Williams & Ree
"The Indian and the White Guy"
What do you call a Sioux Indian from Pierre, South Dakota and a fair-skinned Scandinavian from Mountain Home, Idaho? The Indian and the White Guy, of course!
Williams & Ree share a unique ability to make people laugh, even if it comes from laughing at themselves a trait which drew them together in 1968. Bruce Williams and Terry Ree met at Black Hills State College in Spearfish, South Dakota where they were both majoring in draft dodging. The two ended up playing together in a band, working the bars and college parties. The band, with a repertoire of 10 or 12 songs, needed help filling in the time, so Bruce and Terry jumped in with the ethnic jocularity. Soon their comedy became a bigger draw than the band and The Indian and the White Guy comedy team was born.
The two have been a couple since those college days and have been compared to the likes of "cotton and polyester," "bourbon and water," "peas and carrots," "Sears and Roebuck" and "Williams and Ree."
For more than 26 years, the two have entertained audiences from coast to coast sharing stages with such superstars as Garth Brooks, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels and Randy Travis. Their show is a lively, fast-paced mixture of comedy bits, social/political commentary and racial zings entwined with original songs.
Jack Hurst of the Chicago Tribune describes their show as "a sort of ethnic-oriented 'Hee-Haw' with strong dashes of 'Saturday Night Live.' Playing on their differences is a large part of the Williams & Ree humor."
Williams & Ree had a regular guest-starring role on the popular cooking show, "Country Kitchen" with Florence Henderson in 1986. Throughout 1990 and 1991, they worked as regulars on "Hee-Haw," giving them national television exposure to millions of viewers every week. Widely known to country music fans across the nation, they have been featured on "Comedy Central" and "Laff TV with Williams & Ree." They co-hosted TNN's "The Charlie Daniels' Talent Roundup" and added their humor to this weekly talent contest.
The majority of people who follow the career of Williams & Ree realize that even though they aren't serious about much, they are serious about music. They have had nominations from the Music City News Awards not only for Comedians of the Year, but also for Best Vocal Duo. In 1995 they were nominated by the Country Music Association for Best Vocal Duo!
Williams & Ree continue to create a fresh, new approach to their comedy routine while continuing to hone their musical prowess. And what do they call this frantic lifestyle? They just call it FUN!!
