The Gift Tour, 2013 - November 13, 2013
It’s the most banjoful time of the year! Every Christmas, Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand wrap their virtuosic eccentricities into one clever Christmas concert they call “The Gift”.
If you’ve seen the RubberBand in action, you’re no stranger to their lively music. For Christmas, though, you’ll get a glimpse into the inner-workings of the band as you see (in hilarious flashback) the most sincere Christmas wish of each member of the band. You’ll then watch in rapt disbelief as the band shares gifts with each other – gifts that couldn’t possibly be less desirable to the giftee.
You’ll laugh, you’ll clap, you’ll weep with empathy for these mis-gifted pickers, and just when all hope seems lost, well, let’s just say there’s some jolly intervention that saves the day.
The message behind The Gift concert is best conveyed through Ryan’s song of the same name. It tells of He who gave us all a Gift, and reminds us, in spite of the levity, of the gravity of Christmas.
With crafty intertwining, you’ll experience classic Christmas music, monster musicianship, hilarious humor, and a message that will set the tone for the rest of the season.
On Ze Autobahn - September 17, 2013
We were once on tour in Germany and heard this wild cover of Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again", but in German.
So here we are, "On ze Autobahn". Fall 2013 finds us in North Carolina, Page Arizona, an then a tour down the eastern seaboard from Philidelphia through the Carolinas and on down into Flordia.
Not gonna make it to those? Keep in touch for the Christmas shows!
It's the OTHER most wonderful time of the year! - May 01, 2013
Our annual Sandy Amphitheater show is SO HERE. Well, June 7th, to be exact. We're hoping all of you will be SO THERE. We will be. And "we" includes Nate, so don't pretend you won't be dying to see him.
