The Hip Snacks are fronted by the duo of lead vocalist Kara Durante and her fiancé, bassist Ben Suarez. Though recently formed in spring, 2023, the band has significant touring experience (listed below). Ben/Kara had considerable experience back east in Bencoolen & Miss Monster, touring and playing festivals supporting acts like Badfish, Marcus King, Maggie Rose, Big Something, etc. The duo moved to Denver in July 2022, to form this band.
THS is filled out by the very in-demand Dylan French on drums(Wood Belly), two incredible guitarists Felipe Cantuara (Night Pony) and Ricky Ferias (Conscious Pilot), who switch between versatile rhythm and shredding leads, and are held down by the soulful and deft keys of Adam Schini (Adventure Dog). The Hip Snacks bring powerhouse vocals, tight grooves, precision solos and a formidable energy to every stage they take.
