"style is blues-based pop w/ rock edges that sometimes echoes the work of Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, & perhaps Melissa Etheridge. Meanwhile, the smoky, late-night "Chaotic Sanctity" suggests it's a song that Norah Jones could take a crack at. Estrada's own voice is an appealing instrument."

Along Came A Snider

An entertainer's name is vital when it comes to marketing, public relations and finding work. Amber Estrada? It worked well for the Vallejo guitarist, song writer and vocalist.

Amber Snider? Well, she's had it since her May 2 marriage to Aaron Snider. It's been an adjustment, but so far, so good, the singer said.

"After years of using my maiden name, it is a little like being in the witness protection program," she said. "But I like sharing a name with the man I love. I am just glad the man I love didn't have the last name 'Bamber.'"

Yes, "Amber Bamber" might have been hard to handle. At the end of the day -- rather, the concert -- it's about the music. And Snider brings her acoustic guitar to the Benicia Historical Museum on July 16 in the third and final "Mirth & Music at the Museum;" Comic Rocky LaPorte headlines the 8 p.m. show.

For Snider, a former employee at the Vallejo Convention and Visitors Bureau, it's a chance to work some of her tried-and-true tunes and some new ones. She's figured she's written 150 songs -- basically enough for about 10 new CDs.

"But not all are good enough to record or play at shows," she said. "I also have many snippets that are needing to be completed."

The challenge is her band's undertaking "the large task of recording my catalogue with me," said Snider, who performs solo in Benicia. "It is difficult but it's worth it. Songs that we have been playing live for years, but have no real recording that we are proud of to give to people."

Snider said her songs "are like my children and I am trying not to bring any more of them into this world until I can properly feed and clothe the first ones. But, sometimes, they just create themselves. Those are most always the best ones."

It helps when one of her band mates happens to be her new husband.

"We've been making music together for six years," Snider said.

The band's bass player, Dave Youdell, is Aaron Snider's best friend since childhood and was best man at the wedding. Ram Hatley is the drummer.

"Just like a family, there's a lot of give and take," Amber said. "Everyone works hard. Everyone has their good days and bad days. And everyone has something to express that is uniquely their own. "

Who knows, a winning slot machine could be in her future. Hey, that's how much of the wedding was paid for. Amber hit a jackpot at Rolling Hills Casino, winning almost $5,000 on a progressive penny machine.

"Much of that money helped pay for our dream wedding and reception," she said. "Though it rained on our 'planned' wedding, we ended up having 120 people circled around us in my parents' living room like a big hug."
