Concert on the Slopes

You’ve worked hard and played hard all day and now it’s time to settle down and enjoy the evening.  

There’s no better place to do that than the popular Concert on the Slope series at Sapphire Valley Resort.  Held every month during the season these concerts offer ticket-holders the chance to sit back and enjoy some of the most energetic live music around.

On August 16 you’ll hear The Rave-Ons,  made up of cast members from the national tour of the hit musical, “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story.”  

The Rave-Ons are a high energy rockabilly band originally formed to revitalize the music of Buddy Holly and the Crickets.  They produce and star in two different Buddy Holly tribute shows and have over 100 50’s rockabilly tunes in their repertoire, as well as some original tunes.

The Rave-Ons are led by Todd Meredith, who has performed in 18 separate productions of the musical as Buddy Holly and in tribute concerts for the past seven years.  He’s joined by Bill Morey on the upright bass, Jon Rossi on drums, and Jeremy Renner on guitar.  They have played together all over the country, delighting audiences in New York City, Reno, Memphis, Nashville, Jacksonville, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, and even Buddy Holly’s hometown of Lubbock, Texas. Each and every member of the Rave-Ons embodies the youthful energy of the The Crickets and gives their shows unmatched power and exuberance.

Mix the music of The Rave-Ons with the stunning setting atop the Sapphire Valley Ski Slopes and your evening is complete.  All concerts are held at 7:00 P.M. and tickets are $20 per person.  Call ahead for reserved seating and be sure to bring a blanket or chairs.  For tickets and directions call (828) 743-7663.
