RUBY RED’S DIXIELAND BAND

Meet The Band

The Ruby Red’s Dixieland Band was formed in 1966.

The original members migrated to Atlanta from New Orleans, New York and San Francisco where they had already gained expertise in a new fad that was sweeping the country… banjo sing-a-long parlors. Folks would gather in a converted warehouse with pitchers of draft beer and roasted peanuts (throwing the shells on the floor) and play loud and rowdy music on banjos, trombones, tubas and washboards. The place in Atlanta was an old warehouse on Ellis Street.

Ruby Red’s Warehouse had a successful 4-year run on Ellis Street and then relocated as the first club to open in the original Underground Atlanta where they packed ’em in nightly for another 6 years. After MARTA construction ended Underground the band began playing all over the Southeast… backyard BBQs, pool parties, weddings, divorces, wake-up breakfasts, all-night street dances, store openings, store closings, road races, parades, house parties… even Jazz Funerals. They’ve played for every major corporation in the South and nearly every political candidate in the state. They played for the FIRST opening day of the Atlanta Braves in 1966 and have been a regular feature at Braves games over the years. For close to 50 years the Ruby Reds Band has been playing New Orleans Jazz and Blues and lending their unique style and instrumentation to every imaginable musical genre for folks all over the South… and they’d like to play for you, too!
