The Capitol Theatre will host a night of psychedelia, funk, and pop when Ripe and Juice take the stage on Saturday, December 16.
Ripe is a seven-piece powerhouse band from Boston that honors the past while recreating the future. Drawing from their influences of the early funk and psychedelic movements, as well as from today’s popular artists, Ripe creates an earthshaking sound each time they take the stage. The band recently released their second EP entitled, Hey Hello, and are nearing the completion of their upcoming full length album. The band is currently crowdfunding their full-length release with bundle packs and exclusive content available for contributors on their PledgeMusic page. Ripe is rolling into The Cap after a very successful performance headlining the Pamnation Party stage at this year’s Pleasantville Music Festival.
Opening the night is Juice, an eight piece band that also hails from Boston. Drawing inspiration from all ends of the spectrum, from the Dave Matthews Band to Kanye West, Juice has created a truly unique sound that needs to be seen firsthand. Since forming in Boston College in 2014, Juice has been on the rise selling out venues like Brighton Music Hall, Rockwood Music Hall, and the Mercury Lounge, and have opened for big name acts like DNCE and Ludacris. Over the past few years, Juice has sold out several shows at Garcia’s, The Capitol Theatre’s adjacent venue, and they are now graduating to The Cap stage on this jam-packed night.

About The Capitol Theatre:
Designed by celebrated architect Thomas Lamb in 1926 and listed in The National Register of Historic Places, the theatre is located approximately 30 miles from NYC, conveniently accessible by I-95 and only one block from the Port Chester Metro North train station. Celebrating its 90th anniversary, the 1,835-capacity theatre has hosted concerts by the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Derek and the Dominos, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Santana, Black Sabbath, Iggy Pop, and many more. Following a transformative renovation under the guidance of entrepreneur Peter Shapiro (three Brooklyn Bowls, theLockn' Festival, the "Fare Thee Well" Grateful Dead stadium shows, music magazine Relix, FANS), the theatre reopened as a rock palace on Sep 4, 2012, with a performance by Bob Dylan and has since hosted everyone from Al Green and My Morning Jacket to Sleigh Bells and Morrissey. The New York Times raved, "a rock theater that looks and sounds as good as the Capitol is something to celebrate," while Billboard agreed that "the lavishly decorated theater -- filled with mirrors, chandeliers and painstakingly restored detail -- looks absolutely stunning, and sounds even better."
