Wow! What a great time we had at Meyersdale last Saturday! Perfect weather, wonderful crowd, what a fun time! Thanks to all our friends who follow the band and our new friends from the Somerset and Ligonier area! Next up, the dancing crowd at Carmichaels on Friday the 19th, then the geranium festival at Connellsville on May 25th. Carry on!
Hope the winter is not treating you badly!
High Ryder will kick off this tour season with the Pa Maple Festival at Meyersdale PA on March 30th from 12 till 3 pm. Things are really building for this, our twenty-fifth year of entertaining the best fans in Western PA, maybe the best fans anywhere!
We will be back at Lions Square on June 30th, and Scottdale Gazebo in July. We will again be entertaining at the Connellsville Geranium Festival as well as the Saltlick Firemans Fair. ( A note about the Geranium Festival, come early, as the flowers sell quickly. There are also many vendors to visit and LOTS of good food !) If you would like to see HRB at your favorite venue, just give us a name! Come up the mountain and have a sweet time with us at the Maple Festival ! Take care.
Luv ya all !! HRB
Wow! It seems like yesterday I was sending out introductory info on the newly-formed High Ryder Band, and here it is twenty-four years later, and we are preparing for perhaps our best tour season yet!
What great memories, and what great friends we have made with the band. We have had events in PA, Maryland, WVA, and Ohio, and I believe the best fans anywhere came out to hear the HRB.
We have some new and exciting plans for this year, beginning with this new website. I apologize for not getting things updated sooner, but we’re learnin’. Thanks to designer Len for his patience.
We will be starting 2019 out with the dancing crowd at the Cedarbrook Golf Club this Saturday night, January 12th, from 7:00 pm. The schedule is beginning to take shape nicely.
Want to congratulate our drummer Andrew and wife Sara on their new (and beautiful) baby girl. Also congratulate bassist Andy and Carol on becoming first-time grandparents!
Hi everybody! Well, here we are with a brand new web-page to celebrate our twenty-fifth year! Really hope you like it, hopefully it is easier to access. Thanks to Len for his artistry and talent putting it all together. Please let us know what you think of the changes at firstname.lastname@example.org! We are wrapping up our best concert season so far, with a lot of new venues this Summer, and a lot of new friends! We played the Fayette Co. Fair, Rivers Edge KOA, Northmoreland Park Labor United,The Connellsville Geranium Festival along with our regular shows at Lions Square, Scottdale Gazebo, Tri-Town Homecoming, Saltlick Fair, Carmichaels Center, and others! We were honored to have as our guests at various shows Herb Humphries, Kyra Tabak End, Anna Jane Allen as well as world famous blues guitarist, Ernie Hawkins! What a Summer! But let’s not forget next year! We are currently booking for 2019 and once again hope to entertain the worlds best fans! So watch this website for the next HRB concert or dance close to you and come say hello!! HRB
If you would like to see High Ryder play at your favorite venue, put in a word for us!! THANKS !! HRB
Our new hats are here, and they feature the “Making Country Great Again” theme. We have them in white and blue. Come check ’em out!
You may ask yourself, ’’What sets the High Ryder band apart from other bands?’’ Well, we’re not pretty (obviously) and we’re not young (unfortunately). We don’t have screaming teenagers hanging on our every word. We don’t put on fancy stage shows. We’re not into pyrotechnics or laser shows. We don’t blast out eardrums with super-powerful electronic gear. What we do offer is music, resulting from a combined experience of more than 200 years.
If you haven’t seen the band lately you’re in for a big surprise. Everyone sings – which is rare in most bands these days. A new line-up of songs and the vast song lists guarantees that you will never hear the same show twice. Bassist and all-around musician Andy Hresko also sings classic country songs, and adds a great 3rd part to the harmony. Come out and see us soon.
Luv ya all!! HRB
