UPPER MANAGEMENT MUSIC Bluegrass artist RHONDA VINCENT and her band the RAGE had an interesting show in NEW YORK CITY last night (9/23). The band was out doing normal tourist stuff like shopping yesterday afternoon before their scheduled sound check at JOE’s PUB, set at 4:30p (ET). When the group arrived at the MANHATTAN club, their bus was nowhere in sight, and after calling the driver, learned that he was in an accident in the LINCOLN TUNNEL on his way to the club.
The band had to call friends to try and round up enough instruments for their performance, and luckily they came up with enough, like a GIBSON banjo, MARTIN guitar, and other instruments, all donated from friends.
RHONDA and her band hit the stage for their show dressed in ball caps and shorts, with the designer dress that RHONDA was supposed to wear, still in the bus.
After performing songs from their new CD “Taken,” along with requests from the crowd, the bus, which is coined the MARTHA WHITE BLUEGRASS EXPRESS, showed up. With about 20-minutes left in the show, and RHONDA climbed into her dress created by designer CONSTANCE McCARDLE.
As the crowd was leaving they were all given posters and copies of their new CD as a thank you for their patience. For more on RHONDA & The RAGE visit www.rhondavincent.com.
