We felt so happy back on the Plaza Del Valle stage for the 2016 Panorama Chamber Christmas Concert. Thank you Saúl Mejía for presenting us awards from the City Of Los Angeles and the California State Senate. It’s an honor and we are proud of it. Photos by Jose Valle. We shot some VR footage which might show up in an upcoming post.
We shared our talents at a lovely Healing Arts Fest with Siberian Healers in Hollywood, CA at Plummer Park. It was a great gathering of positive minded souls. Besides UFOs and environmental issues, our other main topic of lyrics is conscious music which is positive minded with an intention to be our best selves.

We had so much fun playing at Artistpalooza Music And Filmmaker Mixer on April 3rd at Trip in Santa Monica. Plenty of talented people were there. And we shared the bill with Robot Nature and David Lockhart’s band, Johnny Lightning And The Flaming Peyote, Tehrah and special guests who sat in.
We were thrilled to have Kerry Crutchfield play drums for us along with Trevor Coppola on cello. Here is a video of our complete 5 song set.
We had a fantastic time playing and socializing at David Lockhart’s event, SUSHI SUNDAY Artist and Filmmaker Social, at Trip in Santa Monica Jan 3, 2016. “Contact” is one of our UFO songs. Special thank you to our amazing guest musicians, Kerry Crutchfield on drums and Trevor Coppola on cello.
It was wonderful to see so many friends and make new ones. We’re very grateful for the privilege of playing music.
Snowflakes members are proud to lend our talents as part of the house band for Highway To Hollywood, a pilot for a TV talk show. Martin is the MD (musical director). It was great fun to shoot the show. It’s all done in a giant green screen studio at LA Castle Studios. Martin wrote the song. Natasha is on bass. Kerry Crutchfield is on drums. George G. Woo is on keyboards. This group is officially known as Martin Blasick And The Highway To Hollywood Band.
We played an unexpected set at Cork Lounge. It was a thrill to play with Natasha’s sister, Marina, in attendance. We’d just recorded a version of INXS’s “Beautiful Girl” with Marina on lead vocals. We found ourselves really enjoying the music and getting back up on stage.
The very first Snowflakes song available on iTunes has just gone live. It’s a cover of INXS’ Beautiful Girl featuring Marina Babenko on vocals. While we work on our album, we were blessed with a visit from Marina, Natasha’s sister. Marina was practicing the guitar and mentioned Beautiful Girl was a song she’d like to learn. It was a magical evening. The track was done that night and the vocals were tracked the next day. We all had a wonderful experience, and wanted to share that joy. It was an unexpected collaboration that we are glad came to be.
