Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband

Back by popular demand! 

Ryan Shupe has a crossover style that is unlike any other. Playing a wide range of instruments and musical styles, the band appeals to rockers, fans of bluegrass and jam bands across a broad age range.  Stellar musicianship, witty lyrics, sing-alongs, and introspective ballads take the audience on a highly energized rollercoaster.  With amazing and versatile musicians, Shupe’s original songs are highlighted with hot instrumental solos and tight vocal harmonies. Thoughtful lyrics, rapid-fire vocals, dynamic musicianship and hard driving arrangements make the live show a sure-fire winner!
