Event Details

Boogie on down to Lee Hill tonight for some live tunes by Scupanon Duo!

About the Band:

Scupanon’s unique musical style has been described as everything from Orchestral to Acoustic Punk. Singer-songwriter Rob Roper began playing his original songs on the Colorado Front Range in 2006. Violinist Paul Ermisch began accompanying him in 2010. Percussionist Sam Caston joined the band in 2014. At that point, Roper decided to give this collection of musicians a name. Caston suggested “Scupanon”, a wild grape from his and Roper’s home state of Mississippi.

Caston moved to Fort Collins, Colorado in 2015 but the name stuck. Janet Lipson joined in 2017 to add harmony vocals. Ermisch left the band in 2019 and was replaced by Diamond Jim Hewitt, who plays fiddle, mandolin and mandola.

Jon Solomon of the Westword, reviewing Roper’s 2011 CD “Misfit,” describes him as “…a guy with some sharp songwriting skills and a knack for penning witty lyrics.” Tim Wenger of the Colorado Music Buzz said of Roper’s 2012 CD, “The Other Side of Nowhere” (in which Ermisch was featured), “His music sounds like what you would hear in a small high-country café, there are touches of country as well as some faster paced rock riffs that stand out at just the right times.”
