First Time

East Berlin, PA – Austin Rife has landed his first Thanksgiving Eve show at the East Berlin VFW.  Playing on Thanksgiving Eve is one of the rarest opportunities for a local musician due to crowds that flock to bars before turkey day.  Some studies show that attendance is actually higher on Thanksgiving Eve at bars/restaurants than on New Years Eve.  So, when Rife a musician of now almost 13 years was asked to play his first Thanksgiving Eve gig, he was… to put it mildly….pretty pumped.  “Tony from the VFW is a great guy.  The board over there consists of some awesome people.   They let us play a gigs on our schedule.  That’s rare.  It was one of those deals where they asked which nights I wanted to play until the end of 2017 and I gently threw the line out for Thanksgiving Eve  just hoping they didn’t have some massive band booked.  They gave it to me and it’s awesome.  I’ve done a fair amount of shows, but never on the biggest night of the year.  Bring it on!”  Rife will be at the East Berlin VFW on Wednesday November 22nd from 8-11PM.  The show will be a public event so non-members are welcome.  Come on out!
