POP: Power Pop, ROCK: Progressive Rock
Splice Dave Matthews with strong female vocals and the sound would be pure Ripe, a NYC-based progressive pop/rock band.
In the words of an industry professional: "You don''t know what to do first at a Ripe show, look at the 3 beauties, listen to the awesome musicians, or get absorbed in the lush vocal harmonies." Ripe''s sound tapestry derives from sources as diverse as Santana, Dido, Albeniz, Elton John, Paula Cole and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
"We built Ripe to explore songwriting, but as we began to play out more and more, things solidified and we became a true band. Ripe has been together since November 2001, and it''s the best 3 years of my life", says singer Christa McNamee. The seven-piece band consists of three vocalists, Christa McNamee, Leia Thompson and Jessica Grant, keyboardist/band leader Dan Bar Hava, guitarist Seth Himmelhoch, bassist Vinnie Raniolo, and drummer Rich Zukor.
Ripe provides pure vocal and musical fun, catchy hooks and real substance. Live show highlights include: a haunting 3-part a capella ballad, a driving world/fusion instrumental, and a lush pop/tribal love song with a classical quote worthy of a Carnegie Hall performance.
Ripe credits include headlining the NCAA Sweet Sixteen 2002 games in Syracuse, a live appearance on CBS regional TV, singing the National Anthem for the Brooklyn Cyclones opening game and 4th of July weekend game at Key Span Park, a showcase at the Hoboken Arts and Music festival, 6 #1 hits on https://www.tradebit.com top 40 charts, guest-starring at the "Bergen County Teen Talent Finals", a televised showcase on LT1 TV, national and international airplay and numerous airing of our music video, "Don''t Go Back" on several TV stations.
