Unveiled, unleashed: Tim Snider & Wolfgang Timber

Tim Snider & Wolfgang Timber debut Saturday at Crystal Bay Casino.

Tim Snider, a Reno native known for performing in his bare feet and drawing his violin bow into curly frays, unveils his new band Saturday at the Crystal Bay Casino.

A “world-folk hybrid,” Tim Snider & Wolfgang Timber is a six-piece group comprised of players from the Biggest Little City.

“It’s a whole new band and a whole new crew,” said Snider, who moved from Portland back to his former hometown three years ago. He assembled Wolfgang Timber during the quarantine.

Snider toured pretty much full time with Nahko and Medicine for the People for five years. His playing showcases swirling electric violin loops, shredding solos and musical influences from around the world.

The rhythm section – bassist Zach Terán and drummer Miguel Jiménez-Cruz – also play with Portland’s Latin folk band Y La Bamba and Reno contemporary pop group The Novelists. Kings Beach’s homegrown Todd Holway plays keyboards and University of Nevada music grads Lucas Arizu and Chance Utter play guitar and percussion, respectively.

The Crown Room show will feature Snider’s original songs from his past three studio albums as well as new songs he has written in the past year. This will be the band’s first live performance. The only other appearance slated this summer by the band is the June 5-6 Pyro Arts and Music Festival in Garrettsville, Ohio. On June 1, Snider starts a tour opening solo for reggae artist Mike Love.

Snider has traveled the world, playing venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and the Greek Theater in Berkeley, as well as major festival stages including the High Sierra, Bonnaroo and Glastonbury festivals.

He had planned for an amazing 2020 of performances. Between Nahko and conscious island roots artist Trevor Hall, he was slated for a European, South American two United States tours.

Snider had moved back to Reno be close to family when his daughter was born. He said the sudden change was at first a bit of a shock. But soon, Snider began writing new songs while he was holed up in Reno. The next thing he knew, the band “kind of just came together effortlessly. We are all passionate about making music and there aren’t any strong personalities like I’ve definitely experienced playing in other bands in the past. It feels like music did again at the beginning.”

The concert will be seated in pods of two and six and masks will be required. Saturday’s show begins at 8 p.m. Call or go online to Crystal Bay Casino’s box office for tickets.
