Ruby Dee And The Snakehandlers  ::  Austin, TX


Hi there friends, family and fans~ we hope 2013 is treating everyone well so far :-)

At last, the Snakehandlers' newest release ROCKABILLY PLAYGROUND will be released mid-March on Dionysus Records! ROCKABILLY PLAYGROUND is a rockabilly roots album meant for the kids- that’s for actual children as well as the tykes inside each and every one of us so-called grown-ups. Written and recorded with mature instrumentation and musicianship to appeal to rockabilly roots lovers of all ages, the song lyrics focus on topics near and dear to all kids’ hearts. Songs about naptime, homework, why we have to follow rules, super best friends, and more fun fill every song with childish glee. Whether a child or still a child-at-heart, you’ll find these songs as rousing and toe-tapping as the next 7-year old does.


Those of you who helped us raise funds for this CD/Vinyl release will be receiving your thank you packages the first week of March. That includes Snakehandlers activity books and more! Otherwise, tell all your friends to run! Don't walk! To pick up this release at record stores near you. Or you can purchase the CD from us via our website as soon as the record is released.
In other news, Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers will be heading back across the pond this March and April to our favorite old stomping grounds around Belgium & Holland, with a few shows across Germany and Sweden for good measure. Meanwhile, we'll be playing a few select shows here at home in Austin during SXSW. Check out our schedule for details. And after we return home from Europe, that's when we'll host a ROCKABILLY PLAYGROUND record release shindig- at Doc's Backyard on Brodie Saturday April 13th. So kids, bring your parents to that show and we'll have a rockin' rousing great time!

We look forward to seeing you sometime in 2013, or at the very least, hearing from you soon!

"...a hard blend of rockabilly sass and supercharged Buck Owens style twang and treble..." — Dusted Magazine

"...a whip-smart mix of Stray Cats-fed rockabilly and Blasters-inspired alt-country with a nod towards Cash and Cline..."" — Austin Chronicle

"Consider the various genres this band fits into: rockabilly, old-style swing and stripped down country. If Ruby Dee's singing inspires others to kill, it can hardly have anything to do with the music" — Santa Fe Reporter

"Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers are the complete package, and a must-see for any lover of traditional, sassy roots-rock twang delivered with no fealty to modern trappings" — Metro Santa Cruz

"Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers are road tested and approved…" — What’s Up
