Memphis After All

Ruby Dee vid still

So right on the heels of having to cancel our trip out to Nashville and back, I got a call from some folks I’ve worked with before on films and was asked to come out to Memphis for a few months to work on a movie out here. So here I am, loving the Memphis culture, digging the sights, smells, tastes and sounds on this side of the river πŸ˜‰ and working hard once again!

We decided since I’ll be here for a while, that I should bring out our band drums and upright bass to keep on hand just in case any shows crop up out here. We can have the gents drive out in a day, play a few shows, and send them packing while I carry on πŸ™‚

Meanwhile, we’ll be playing the Good Guys Car Show in Fort Worth at the Speedway Sunday October 1st sorta bright and early from 11am-2:30pm for the closing day- what fun!! Hope to see all our Dallas-Fort Worth pals out that day! More TBA

And I’ll be flying home for an assortment of other shows too:

Friday October 13 at the Continental Club in Austin from 10p-2a with our favorite Ronnie Dawson-ish kid-fronted band from San Diego the SeaMonks- you’ve probably never heard of these kids, but trust me, you will want to come to this show- they are that amazing!

Then our fave little hoppin’ show at the Driskill Hotel Saturday October 21 9p-11p and the following Monday October 23 at the Continental Club in Austin again from 10p-2a with our Nashville pals Hillbilly Casino- another not to be missed show y’all!!

Stay tuned for more, and meanwhile, I’m writing new songs and will work them out with the band soon enough for your listening and dancing pleasure πŸ˜‰ see y’all soon!

Ah, So Sorry Tennessee!

RDSH Crowd Burnham by the Sea

Arg, well this was a quick decision to head out to Tennessee, and a not quite as quick decision to scrap the mini-tour when all was said and done- not enough time to set up the shows properly or promote them, so… sorry Tennessee! We won’t be toodling out your way next week, but stay tuned for future Snakehandlers sightings!

Meanwhile, stop by any Snakehandlers show near you and we’ll have some fun, shouting and rockin’ and rollin’ πŸ˜‰

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggedy Jig

RDSH Muhlfest

Ok so we’ve been home nearly a week already, but WHEW! We needed that long to get our feet underneath us and to recuperate from one of the very best, rockinest, swinginest, funnest tours we’ve ever had!!! Thank you so much to Kossi, Bones, and Jaeger for backing us up and being the finest gents a gal could ever hope to work with- you make my music sound the way I hear it in my head, and play it oh so well!!!

And of course, thanks to all the venues and folks who took a chance and brought us out to play- we had such fun shouting with you every step of the way- Hayley, Jimmy, Martin, Nigel, Jackie, Derek, Garry, Lorraine, Reto and Conni, the folks at Chez Camille, and absolutely Eamonn Doyle from Catty Town Records!! Let’s do this again next year!!

And now, we’ve begun working on a whole slew of mini-tour dates all around the US- so hang tight- we’ll be posting those soon: first up across to Nashville and back in a few weeks, then again in October, then out to AR/NM in November, and down Southeast to Florida in January 2018. Hey America! Here! We! Go!

As always, we look forward to seeing your smiling faces somewhere soon- until then, keep on a rockin RDSH
