Black Snake

From: Vancouver, B.C, Canada

Black Snake were a short-lived band from Vancouver. Members included George Chapelas (bass), Joe Conroy (guitar, vocals), Ron Flatman (drums, guitar), and Pat McDonald (guitar, vocals). The band contributed two songs circa 1969 to the rare Cool-Aid Benefit album. The first is their take on the traditional song “Catfish,” arranged by Conroy. The other was the excellent “The Reason,” a bizarre psych number with a nice groove. Conroy was also in the band Painted Ship.
