Ruby Dee & the Snakehandlers!

I love that Austin band Ruby Dee & the Snakehandlers to smithereens!! They done play at the big old party for the book Rockabilly Goats Gruff.  Here they are ripping through Sean Mencher’s song Rockin’ Troll.  Man, can that Betty sing!!  And, yup, that’s me in the video, rockin’.  As in rockin’ troll.  Yup.

Ruby Dee & the Snakehandlers really makes the kiddos swing.  They have a new CD full to the brim with music for these short people.  Check out Rockabilly Playground!
