Live music is back! The Yarmouth Drive-in on Cape Cod will present rock band Ripe in concert Saturday, August 1st. This will be the first major live performance in the state since the lockdown went into effect in March. The Boston-based band will perform live to a crowd gathered in more than 450 cars, all safely able to socially distance from one another. Each ticket will cover one car with up to four people in it, with the option to add additional passengers. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 14th at 1:00 PM and will be available on yarmouthdrivein.com.
“Music is finally back! We are proud to bring live concerts to Massachusetts in a safe and fun way,” said Adam Epstein, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Innovation Arts & Entertainment. “This show is only the beginning. We will have live music, sports, comedy and a few other surprises all summer long.
Blending rock, funk, R&B, jazz, and pop, Boston-based Ripe have won over legions of fans by compelling crowds night after night to get up on their feet and dance. Every performance fans get a unique show as the band improv off one another, creating a unique sound that feeds off the crowd’s energy. Formed in 2011 while the band members were at the Berklee College of Music, Ripe has gone on to garner seven million listeners and more than 40 million streams, has performed at Bonnaroo and the Firefly Festival, and this drive-in show will be the band's first performance since their two night sold-out run at the Boston House of Blues in February.
