The Band Snafu
Phone: (515) 266-5572

The band SNAFU was originated in 2004 through the collaborative efforts of Andy Anderson and Tom Murphy. Andy, who plays guitar and piano, also brings lead vocals to Snafu while Tom's drum playing proves to be the backbone of the band. Snafu’s newest member, Brian Corley, has been active in the music industry for years, most recently in a Central Iowa based band.

Snafu has played to excited crowds at a number of venues including the Shooters Hideaway, House of Bricks, The Vaudeville Mews, Bali Satay and People's, as well as Iowa State University's "Battle of the Bands." 

Most recently, they have been asked to perform for Billy Joel and the VIP dinner preshow party on April 15, 2008. SNAFU has also donated their time to perform for various DARE programs around central Iowa. In September of 2006, the Des Moines Music Coalition positively reviewed Snafu's music in an article titled "Make No Mistake... It's SNAFU," which was published on their website. 

The band has also received airtime on the radio station KNXO and the Des Moines based web radio station DMPulse, where they were posted as a featured artist. Most recently Snafu was featured in an article in the Scene Scribe column of the Des Moines CityView.

The music of today's Snafu is upbeat, energetic, fun and in your face. It is this sound that the Des Moines Music Coalition labeled "a 'musical chameleon' that keeps the audience guessing what will happen next".

Andy Anderson is the primary songwriter in SNAFU. He writes and arranges new material and then presents each song to the band. From there the band members put their own musical stamp on it to get the complete SNAFU sound. 

They continue to play throughout Iowa and the Midwest, with their ultimate goal being to bring Snafu music to the masses and beyond.
