“When you got a hankering for some retro roots rock energy, Lara Hope has your remedy…”  –American Songwriter–

We are delighted to welcome Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones to The Stissing Center stage, all the way from Kingston, New York.

The Ark-Tones are:
Matt Goldpaugh – Upright Bass & Vocals
Eddie Rion – Lead Guitar & Vocals
Jeremy Boniello – Drums & Vocals

“I would say we are a new take on an old sound. It’s been described as ‘pan-americana’ which means we use many areas of early rock and roots music as a creative launchpad. Where it goes from there is anyone’s guess, because while we appreciate old music, we don’t want to write songs that have already been written,” says Lara Hope about her music.

Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones recently released their 3rd studio album in June 2021, the all-original “Here To Tell The Tale”, which has been getting rave reviews. They’ve spent much of the past few years on the road, both in Europe, and in the US, and had the pleasure of touring with some of their musical heroes, including a 6 week national tour with The Brian Setzer Orchestra, and regional tours with The Blasters, and the Reverend Horton Heat. The band has also had the privilege of supporting some of the greats, including Joan Jett, Tiger Army, Gary US Bonds, Dale Watson, Big Sandy, Wayne Hancock, The 5678’s, Jay Leno, and America, and has performed at at a variety of national festivals including Viva Las Vegas, Ink n Iron, and The Nashville Boogie. Most recently, they were invited to perform at the original site of the Woodstock Festival, Bethel Woods, for the 50th anniversary celebration, and played the same day as Ringo Starr! Matt and Lara also play as a duo, “The Gold Hope Duo”, and recently self-released a very topical album called “Songs In The Key Of Quarantine”, which is now available worldwide.

All tickets are general admission and all seats are fabulous. If you want to get out of your seat to dance, please do!!
