We love when our DJ pals let us know that they’ve been spinning our tracks. Check out WHUS show Dark Side of the Highway for some classic dark Americana, where my always sunny side fits right in 😉 Dark Side of the Highway
In other news, we’ll be coming back to Seattle to play the Kustom Kulture Festival in August, later this year!! RDSH perform on Friday August 17, time TBA
Plus we’ll also be playing a private anniversary event for our dearest pals Ed and Britta and a last chance to perform at the infamous Highway 99 Blues Club… so much rockin’ and rollin’ in the great NW, I can hardly wait!!
And last, we will be taking a brief performing hiatus while a) we work on new songs, b) Jorge is away playing with our pal Patricia Vonne in Germany throughout April, and c) we work shows back into our schedule from AMG 🙂 And when we start playing again, we’ll hit the ground running, you better believe it! We’ll have new drummer Michael Bahan on board, and a whole slew of new songs to try out on you. Looking forward to it!
Until the next time, keep it round like a record, and tasty like… hm you fill in the blank 😉
We’ve been home for slightly less than a week and are starting to work on new songs that I’ve written over the past few years but that we haven’t had time to go over yet. With our booking agency situation, we suddenly find ourselves with plenty of time to get to those new songs with few interruptions, so…. here! we! go!
The newer songs are more jump blues and swing than what I’ve written in the past, but let’s see how they turn out once they’ve been through the Jorge Harada mill and once we expose them to our rhythm section. It’s always exciting to see how songs change as we bring in new pieces to the mix 🙂
If you didn’t read what happened with our booking agency, there were some communication issues, leaving us suddenly with no shows on our calendar for a while. I’ve been scrambling to amend that, and the calendar is slowly filling up. But I’d much rather turn that over to someone we can trust, so if anyone knows any booking agencies out there who might be interested in working with a hard-working, reliable and proven rockabilly roots band, then please send us suggestions and/or send them our way! We appreciate any help in this quarter greatly, as the situation we’re in has sorta tanked us temporarily…
We appreciate all of you, and look forward to seeing you soon sometime at a show- check out our schedule at www.rubydeemusic.com and keep it tasty!
We are home again after a whirlwind tour down under. We had an amazing time, thanks to master Chuck Stokes, Frank Macri, Jzanelle Wilkins, Dawn Barrett, DJ Ashley, Stevie Kaze, and of course Jordan Thomas on double bass and Simon Wale on drums. These two gents not only performed our songs beautifully, but they were genuinely great to travel with- making for an uber successful tour and great times had by all!!
We can hardly wait to go back and do it all again- until then, it sure is nice being home 🙂
