Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers just finished relocating to Austin, TX where they are gearing up for their 3rd European tour set in May, 2009. Then the band turns right around and heads back to France with Rick Broussard and Two Hoots and a Holler in July for a short stint there. And after a short rest back home, the Snakehandlers head north and east to New York for a festival there, turning south to Nashville for the Americana Music Association conference, and west towards home and the holidays.
We sure hope to see you out on the road soon. Until then, check in on our website at www.rubydeemusic.com for tour schedules, band blogs and live feeds, swag, new tunes, and more!
See you around cats, ruby dee
Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers are a high octane Americana roots and rockabilly band with a penchant for playing twang with attitude! We've released four CD's over the years so far: two EP's and two full-length CD's. NORTH OF BAKERSFIELD, our first release, garnered high accolades from all over, including some very kind words from our friends at No Depression. MILES FROM HOME, released in 2008, charted at #83 on the AMA Top 100, and #26 on the FAR Third Coast Music Top 40 in Texas.
The band continues to write and play tunes for their adoring fans, and after 3+ years on the road, continues to tour the world over.
"Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers make a sweet honky-tonk country racket that's perfect for long road trips, lazy afternoons and jumpin' and jivin' at the corner bar," says NWsource.com. "If you like Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, X or any combination thereof, you'll immediately recognize the band as kindred souls. If you don't like those great artists, guess what? You may end up dancing to The Snakehandlers anyway, despite yourself. The band's that good."
