A Note from Rex Lyons and the band
Ripcords to debut new drummer, David Read, at Crawfish Festival and say a heartfelt goodbye to Phil Regan, original Ripcord drummer.
Phil Regan, original drummer for the Ripcords has put down the sticks. "It was an honor and a privilege to have Phil as band mate...He’s a true friend, and an extraordinary human being" said Rex Lyons, a sentiment echoed by all his band mates.
David Read has officially joined the band, bringing an enthusiastic energy coupled with a road tested history of experience. David has performed with a Who's Who of Syracuse royalty: The Works (Sammy Hall of Fame inductee's), The Late Show, Public Eye w/ Mark Doyle and Joe Whiting to name a few. David's flawless meter and a and versatile drumming style fits the bill. The Ripcords cover blues, Americana, swing and rock-a-billy, so a mastery of all those styles is part of the Ripcords sound.
Come hear Rex and Irv Lyons, Scott Ebner, Jay Gould and David Read headline at The Crawfish Festival from 5:30 - 7:00 on May 2nd, 2015. An added horn section consisting of Tom Witkowski (Trumpet, Trombone) and young phenom Dunham Hall (sax) will bring the Louisiana sound. This is their 3rd consecutive year performing at the event, which raises fund towards Operation Northern Comfort. Money raised rebuilds homes and funds other construction projects.
The Crawfish Festival is 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 2nd at Clinton Square.
Admission to festival is free. Food and beverages are for sale. Enjoy: Boiled crawfish, Gulf shrimp, jambalaya, red beans and rice, pulled pork, clams, salt potatoes and more.
