The Fabulous Ripcords can be heard most weekends in CNY rippin’ through roots, rock-a-billy, country, blues, swing, and music influenced by both New Orleans, Bakersfield and more. The Ripcords have performed across the northeast to crowds in New York City and Boston as well as their home in Central New York. The band and its members have opened for and played on bills with such noted musicians as Santana, Steve Miller, Blues Traveler, Ry Cooder, Rick Derringer, Phish and more over the years.
The Fabulous Ripcords began as a project put together by Rex Lyons to explore some of his favorite music using some of his collaborators in The Roustabouts, another renowned roots band in CNY fronted by Dugan Henhawk. Dugan and Rex go way back to CNY’s seminal punk and roll band, Whiteboy and the Wagonburners, that set CNY afire in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
The band will be performing in East Park on Friday, July 27 at 3:45 p.m.
