RUBY DEE & THE SNAKEHANDLERS, WILL BE ON STAGE AT THE CAMBRIDGE HOTE, SATURDAY JULY 30TH
Who are Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers? Music lovers the world over continue to learn about this band that’s earned a nationwide following across The U.S.A and internationally with its honest, original music fused with synergy, sugar, sweat and soul.
Ruby Dee’s hillbilly sass, sounds like a Texas dance hall chanteuse visiting us from another era. Aided by Jorge Harada of Dragstrip 77’s top-flight guitar work, Ruby alternates ballroom tenderness with rowdy roadhouse rock. This is honest, original music fused with synergy, sugar, sweat and soul.
Risky, and perhaps just a bit risqué, Ruby Dee and her runaway train tight combo plays an Americana that encompasses Texas honky-tonk, Bakersfield twang, Memphis rockabilly, Western swing and good old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll. After nearly constant touring for the past 14 years, including thousands of dates across America and Europe, Ruby is bringing her soul stirring and feet moving show to Australia.
With a reputation for high-energy shows that precedes them, Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers deliver to capacity crowds worldwide. This former truck-driving, roustabout brings every bit of on-the-road attitude to every performance, whether it be to a massive festival crowd or to ecstatic swing dancers in a small club.
Support on the night will be Newcastle’s very own Rockabilly rebels Bad Luck Kitty!
