Bud Snyder is the co-owner of Sarasota’s Spirit Ranch Studio, and he has called the city home for over 40 years. Snyder has worked as the producer and sound engineer for acts including Warren Haynes, Jeff Buckley, Gov’t Mule, Derek Trucks and The Allman Brothers. So when he was diagnosed with an aneurysm that needed operation, it’s no wonder that Southwest Florida’s great blues acts like FJ Howson Band put on a benefit show May 27 to help him garner the funds. Cock and Bull was taken over by area blues fans that helped raise over $16,000 for the cause.
