So, this may not be much news to most of the people who know, but in the month of March, Ruby Dee and I have left Austin, TX to relocate to New York City! I will miss all my Austin friends and all the bands and people I have played with, and now we’re onto a new chapter.

We will continue to do Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers – because, once a Snakehandler, always a Snakehandler – and as I do what I do, I will continue to do pickup gigs, steady bands, recording and touring as a member of a band or hired gun. Looking forward to bringing to you the Ruby Dee And The Snakehandlers’ Texas-style roots-twang-billy flavor to a bar, lounge, honky-tonk, roadhouse, brewery, gas station, grocery store, bingo parlor, pizza joint, or any other venue that’s screaming for live music !

So – submitted for your approval, enter this new dimension. A dimension of sound. A dimension of sight. A dimension of mind. Moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. Enter a man, Jorge Harada. A man who plays guitar and bass. A man who is an unknown variable in a sea of constants. A man whose mettle will be tested yet again in a fiery crucible of rock’n’roll. Who needs guitar or bass? Stay tuned.
