When you're thinking blues, you're thinking evil
The true sound of Outlaw Boogie! It’s heavy, loud, swinging & tough! And it’s coming at you spittin’ venom!

Between the mid-70’s and mid-80’s, the worlds of Southern/Country Rock, Hard/Heavy Rock, Prog, Proto-Metal and NWOBHM collided in a brief but stellar shining moment that was sonically crystallized by cult & legendary groups such as POINT BLANK, BLACKFOOT, MOLLY HATCHET, ALKANA, HYDRA, ASHBURY & BLACKHORSE! And like a bolt of lightning out of the dark and desolate sky, a new group has exploded on the underground heavy music scene to carry on the torch of those legendary pioneers, and that band is RATTLESNAKE! Hailing from Brooklyn NY, this 4-piece craft classic, epic & breathtaking tunes, powered by dazzling twin guitar melodies/harmonies/solos, and an earnest delivery of soulfully tough vocals, all served up greasy and swampy! You’re gonna love the way it BITES!

Now they say “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”, well then RATTLESNAKE’s sound and swagger should come as no surprise to those familiar with the band members’ other/previous musical groups, and this fact only strengthens their creative forces! However, RATTLESNSAKE is without a doubt, its own unique musical vision! It’s a colossally focused synergy, and quite possibly some of the best darn rock n roll any of these underground heavyweights have ever made!

The group is comprised of:
Adam Kriney – drums/lead vocals (THE GOLDEN GRASS/LA OTRACINA)
Blake Charlton – electric guitar/backing vocals (RAMMING SPEED/SLASHERS/HELLBENT HOOKER)
JP Gilbert – electric guitar/lead vocals (J.A.C.K./JP & THE GILBERTS)
Don Berger – electric bass

RATTLESNAKE is Outlaw Boogie! Blazing hard, riding high & swinging low on that lonesome road! Across the dusty desert on up through the mountain high! It’s the thunderous sound of hard working rock n roll lifers! They’ve got enough fire & power to share the stage with any modern rock/metal band out there and the classic/timeless feel to warm an old bluesman’s heart.


They’re heavily influenced by the Southern/Country Rock of BLACKFOOT, MOLLY HATCHET, OUTLAWS, ZZ TOP, BLACKHORSE, POINT BLANK, ALLMANS and SKYNYRD as well as the Heavy/Progressive Rock of BUDGIE, TRUTH & JANEY, ALKANA, EPITAPH, WISHBONE ASH and WILDFIRE. But influences aside, RATTLESNAKE craft monstrously driving and infectious tunes. They possess enough contemporary fire and power to share the stage with any modern rock n roll/heavy metal band and enough classic timeless feel to warm an old bluesman’s heart.
It’s tough, it’s real, and it bites like a son-of-a-bitch…watch out for RATTLESNAKE!
With a healthy dose of vintage groove and melodies, Bailjack ( a rock group of four members, Two guitars- drums- and bass) may at anytime evoke the strains of Grand Funk Railroad and Deep Purple or Hendrix on a Pink Floyd kick. A heavy Rock and Roll band with the emphasis on three part vocal harmonies, we strive for music that moves you.
