Snake Blood Remedy is a traditional country music and old time band.  Playing a variety of classic songs from 1800 to 1970, along with original compositions from singer, songwriter and founder J.D. Cook.  The band began around 2013 with original members J.D. Cook and Mitch Holstein (washboard), soon being joined by John Paul Jackson (bass) and Micky Lynn (banjo). With numerous players coming and going through the years eventually a solid lineup formed around 2017 with the addition of Andre and Abigail Gruber on lead guitar and fiddle. Snake Blood Remedy pays due respect to some of the great music of days past and offers the listeners an authentic example of American folk tradition.

Chattanooga NOW

"The Duval Blues finds a band that has honed their sound and is tighter than ever... I highly recommend this album if you're looking for a good honky tonk record to start off the new year."

Gary Hayes Country

"The roots of Snake Blood Remedy go back to Hank Williams Sr. yet their songs have modern and timeless themes."
