RIPPLE will host a special ONE DAY GRATEFUL DEAD/ROCK-N-ROLL ART SHOW on Saturday February 8th from 12-6 pm with RICHARD BIFFLE, Rock and Fantasy Artist, and ROBBI COHN, Live Music Photographer. This special art exhibit will take place in the beautiful gallery space two doors down from us on the corner of Market Street and Salem Ave. This DUAL Show and Signing will also feature a collection of oil paintings that Richard has been working on that are truly amazing. And Robbi will be showing some of her iconic Grateful Dead images from the last 30 years as well as her more current work!

“Renowned artist Richard Biffle was inspired by album art as a youth and later began his career by selling art out of his van while following The Grateful Dead around the country. Now, more than 20 years later, most of his works have sold out and are in high demand. Biffle utilizes a variety of mediums including oils, acrylics, pastels, and computers. He is most well known for his poster art, working with bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Dead, The Other Ones, Carlos Santana, The Black Crowes, Widespread Panic, Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Rat Dog, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes, Yonder Mountain, Hot Tuna, Allman Brothers, CSN&Y, Ekoostik Hookah, Paul Simon, Deep Purple, Blues Traveler, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Cheap Trick, The Joplin Estate, Widespread Panic, The Jimi Hendrix Estate, SOJA, Dark Star Orchestra, YMSB, Mickey Hart, Bruce Hornsby, Loggins and Messina, Telluride, Brothers of a Feather, Tim Reynolds, Little Feat and more including Marvel Comics. “I’ve had a lot of fun in the rock ‘n’ roll business,” Biffle said. “It’s a seedy business and it can get nasty, but it’s the nature of the beast. It has been a fascinating world.”To learn more on the works of Richard Biffle visit:http://www.olcrowstudio.com/

“Robbi Cohn has been photographing musicians since 1984, specializing in images of the Grateful Dead. Her body of work is extensive and prolific and includes many other artists besides the Dead: Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, Rolling Stones, Bruce Hornsby, Sheryl Crow and hundreds of other performers. Many of her images are iconic and have appeared across the gamut of musical art. Robbi’s work has appeared in Deadbase, Relix Magazine and a myriad of other media. She has done CD work for Bruce Hornsby, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Steve Winwood. Her images have been used for officially released stamps from Mongolia and Montserrat and have also appeared on J Garcia merchandise hangtags. She was the first photographer to have ever been licensed by the Grateful Dead and is the only photographer who still retains licensing. Robbi’s primary motivation has been to “preserve the memories” and she continues to capture images from the music she so dearly loves. Music is Robbi’s rasison d’etre! We hope you enjoy these one of a kind slices of musical history!” – via Robbi’s Site http://www.deadimages.com/

a TASTE-ful Meeting with Dangermuffin brought to you by Ripple and Starr Hill Brewery

danger-muffin starr hill banner

Join us THIS COMING FRIDAY 8-30-13 from 7-8pm at Ripple Roanoke for a fun-tastic Meet and Greet with DANGERMUFFIN paired with a BEER TASTING from Starr Hill Brewery. Incredible Music, Dank Beer, and some genuine One-On-One Conversation … to me it doesn’t get any better than this!

“Dangermuffin embodies a curious paradox. The themes found within their striking new collection, Olly Oxen Free, sum up that juxtaposition.

This Folly Beach, S.C.-based trio are clearly at peace with themselves and their career, while keeping up a constant pursuit of truth. The seeds they’ve planted at major festivals around the nation grow as fast as the mileage on their odometer, yet they dream and sing of home with a yearning passion. Most strikingly, the band’s musical execution remains refreshingly simple, belying a staggering lyrical and thematic depth behind each individual song.”  -   http://dangermuffinmusic.com/

 

Starr Hill’s beers can be found throughout the mid-Atlantic and southeast United States. The brewery has won several awards for its beer, in particular the Dark Starr Stout which is the most decorated stout in the American craft brewing scene. In referring to their most recent release, Grateful Pale Ale, Mark Thompson (Founder/Master Brewer) says “The name springs from our brand’s humbleness and our love of the music culture.”
