Ripe cares so much about everyone involved in our community so we will be requiring proof of full COVID-19 vaccinations for all of our upcoming headline shows. 

On a primal level, we react to music through movement. A head-nod, a foot-tap, or a handclap certainly shows appreciation, but dancing seals  the eternal bond between audience and musician. Siphoning the spirits of rock, funk,  R&B, jazz, and pop through a kaleidoscope of unpredictable and virtuosic improvisation,  Boston-based Ripe consistently bring people to their feet. Most importantly, they prove  that “dance music” in its purest form doesn’t have to come from computers and  synthesizers. It can be an unstoppable groove or an extended moment of ecstatic  release. An inimitable and indefinable  chemistry has separated and singled out Ripe since day one. Subverting any and all  standard genre boundaries once again, their latest offering confidently continues that  tradition. These five musical soulmates —Robbie Wulfsohn [vocals], Jon Becker [guitar],  Sampson Hellerman [drums], Calvin Barthel [trombone], and Nadav Shapira [bass]— once again incite listeners to move on their full-length debut, Joy In The Wild Unknown. “What we make is music you can dance to,” affirms Robbie. “We’re drawn to the peak of  a song—the emotional catharsis when everything comes out. It’s all about reaching that  moment. The revelation comes back to us when bodies shake with joy.” “Every time we play, something unique happens,” adds Jon. “You’ll never see the same  show twice. We want to bring that unexpected element into the pop sphere.” Ripe brings the swagger of funk filtered through a rock anthem, a musical journey that  somehow gets as stuck in your head as your favorite pop banger. Following their debut collection  of songs, Produce The Juice EP, the 2015 Hey Hello EP yielded fan favorites “Goon Squad,”  which clocked over 4 million Spotify streams. The band then raised the stakes with their  debut album, Joy In The Wild Unknown, which represented a creative journey as Ripe  became a national presence. Over the course of twelve songs, it finds the elusive sweet spot between jaw-dropping  technicality and airtight songcraft as Ripe collectively kick off a fresh, focused, and fiery  next phase. Averaging over 250K monthly listeners on Spotify, the group landed looks  from the likes of WXPN, Huffington Post, Verge Campus, Boston Globe and Hype Machine love  from sites like Ear to the Ground and Indie Obsessive. Along the way, they also hit the stage  at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Firefly, McDowell Mtn Music Festival, SweetWater, Bottlerock, Electric Forest, Levitate, High Sierra, LaureLive, Sea.Hear.Now and Summer Camp. The common thread would always be the translation of their individual interplay to their  audience, one that Ripe views as not just fans, but old and new friends; an extended  family that is rapidly growing as their sound spreads and their world deepens.
