and the Snarky Cats helped to put us on the map - our Arnold crowd loved them.   We are so looking forward to our next concert season and hope that the Snarky Cats save a space on their calendar for us.

Any band with the name Cats in it had my attention so when they wanted to play at The Cats Restaurant and Bar I was intrigued. Well they did the name justice with their high energy, professionalism and interaction with the crowd. They new how to read the room and get the most out of the crowd. I would recommend them only if you are looking for a great time. 

-  Harlan McHugh,  The Cats, Los Gatos California

The Snarky Cats have played at our winery for our Summer Concert Series and I have already booked them for next Winter.  The crowd loved their music . I love their name...The Snarky Cats! But they were not Snarky at all, they were professional and fun and truly had a great time while providing a great show.

- Nancy Falcon, Bargetto Winery


The Snarky Cats were a great addition to our Summer Music Series at San Jose Municipal Golf Course.  Solid sound, professional musicians and combined with great song choices - the crowd loved it.  Our guests were treated to an exceptional night of music on the patio.  The Snarky Cats were great to work with and everyone is looking forward to having them back again next year.  

- Bob McGrath  - PGA Professional/General Manager, San Jose Municipal Golf Course 


The Snarky Cats are an excellent band. They played a great selection of songs and entertained the crowd. They are easy to work with and genuinely nice people. I would be happy to have them back again.

-  Nikki Rhodabarger - Director of Hospitality & General Manager Ridgemark Golf Club & Resort


The Snarky Cats helped us pull off an incredibly successful fundraiser. They were professional and easy to work with. They play all the great dance music that keeps a party hopping. Can’t wait to see them at future events!

- Bill Fullerton, Murphys Firefighters Association President


In 2013, the Snarky Cats joined Pacific Grove's 57th Annual Good Old Days Festival at our Goodies Stage. In 2014, they returned to the 58th Annual Good Old Days Celebration & Music Festival to our main Bank of America Stage. The Snarky Cats are a great band that kept the crowd dancing through their entire set. We hope to have them back at the Good Old Days in 2015 and beyond!

- Caroline Main, Marketing & Events Manager, Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce & Tourist Centers


The Snarky Cats were referred to me for KFOX events by a friend in the industry, it was natural for me to reach out and book them for other KFOX events. We’ve worked with the Snarky Cats on multiple occasions now and they are always professional, punctual and most of all a great show for KFOX listeners. From small to large events the Snarky Cats always seem to have the temperature of the room and consistently entertain the audience. KFOX will definitely work with the Snarky Cats again on future projects.

 –Tony Cafarelli, KFOX Director of Promotions


The Snarky Cats performed at the Campbell Relay for Life and did a fantastic job. Their musicianship is excellent, their song selection is unique, and they were very easy to work with. I truly appreciate the fact that the Snarky Cats do so much charity work for important causes like Relay for Life and others. We're planning to invite them back next year!

- Peter Filice, Community Concert Chair, Campbell Relay for Life


The Snarky Cats played for our Firefighters Chili Cook Off, to raise money for burn survivors. The crowd loved the music, and they helped to make our charity event a huge success. We look forward to having them playing all our future events! Thanks again to The Snarky Cats. 

- Jim Aparicio, VP San Jose Firefighters Burn Foundation


Snarky Cats had the crowd moving and singing along the whole gig. I love the variety they play and you'll love hearing their unique twist on some of the songs. I would jam with 'em anytime.

- Chris Jackson, On Air Host 98.5 KFOX


I caught the Snarky Cats in action during their sweet set at this year's Los Gatos Music in the Park. The band delivered a big sound featuring some crisp vocal harmonies, solid instrumentation and unique renditions of some well-known Rock classics (and some not so well known ones). Additionally, their all-round professionalism was appreciated by all. I look forward to watching them live in the SF Bay Area soon!

- Aki Kumar, Los Gatos Music In The Park


A couple of years ago we here at the Longstock Performance center got a call from the Snarky Cats about being in the line up for our event. Their first performance was fantastic and really set the pace for the show. We were most fortunate to have them return this year for another over the top set featuring talented arrangements of authentic rock and roll. We will be happy to put them on the bill anytime. Thanks George and band mates for sharing your wonderful music.

- Paul Mooney, Tom Levehagen, Kim Winn, producers of Longstock 


The Snarky Cats were a great group to work with. They are professional, on time, and great entertainers! The patio was packed, our customers had a great time, and everyone looks forward to having them back! The Snarky Cats have staying power!!   

- Anthony Buich, Proprietor of Bull and Bear,  Monterey CA.


The Snarky Cats are a great combo that sound great and have a broad song list that should fill the musical needs of any event you're contemplating. In fact, they are so good that I didn't really want to write this testimonial because then you'll probably hire them and I won't have them to myself.

- Jeff Stai, owner of Twisted Oak Winery


It is nothing but a pleasure to work with the Snarky Cats, easy going, self-sufficient and full of nothing but rockin’ good times for all who visit The Row! They keep the excitement and enjoyment for all those who visit, and we look forward to having them Rock The Row everytime!”

-  Katelyn House,  Santana Row


The Snarky Cats tame the wild beast that is the Henfling's Soundstage, getting the folks dancing and having a blast. I have my list of groups that always pull through on all counts of musicality and professionalism... The Snarky Cats are on that list!

-  Emmanuel Selassie, ESI Sound and Vision / Henfling's Tavern


The Snarky Cats have strong musicianship and a vocalist with a deep, rich voice. They rocked the street at our event in July.  Would love to hear/see them again. 

- Clifford White,  South Bay Live Music         


The Snarky Cats are an event director's dream come true! They showed up early, were wonderful to work with, flexible, and the crowd loved them! I have already recommended them to a friend for her event and am looking forward to booking them again for one of mine! 

- Julie Stewart,  Director of the Coastal 5K Family Fun Run & Festival


We would like to thank The Snarky Cats for donating their time and talent to the Rimz & Ribz Car Show in Livermore. It was awesome to walk around the parking lot and see people singing along with the band as they belted out some of the great classics. I found myself singing along on a few occasions like I was cruising down the road listening to the radio!  The Snarky Cats helped to set just the right vibe and make the event that much more enjoyable for the crowd. We had many compliments from attendees and event staff for the fine music layed down by the band. Nothing better than great live music and the Snarky Cats brought it on, once again! 

- Rimz & Ribz Car Show Production Management 


The Snarky Cats played a TOSPS Tuesday concert for us and delivered a show that was full of energy and great music.  We had a great time working with them.

-  Nick Nichols, Executive Director, Tabard Theatre


The Snarky Cats were a great hit here at the Los Gatos Food Fest. The Snarky Cats played a wide range of great tunes that had people dancing and enjoying. Thank you!

- Los Gatos Food Festival


I would highly recommend The Snarky Cats for festivals, holiday parties, or special events. Working with the American Cancer Society doing sound, I had the privilege of working with this talented group of professional musicians.  

- Otis Coen,  Hear The Call Music


The Snarky Cats came to MYTH Taverna and Lounge in Downtown San Jose with excitement in their eyes and fervor in their voice.  The crowd loved them, began swaying to the beat and singing along through their eclectic assortment of classic tunes.  We had a large corporate gathering in the house that day and The Snarky Cats set the perfect vibe for their social cocktail hour.  Everyone loved it and we received many compliments and questions regarding when they were going to return.  I personally loved their musical selection, particularly their fantastic rendition of Jefferson Airplanes "white rabbit"  I look forward to having The Snarky Cats at my establishment again and would recommend them to any venue that wants to get the vibe moving and the blood pumping

- David Ramsay,  Executive Chef at Myth Taverna And Lounge 


We loved having the Snarky Cats at our restaurant in San Francisco for Sunday Streets. The energy and passion they put into their music gets the crowd going and makes for a great show. We particularly liked the wide range of music they knew and performed, it spoke to everyone, young and old!

- Kristin Houk,  NamasteDirect President and CEO


The Snarky Cats played our June event in the Bayview this year, and by all accounts rocked the socks off the crowd! SundayStreets is a community event that opens up the streets to pedestrians and bicycles, and it is always a better time when bands like the Snarky Cats are able to perform. The crowd loved them and we hope to bring them back to other neighborhoods in the future!

- Beth Byrne, Sunday Streets Program Director


The Downtown Campbell Business Association was pleased to have the Snarky Cats play for one of our First Friday events.  They offered our patrons a rocking good time!  We hope to have them back next year!
