PostHeeHawFunkadelicHipHopNewgrass On Tap For Kannapolis

Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband hspace=4

Perhaps it's appropriate that Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband are performing in Kannapolis this evening. After all, the Avett Brothers are from Cabarrus County. Shupe says there are similarities. Shupe says people called him after watching the Avetts perform at the Grammy Awards to say they sound like the Rubberband. "I think we come from the same camp," Shupe says. Like the Avett Brothers , the Rubberband's been given a lot of labels - Rock, Country, New Grass, Bluegrass, Rockabilly. Shupe has his own term. PostHeeHawFunkadelicHipHip Newgrass Ryan Shup and the Rubberband perform tonight at 7:30 in Kannapolis at the Northwest Cabarrus High School Auditorium.
