Creston’s Red Mountain offering Halloween concert

Web Lead

Creston’s up-and-coming hard rock band Red Mountain is performing Oct. 30 at the Snoring Sasquatch.

Red Mountain is Adam Dye (rhythm guitar, synthesizer, lead vocals, tattoos), Micah Snow (lead guitar, backup vocals, beard), Dillon Olfert (bass guitar, backup vocals, fur coat), Neil Ripski (drums, fists of fury) and Jason Deatherage (drums, backup fists of fury).

Red Mountain was formed in October 2013 under the name Beardo by Snow, Olfert and Ripski as a comedy rock and heavy jam band for fun. As time went on, the group started to evolve in lineup, sound and focus, moving from a good way to kill time on Wednesday nights to a genuine creative machine intent on taking the Canadian music scene by storm. Influenced mainly by bands such as Tool, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Rammstein and Alice in Chains, Red Mountain has begun to forge a sound of their own while borrowing influence from the music that has shaped them into the musicians they currently are.

After events leading them to reshape the band from the ground up, Red Mountain has spent the last year reinventing themselves and their sound, leading to their current progressive and industrial tinged grunge. Since then, the band has been gaining steam, playing multiple events around the Creston Valley, and is gearing up to record its first EP sometime this fall.

Red Mountain’s concert at the Snoring Sasquatch will be its first Halloween Spooktacular. Expect a night of frightfully good music, and a scary good time. Costumes are mandatory (if you don’t have a costume you’ll still be allowed in, but rest assured that the band will be silently disappointed).

Tickets are available at Black Bear Books, Buffalo Trails Coffee House and Kingfisher Used Books.
