LauraLea & Tripp Fabulous

Feb. 14-17—KILLINGTON— The Wobbly Barn is serving up more than just steaks. This week, the venue welcomes three bands to keep people dancing and entertained.

On Valentine’s Day, Feb.14, Hamjob! will rock the barn. Hamjob! is a three-piece original hard rock band hailing from the mountains of Vermont, serving up a fuzzy blend of funk, blues, reggae, country/bluegrass, hip hop and metal. With tightly composed tunes paired with the occasional full band improvisation, the band draws its main influence from 90’s era hard rock bands like Primus. This band will make people dance.

LauraLea & Tripp Fabulous take the stage Friday and Saturday, Feb. 16-17. The band is a five-piece, high energy party band that has toured the biggest rooms on the East coast for the past 15 years. From Killington to Key West, and everywhere in between, the band has dazzled audiences at the top clubs, casinos, and concert venues with their unmatched musicianship and talent for throwing a party from the stage. If you find yourself at a Tripp show, you will find yourself at a party – singing along, dancing, losing yourself in the music, and leaving with only one request: one more song!

Big Bang Baby takes the stage Sunday, Feb. 17, and returns again Wednesday, Feb. 20. The band infuses the market with stellar musicianship, unique song selection and relentless stage energy. The members of Big Bang Baby play a collective 19 instruments, all taking turns on lead vocals for a sound that cannot be matched with a rotating show of every member displaying a force of talent on one stage. Led by one of the best front men in the business, the band’s collective energy is contagious, resulting in over 200 shows per year from Vermont to Maryland, with an ever growing venue list as they build their brand nationally. This band is 100 percent live, with no sampling or prerecorded voices, relying on pure human talent. Lead singer Paul “Mooch” Anthony says to expect, “Quality, non-stop energy with new faces, which is important. You have longevity but longevity always needs to be cleansed and renewed all the time, so it becomes new even though the name had longevity. If you constantly reinvent the wheel, it really truly is always a new band. The name stays the same, but the wheel changes.”
