WE DIDN'T FORGET TO LET OUR FOLLOWERS IN ON OUR GREAT CONCERT WEEKEND
JUNE 26TH AND JUNE 29TH. WE STARTED THE WEEKEND OFF WITH MAYSA, AND LET ME TELL YOU, SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. HER VELVET VOICE KEPT THE CROWD IN
A PERFECT MELLOW MOOD, BEFORE ENDING THE SHOW WITH ANOLD SCHOOL MEDLEY THAT GOT THE CROWD UP AND MOVING TO THE MUSIC. WE FOLLOWED THAT CONCERT WITH THE RETURN OF THE RIPPINGTONS FEATURING RUSS FREEMAN ON THE 29TH. THIS SHOW WAS LONG AWAITED FROM A GROUP THAT HAD BEEN ON A 2YR HIATUS. ONCE AGAIN THE RIPPINGTONS  HAVE NOT MISSED A BEAT. THEY BROUGHT BACK ONE OF THERE ORIGINALS, SAXOPHONIST BRANDON FIELDS, WHO DID A GREAT JOB FILLING IN FOR JEFF KASHIWA WHO WAS ON TOUR WITH THE SAX PACK. ALL IN ALL A GREAT 2 DAY WEEKEND FOR RIPPITOPEN.COM COMING OFF A BUSY MONTH OF JUNE. HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS FROM OUR WEEKEND. ENJOY!!!!!!!
