Williams and Ree - Music and Comedy
Williams and Ree are a music and comedy phenomenon. This award winning duo eschews political correctness and conformity and spins comedy gold from the union of a Plains Indian (Terry Ree) and a Western Angloid (Bruce Williams). Their comedy journey took them to the World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles where they worked with and befriended now legendary humorists Robin Williams, David Letterman, Jay Leno and Charlie Hill.

The framework surrounding the comedic pair is music, which has earned them a Native American Music Award Entertainer of the Year win and a CMA vocal duo nomination. Their television credits include Country Kitchen, HeeHaw, Laff TV and Comedy Central. They currently host Country Thunder Music Festivals around North America and are featured on the Grand Ole Opry and Sirius Radio.

Williams and Ree headline shows at fairs, festivals, theaters, casinos, and small, out-of-the-way dives. Williams and Ree have proven themselves as entertainment stalwarts for over four decades, making them one of the longest running show business success stories in modern history.
