Rattlesnake Shake was a very good five-piece blues-based rock band based in south-east New Hampshire. It consisted of Rick on guitar and vocals (who played with Dilbert McClinton), Matt on drums, Genina on vocals and alternate percussion, Greg (I am not sure of this name) on saxaphone, keys, and vocals, and me on bass. I was with them from 1995 through 1996.

We played several shows, I think all in New Hampshire except one private party (and what a great party it was!) in Amesbury, Massachusetts. The highlights, in addition to the private party already mentioned, was I believe two times for a snowmobile rally called "Sled Dog Weekend".

I did not realize how good this band was until I listened to the tapes while digitizing them in 2017. They were a fun band.
