With their chilly white faces and hair, originally attacked the heavy rock scene from the icy heartlands of Pennsylvania. The core of the group, singer DALE LEE, guitarist KEVIN DEVER and the drummer only known as ANIMAL, formed a band in Erie, Pennsylvania called SPEEDQUEEN. With this band, they toured the East Coast and Canada. After a considerable number of performances, the band members decided they wanted to be more visual and theatrical so as to give full value to their audience. Hence, the SNOW MEN were born, with a full blown stage production including state of the arts special effects and the Snowmen's outlandish makeup and costuming.
The Snowmen came out for their first official gig on Christmas 1977 at the Roadhouse in Jamestown, New York. After making their presence felt on the East Coast, the Snowmen moved to sunny California. That's not to say that they've forsaken their original fans, in fact the Snowmen have toured and continue to tour extensively. They have played clubs and concert halls in New York, California, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Canada. They are currently preparing to embark on a nationwide tour to promote not only themselves, but a good cause as well. The Snowmen are turning all the profits over to the YMCA in each local area they play.
The Snowmen have also been active in the recording studio. The Snowmen's self-titled debut LP on ICE RECORDS is being followed-up by the single "TAKE A BETTER LOOK AT YOURSELF" b/w "ONE DAY AT A TIME". Both tracks will also be featured on the group's follow up LP, as yet untitled. Whether it's recording their stage shows or TV appearances, such as the NBC NEWS segment "SO YOU WANT TO BE A ROCK'N ROLL STAR" which featured them, the group always strives to entertain to the fullest and to bring maximum enjoyment to their audience.
