- Dec 31: The Driskill Hotel - Austin, TX
Hi all! Well, we got back from a quickie trip up to Seattle to play the Kustom Kulture Festival and a private show at Highway 99 Blues Club where we had a BALL at both events- have I mentioned how much I love playing with Rick Watson on bass and Michael Bahan on drums?! And of course Senor Jorge Harada on guitar, always 😉 anyway, we had a lovely time in the NW, and came back to Austin enthused about working on new material!
Our first night in the studio, we worked on 3 new songs- finally!!! And they all sound really good- really unique- one blues number, one rhumba, and one swing-stroll- not your average rockabilly fare! Plus, I hope folks listen to the lyrics, because I have something to say in each of these songs…
Now here’s the crazy CRAZY part of our update: I am leaving the country in less than 2 weeks- heading to Jordan to work on a film until the end of the year!! So the gents can work on these songs- plus hopefully a few more that we can work out the deets on before I go- and we might get one rehearsal in before our last show of the year- New Year’s eve at the Driskill, as always 😉
We are playing a few shows before I head out- so if you’re around Austin, please come see us this upcoming Saturday September 8 out in Luckenbach for their LuckenRod Classic Car & Rod Show from noon to 6pm, early show! And then Tuesday September 11 we’re playing in support of HAAM- that’s the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians- at Whole Foods on North Lamar 7pm while you shop 😉 and then I leave town, so please stop by and drop some lovin’ on us before I go 🙂
Now we’re just looking forward to seeing your bright and shiny smiling faces at a show either right before the end of 2018 or sometime in the new year already… There are a handful of exciting festivals and events we’ll be playing throughout 2019, playing our new songs for you bright and clear- so be sure to check out our calendar to find out where and when we’ll be playing next, and until then, keep on a rockin’!
We are REALLY excited about our quick trip to Seattle next week to play the Kustom Kulture Festival on Saturday in Kingston (early for RDSH- we play at 12:15pm) and then on Sunday a private party at Highway 99 Blues Club for our pals Ed and Britta and all our friends there 🙂
We can’t wait to see your awesome smiling faces- please make sure you stop by to say hi to the band! As always, we promise hi-jinx 😉
It’s been far too long since we’ve played any shows locally- ok I know it’s only been a few weeks, but I love singing my heart out for you, sharing new and old songs, and sharing the stage with some of my favorite folks whenever possible. So, I really look forward to seeing your smiling faces in a few weeks at Cafe Mueller out by the old airport Saturday July 28th.
That’s a really sweet little cafe connected to the HEB there, where you can stop by in the early evening for a great meal, a glass of wine or local brew- or fresh lemonade if that’s what tempts you- and of course some great local music from 7pm to 9pm. Perfect for a night out with the kids! Or without them!! 😉
If it’s been a while since you’ve seen the Snakehandlers, then we think you should stop by and hang out for a bit- I promise you’ll be pleased with how we’re cranking it up these days 🙂 After this show, we’ll be off to Seattle for a weekend in August, and we have a few choice shows coming up out in Luckenbach and around Austin this Fall, but really we’re taking some time to work on new songs, and look forward to playing them for you soon. So, we hope to see your smiling faces July 28th y’all!
