The Rattlesnakes are a dynamic three piece Rockabilly band based in Newcastle NSW, Australia. Offering their own infectious and high octane brand of rockabilly and ol’ school rock‘n’roll, the band formed over five years ago after meeting at a local Retro Rockets gig and haven’t looked back. The Rattlesnakes have now performed over 200 shows around the east coast of Australia. The Rattlesnakes are a big hit with audiences in the Newcastle and Hunter region and have a strong following on the Gold Coast, throughout Queensland and in Sydney.
The Rattlesnakes have appeared at numerous rockabilly festivals throughout Australia including Wintersun 2010 on the Gold Coast and nostalgia events in Sydney, Canberra and the Hunter Valley. The Rattlesnakes have established a reputation for highly entertaining, danceable performances. The band has a strong following of rockabilly dancers and car and hot rod enthusiasts and receive regular airplay on Australian Rockabilly Radio including Coral Coast Radio, Bay FM in Brisbane and Coast FM in the Sydney region. The Rattlesnakes offer a great upbeat rockabilly sound including influences of spaghetti western music, surf sounds and rock‘n’roll with a unique Australian flavour.

High Noon In Hell Town was released at the Kurri Kurri Festival in March 2010 and has been very well received.
