Williams and Ree

Williams and Ree, also known as The Indian and The White Guy, are a music and comedy phenomenon. They eschew political correctness and conformity and spin comedy gold from the union of a Plains Indian (Terry Ree) and a Western Angloid (Bruce Williams). They met at Black Hills State and began playing rock and roll together.

“I started pickin’ and singing with Terry Ree in Pangburn Hall Dormitory, on the Black Hills State campus, in the fall of 1968,” Bruce said. “We would go over to the girls’ dorms and serenade them from their front lawns and they would trickle down and sing and sway with us. This proved invaluable for garnering the female freshman vote when we ran for president and vice president of the freshman class.”

The framework surrounding the pair is music, which earned them a CMA vocal duo nomination. Their television credits include Country Kitchen, HeeHaw, Laff TV and Comedy Central. They currently host four Country Music Festivals around North America and are featured on Sirius Radio and their own irreverent podcast, The Red, White, and Slightly Blue Show. Williams and Ree headline shows at fairs, festivals, theaters, casinos, and small, out-of-the-way dives.
