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.””
