Ryan Shupe And The Rubberband Is Coming to Snake River!

The Snake River Fine Arts Association is excited to announce that bluegrass sensation Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband will be performing at Snake River High School on Saturday, Nov. 1st, at 7:30 p.m.

The five man band hails from Salt Lake City and has an impressive following across the country.

Bluegrass Unlimited says, “Ryan Shupe & the RubberBand has a crossover style that is fresh and unlike any other. Their self-dubbed PostHeeHawFunkadelicHipHopNewgrass sound is a ““Fresh hybrid of new music influenced by bluegrass but featuring the percussive fervor of rock, rap and other styles . . . They bring imaginative arrangements and daring musicianship to their quintet sound.””

To read more about them and listen to some music samples, visit shupe.net.

In addition to the concert, you can get involved with the band several other times while they’re here.  Activities on Nov. 1st will include:

  • Concert at 7:30 p.m. ($10)
  • Afternoon workshop with the band from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. ($7)
  • Cowboy dutch oven dinner from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. ($12 for adults, $8 for children 12 and under)
  • Meet & Greet with the band after the show, where you can buy delectable desserts!

Whether your goal is to hear some great music, have a fun date night, spend time with your family, or just get out of the house, come see Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband on Nov. 1st!
