Happy Spring (Almost!)

RD-JH Floores Good

Greetings to all of our friends, family and fans out there! We hope everyone is having a stellar Spring, and enjoying health and good mojo, wherever you are πŸ™‚

I thought I would bring you up to date on what’s been going on with my health: if you recall, a few years ago I ran some posts about my failing vocal strength and how upsetting that was to me, spiritually. And how hard it was for me to watch Jorge continue to play with others, especially folks who run in the same vein as I do musically. That was a very hard time for me, and I appreciate the support and love I received from you πŸ™‚

Well things have certainly changed! It turns out that my broken ribs had caused a great deal of havoc with my vocal chords, pulling them out of alignment. I have been going to phyical therapy religiously, and giving my voice a well-deserved break, and doing whatever it takes to regain my health. As a result, my voice hasn’t sounded this good- this warm and melifluous and resonant- in years. On the last few tours we’ve done, my voice held up, and I think it’s continuing to grow and resonate well. YAY!!!

We are still not playing as often as we have in the past- partly due to the miscommunications we had with Atomic Music Group, and partly due to my being away working on various films (and partly due to our personnel change in drummers!)- all good timing it seems. We have started to add shows back into our calendar, and I have been writing new songs that I can hardly wait to share with the band and then with you πŸ™‚

So now we’re just looking forward to seeing your bright and shiny smiling faces at a show sometime soon. There are a handful of exciting festivals and events we’ll be playing throughout the year, 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’!

Looking Forward to May!

rd-40x40

It’s been an interesting, if tumultuous, early Spring for us in la vida de Snakehandlers, so we’re looking forward to May with great enthusiasm!

First, we’ll be playing with new drummer Michael Bahan, and second, we’ll be playing our first shows after a brief hiatus due to the booking agency problems we experienced this past Winter and Spring. I’e been writing new songs, and can hardly wait to share them with the band and bring them your way πŸ™‚

So take a peek at our calendar to see where and when we’ll be playing next- starting off with a handful of shows around Austin and environs- we look forward to seeing your bright and shiny smiling faces soon!

Happy Anniversary!

Jorge&Ruby

Since Jorge and I have been married, we’ve always ended up either flying to or from tours/gigs or actually played on our anniversary. Heck, we even had a show the day we got married! We always laugh about how romantic we are about it πŸ˜‰

This year, Jorge is on tour overseas with Patricia Vonne while I’m working on a tv pilot in Dallas. I’m not complaining or even sad about it- I’m happy we’re both working at what we love to do- and in fact, Jorge and I will talk later today (yay Facetime!).

I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary! And share that with everyone who knows and loves us πŸ™‚
