Neutral Snap
Neutral Snap
Neutral snap is an up-and-coming young 5-piece rock band out of the New Orleans, Louisiana. Comprised entirely of LSU students, the group incorporates sounds from the ‘70’s, 80’s, ‘90s, and early 2000s as well as now. Their sets range from classic bangers to catchy originals you won’t hear anywhere else.

Formed at Jesuit High School in New Orleans by guitarist Walker Legrand, fellow guitarist J.P. Brown, and drummer-turned-vocalist Josh Latham. The band first performed live at the 2011 St. Matthew’s Fair in River Ridge, LA. Throughout their time at Jesuit, they played a number of different fairs and similar events, including many school functions.

The band split off in several directions as they graduated and moved into college. They added fellow Jesuit Dominick Conforte, to bass as well as Legrand’s long- time friend and fellow New Orleans musician, George Neyrey, to drums. With Latham’s move to vocalist and front man, the combination clicked. They turned their sites from smaller, more family oriented venues to the college market, and have been making noise around the SEC since.

Neutral Snap worked fiendishly to build up a following in the Baton Rouge-New Orleans area, playing as a cover band in smaller bar venues. They eventually became regulars at the iconic Fred’s in Tigerland, which they credit as helping kick start their career. During their first show at Fred’s, LSU Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal was in the crowd before later joining them on stage.

Once they had built a strong following in their home region, Neutral Snap branched off to Starkville, Mississippi, where they started at fraternity parties before working their way into smaller venues. By packing smaller venues to capacity in Baton Rouge and Starkville, they managed to find themselves on the radar of more notable music venues, playing their first show at the Varsity Theatre in Baton Rouge in January of 2017.

The group says they play for the music, and have started the “Make Live Music Great Again” movement. They are known for the energy on stage, as well as always incorporating riveting solos into their sets. Neutral Snap plans to release their first EP during the summer of 2017, but have already released 3 songs rumored to be in it on their Facebook page.
