Rattlesnake Ridge show update: Fall shows canceled due to COVID

The Rattlesnake Ridge Community Center decided last week to push their opening show back from the September date to an October date. Because of surging COVID-19 cases, the club said, the Hammertowne show scheduled for September 25 would be moved to October. 

It was “tentatively rescheduled for October 23,” community member Gary Jones told the Times after the meeting on Tuesday night. But, he said, if COVID numbers didn’t improve, they might have to cancel. 

“If things don’t improve dramatically, we probably will be down until next spring,” Jones said. 

The spectre of cancellation was confirmed on Sunday when show organizer Chad Gilbert contacted the Times to confirm part of Jones’ concerns. 

“We are canceling our fall shows due to the uptick in COVID cases in the area,” Gilbert said. 

Gilbert couldn’t say if that would include the December Christmas themed show with Don Rigsby, but it did include Hammertowne, and the Larry Sparks show originally scheduled for November.
