Since forming on the sweltering shores of Dauphin Island, Alabama, just outside of Mobile, RuffWater Band has continually toured the Gulf Coast and southeastern United States while sharing the stage with a multitude of national acts like David Alan Coe, Jimmy Van Zant, Percy Sledge, Billy Preston, and Wet Willie just to name a few.  Along the way we have established a reputation for providing a high energy show that gives our audience a heavy dose of straight-ahead rock and blues (and maybe even a little country, if you ask for it).  In fact, after a RuffWater performance our clients tend to hire the band over and over again for their future events.  That's truly a testament to RuffWater's professionalism, musical ability, and showmanship.  Just check out our Corporate Client list and you'll see!  

Add to that list the hundreds of  club dates, music festivals, and private events (such as weddings, anniversaries, and birthday parties) that RuffWater has done over the years and you'll form your own opinion as to why RuffWater is one of the top rated event bands in the United States.  In fact, RuffWater is consistently rated in the top 5 bands in the southeast on  That's pretty impressive, since Gigmasters is the largest on-line booking site in the United States with over 10,000 acts nationwide!

In the entertainment business it is said that the BEST bands get booked first.  If you're considering booking a band for your event, don't wait!  Book RuffWater Band today!  Just click on the link below or email us.  It's that simple!
