Laughing, Dancing and even some tears of joy: these are some emotions you can expect at a Snacks at Midnight show. Don't be surprised when you hear a deep, "I love you man" come from an anonymous fan in the middle of the crowd.
The team of 5 dashing, young men with a penchant for doing the unexpected look to make a memorable experience when they perform. Whether it's banter on stage between long-time friends, a shirt or two coming off, a beautiful movement inspired by Debussy on keys while the lead singer fixes a broken string, or an occasional smashing of a cheap, broken guitar one of the guys found at Goodwill, the band's live show is certainly an experience that goes nicely with their groovy, indie-rock, pop, funky sound.
Snacks at Midnight's debut album, Mom's Proud, is a ten song collection that checks a lot of boxes when it comes to different sounds. with styles ranging from funk, folk, rock, pop and even solo classical piano, each track stands on it's own, while maintaining cohesion
For their second release, one year after Mom's Proud, the group crafted Better Than Ever. It is a funky, indie rock song that speaks to many: dealing with losing a good friend. How do we handle it? Write a song.
Better Than Ever
The bands 3rd single released one month after Better Than Ever encompasses a completely different vibe with a folky, earthy feeling. This son asks the question, how much do material positions actually offer fulfillment in life. With the high and low points throughout the song, it leaves you with goosebumps.

Attention, by Snacks at Midnight
First track of our debut album, Mom's Proud
A midnight SNACK could be thought of in two categories: one as a pre-packaged quick bite and the second as an improvised meal using ingredients that don't traditionally go together, but boy does it taste and feel good. The latter is where Spokane, Washington-based indie rock, pop, funk band, Snacks at Midnight takes it's inspiration for their sound. With comparisons drawn to Hippo Campus, Backseat Lovers, Half Alive, and even the classics, Red Hot Chili Peppers or Grateful Dead, it is clear the band gets it's individuality from many different genres and artists.
The bands origin is a classic one. High school friends, Rory Babin, Giovani Covarrubias and Nickolaus Harner started jamming together. Once the trio figured out how to play their instruments they started writing music. The first song written was in the 10th grade, Asking All the Questions, the 3rd track off their debut album, Mom's Proud, released in November, 2021.
In 2018, the group added Rory's younger brother, Bill Babin on keys and after sifting through 8 different drummers, Austin Davis joined the group in March of 2022 adding that final touch, to create the band we all know and love today, Snacks at Midnight we all know and love today.
