WATER FOR DOGS…

is a three-piece band based in Belper, Derbyshire, creating original music to make people dance with a smile.  They are all about great sound, great lighting, and great atmosphere.

Water for Dogs is Richard Snell on synths & samples, Matt Aitken on guitar, and Chris Sharman on bass.  They are a uniquely unclassifiable sound that has resulted in a passionate following of fans aged 6 to 60-something, the sell-out of a limited pressing of their first record, “sounds like something”, and numerous repeat bookings at live music venues and festivals, where it is not uncommon to hear comments like, “best band of the festival!!”, or “now I have to go away and rethink everything I thought I knew about music!” 
Water for Dogs is high-energy, eclectic, exciting, and probably like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

MATT AITKEN

GUITAR

The bare foot guitarist (although sometimes he does play in socks I’ve heard). Inventive, manic, crunchy, star-bursting guitar like you’ve (probably) never heard before!

CHRIS SHARMAN

BASS

It’s Mr. Bass himself. Soon to create one of the toughest challenges ever to be staged – to stand in a room and not move whilst he plays bass. Ha! No chance! Dance, funk, electric bass lines to die for!

RICHARD SNELL

SYHTNS & SAMPLES

It’s said he sucks in power via his numerous synths! Known for his crazy playing style and thin-ness – he secretly plans to dominate the synth world (but don’t mention the wedge of wonder)
