Ryan Shupe brings Christmas to Peery’s Egyptian
OGDEN — Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband will perform a Christmas concert here next week.
The Utah-born-and-bred band, which has a strong local following and had a national hit in the mid-2000s with “Dream Big,” will perform at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd.
The family-friendly show will feature a wide range of musical styles — from the calypso-influenced “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer” to the bluegrass rock of “Jingle Bells.”
The concert will also feature a seasonal twist to some of Shupe’s more popular tunes, with “The Corndog Song” becoming “The Eggnog Song,” and a cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” morphs into “The Grinch Went Down to Whoville.”
The program will also include some of Shupe’s original tunes that celebrate the more spiritual side of the holiday — “The Gift” and “The Night That Christ Was Born” — along with traditional songs like “Carol of the Bells” and a “Silent Night” sing-along.
Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors and military, and $10 for children age 12 and younger.
Tickets are available through www.smithstix.com or 801-689-8700.
