The Deedle Deedle Dees / Red Hook Ramblers Winter Tour

The Deedle Deedle Dees and the Red Hook Ramblers are starting our two-week tour of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas this week. Below is the full schedule, including evening performances.

Who are the Red Hook Ramblers? The Ramblers are NYC's premier Dixieland band. Chris Johnson (AKA Booker Dee) plays banjo and piano with them. On our new album, the Ramblers play the horn parts on "Growl Growl," "Xu Lapi Knewel, New Jersey," and "Bring 'Em In." On the road, they'll be adding horns, guitars, lap steel, banjo, and other stuff to many more songs. And at night, the Deedle Deedle Dees will turn into their back-up band, performing old-timey jazz, blues, and other great party music.

Key to schedule below:
DDDs = Family concert featuring the Deedle Deedle Dees. Open to the public. Ages 0 and up.
