Once upon a time, a long time ago, in the student bar of Leeds Polytechnic, "Snake Davis and his Alligator Shoes" were born. A soulful unit playing sax versions of Stax, Motown and Atlantic classics. They went on to be embraced by the Northern Soul scene. They lit up the Astoria Ballroom and Central Station, Leeds as they played to some of the most passionate and committed music-loving crowds anywhere in the world.

The passing years scattered the individual Band members to various parts of the world but the nucleus of Snake Davis, Bass man "Dangerous" Dave Bowie and Guitarist Mark Cresswell came together every year or so to back visiting American soul stars. The three decided to re form the SUSPICIONS and take to the road doing their OWN show again for the first time after 13 years apart.

The band have gone from strength to strength and are considered to be one of the Norths’ best kept secrets, Snake Davis and The Suspicions have been heralded as the best Soul band performing live in the UK today. They feature Snakes’ searing Junior Walker-inspired sax, the sumptuous vocals of Doreen Edwards and Sue Quinn, trumpet and a killer rhythm section.

As a backing band they’ve worked alongside Ben-E-King, Frank Wilson, Chuck Jackson, Brenda Holloway, Martha Reeves, Willie Hutch, JJ Barnes, Eddie Holman, Barbara Lynn, The Vibrations and many more.

The band recorded “Get Ready” with the boy band Blue and on DVD collection, “The Strange World of Northern Soul” – described as “An awesome Northern Compilation”. They have also recorded soundtracks for tv advertising campaigns.

The band comprises; Saxes, Trumpet, Keyboards, Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals. The line up includes current and former members of the Eurythmics, M-People, Tanita Tikaram, Simply Red and Swing Out Sister.
