Brookmere Fall Tour


Austin Rife has 4 shows scheduled this late summer and fall with the Brookmere Winery in Abbottstown, PA.  The venue and AR have had a long-lasting relationship that has spanned three years and is going strong as ever.  “I remember when this place first started out and we had one room and about 15 people in Brookmere.  Today, they have a huge barn and many nights the place is packed.  This venue holds a place in our hearts because its really where Denny and I’s live show started.  We went from like 15 family members to as much as 80.  It’s crazy to see how it has grown.”  Rife will play at Brookmere July 31st, September 25th, October 23rd, November 26th, and December 27th.  All shows start at 7 PM.  See you there!

Moose Park Kix Pre Show

Gettysburg, PA – Austin Rife opened up for Kix this weekend at Moose Park in Gettysburg, PA.  Rife said “It was cool to play with Uncle Denny on a $35,000 stage with sound guys and lights.  We don’t get a chance to do that too often so when we get the chance to work with high end professionals, we take it.  It was a neat setup and we’ll do it again any time.  I have to thank Chris Brown from the Moose for letting me join this lineup. ”  AR will be back in action at his hometown venue, the Brookmere Winery on July 31st.  See you there.

Rain or Shine

Gettysburg, PA – Austin Rife played at the Adam’s Electric 75th Anniversary Banquet at the Gettysburg High School this past weekend.  Although heavy rain forced the event to go indoors, people came out by the hundreds to learn about the company’s diverse history and to eat lunch.  Rife was invited to play in the auditorium and gladly agreed.  Austin was pleased with the whole event, “We’ve been working on this event for 4 months and although it rained, it was cool for it to come together as good as it did.  This is a great company and they treated me really well.  I’m not used to people carrying my stuff or putting me to the front of the line for lunch.  The employees of Adam’s Electric were a joy to partner with.”  Rife will be back on stage in Gettysburg at Moose Park for the Kix Pre Show on July 10th.
