Hold on everyone because 2013 is gonna be one for the ages!! Thanks again for all of your support, we can't do all the wonderful things we do without it!! Happy New Year & Much Love, Hurricane Ruth

Thoughts & Prayers

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone on the east coast, and throughout the country, that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.

What A Year!

I can't believe that it has only been a little over a year since the four of us started working together. I am very blessed to be working with these three great musicians. Thanks for a great year guys, heres to many more! We have accomplished so much! We compiled our first CD with six of our own tunes. It is doing very well, and let's hope that trend continues. We have continued to create new music, and we are well on our way to another CD in the future. We have played some fantastic shows and venues, capped off (so far) with our trip to Memphis for the IBC's. Our summer is packed with MORE great shows, check out our schedule and join us for a few! The best part of the all of this is we are having a blast doing it all! Thank you so much to all of our friends, fans and family for all of your great support this year! We couldn't have done any of this without YOU!!

Off To A Great Start

We can't say THANK YOU enough to all of our friends, fans, and family for the early success of our debut CD. We are beyond excited with how "The Power of the Blues...Feels Like a Hurricane" has been received so far, and it's only been out a month! These are very exciting times for Hurricane Ruth! We thank all of you who are going along for the ride with us. HOLD ON!!!

I want to send out a thank you to everyone for the good thoughts and well wishes for Ruth. She is finally feeling a little better after a NASTY bout with the stomach flu. Bad, bad stuff!! Also a big thanks to all of our friends who stepped in on Monday!! They came to the rescue, on less than no notice, and put on a great show! I can't say thanks enough! Stay tuned everyone, because the Hurricane will be back on her feet soon!! In the meantime please check out the new CD (The Power of the Blues...Feels like a Hurricane).


Hurricane Ruth's debut CD "The Power of the Blues...Feels Like a Hurricane is here!!! After only being together for a few months the band compiled 6 originals and 2 covers for this explosive new CD. It's the epitome of power blues with a soft side too. HR is extremely proud of the this CD, and can't wait to share it with their fans!! The first CD release party is in Springfield on Monday 2/13 at The Alamo for the ICBC's Blue Monday. Show starts at 8, but you better get there early because the place will be packed!

Headed to Memphis this week to compete in the International Blues Challenge. WOW, what an honor! So excited for this opportunity, and thankful to the Prairie Crossroads Blues Society for the chance to represent them. We have worked hard and will give it our all. We are looking forward to hanging out with friends, and meeting many new ones. The atmosphere in Memphis will be electric and we intend to soak it all up!!
