Rattlesnake Highway are a band from the Mid-(South)West playing Country Rock, Rocking Country & Americana.

Born in 2012, somewhere deep in the Wiltshire/Somerset badlands, Rattlesnake Highway comprises four seasoned musicians from various backgrounds (blues, rock, folk and country) with a shared love for good ol' Country Rock.

You can expect up-beat, up-tempo, good-time music as performed by The Byrds, The Eagles, Brooks & Dunn, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and many others. Great foot-tapping, feel-good songs featuring sumptuous vocal harmonies and lush acoustic guitar, topped with soaring Rickenbacker electric 12-string or biting Fender Telecaster, backed up by a driving rhythm section, with the occasional dash of Mandolin or Harmonica for good measure.

(Rattlesnake Highway are also available as an Acoustic Duo, for a more mellow experience)

A great time is guaranteed!
