The RattleSnakes


Black Blizzard


We are The RattleSnakes


The RattleSnakes are a six piece progressive ensemble performing a distinctly California take on modern Bluegrass.

Their original music grows from roots of traditional bluegrass and adds flavors drawn from modern folk-rock and even outlaw country.

Add in a few surprising, tasty covers (Warren Zevon in Bluegrass!?!) and you have the essence of a RattleSnakes show. Among their number they count current and former studio and TV executives, a filmmaker, a talent agent, a gold record winning band manager, an actual rocket scientist as well as a rumored international spy! They have played dates across California and in Colorado including sold out shows at the famous Molly Malones.

On the heels of dates last year across Southern California and Colorado, including playing on ’top to the world' at Aspen Mountain, the group recently took second place at the Topanga Banjo Fiddle Festival.

Look for their their debut EP, Black Blizzard, on iTunes in spring 2019.
