ABOUT Trampled Under Foot (TUF) www.tufkc.com "Their family band tightness and the power of their recordings and performances have already made them one of the most popular and visible bands on today’s Blues scene". ~Bob Margolin
Siblings Danielle Danielle, Kris and Nick Schnebelen grew up with the Blues. Their parents, Bob and Lisa, were active in the thriving Kansas City Blues scene, playing in local bands and competing in the Kansas City Blues Challenge. Bob and Lisa’s band didn’t make it to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis — but their kids did. When TUF arrived in Memphis for the 2008 IBC they were followed by huge, wildly enthusiastic throngs of hometown supporters, eager to cheer for their favorite musical family. And when TUF took First Place in the competition and Nick won the Albert King award for best guitarist, it was a sweet victory for the Schnebelen family and for Kansas City itself. TUF has been on a roll ever since, becoming popular repeat headliners at clubs, festivals and cruises around the world and releasing CDs and a DVD on their own label.
2012 Blues Music Award nominee for best bassist Danielle Schnebelen rocks the music world in more than one way. From her sultry and soulful vocals to her constant rocking bass lines that drive the song on home.
Kris has been playing music since he can remember, and it shows. Kris’ phenomenal drum solos show his musical prowess and are enough to wow any wayward fan of music. From rock and roll to blues to country, Kris throws it down.
Nick has been playing guitar all of his life. He is the product of three generations of guitarist and musicians. Nick has the ability to emote the feelings he feels inside through his guitar and is simply a sight to see.
In the future, when people speak of the great Blues dynasties, musical families who breathed the same musical air and produced the highest form of the art, chances are they’ll refer to the Allmans, the Dickinsons, the Burnsides, the Brookses, the Neals… and the Schnebelens.WINNER - 2009 Pitch Music Award "Best Blues Band"
