First Ryan Humbert Band show in 19 months and only show in 2018! Outdoor Pavilion Show — Limited tickets available!
Tuesday, September 18, 2018 – 8:00 PM Gervasi Vineyard Pavilion
1700 55th St NE, Canton, OH 44721
Join Gervasi Vineyard and award-winning singer-songwriter Ryan Humbert for a special evening celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Humbert’s “Old Souls, New Shoes” album on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 8:00 PM.
This intimate show will take place in the beautiful Gervasi Vineyard lakeside pavilion and will feature Humbert backed by a 10-piece band, including longtime bandmates Emily Bates, Ben Evans, Erin Vaughn, Brian Poston, Brian Piper and Brandon Covey — along with a string quartet led by Michael Houff.
This is the first Ryan Humbert Band show in 19 months, and the only one in 2018. The band will perform the “Old Souls, New Shoes” album in its entirety for the first time ever, along with a few choice cuts from Humbert’s original music catalog.
The “Old Souls, New Shoes” album was recorded in Nashville in 2008 with producer Eli “Lij” Shaw, and features members of Third Eye Blind, The Counting Crows, The Black Crowes, The Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow’s band, the Nashville Opera and more.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this album, a newly remastered deluxe edition will be available beginning that evening, with new artwork and six bonus tracks — including original demos, a never-before-heard album outtake, a remix of “Sideways” and a newly recorded version of the track “People Standing Still.”
Ticket prices are $19 for general admission and $39 for a deluxe ticket, which includes a reserved seat, a copy of the Deluxe Edition album, a glass of wine and a Q&A with the band from 6 to 7 PM before the show. General admission seating is first come, first served. Seating is limited to around 300 seats, so advance tickets are highly recommended. Tickets are available online at www.gervasivineyard.com. For more information, call 330-497-1000.
