WEBSTER - Indian Ranch unveiled its 75th Anniversary Season and announced a multi-year partnership with Mike’s Hard Lemonade to present the Mike’s Hard Lemonade Summer Concert Series in Webster.
Five new shows have been added to 75th Anniversary Season including Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives on July 31, Tower of Power on August 15, Marc Martel on September 4, Kip Moore on September 26, and 38 Special on October 9 as part of the Mike’s Hard Lemonade Summer Concert Series. Tickets for these shows are on sale now.
“Mike’s Hard Lemonade is excited to be the presenting sponsor of Indian Ranch live music venue. In their rich 75 year history, they have brought music, good times, and a friendly atmosphere to Massachusetts. We are optimistic that our partnership will only elevate the happiness this venue brings to our consumers, and we can’t wait to see you at a show in the near future,”said Doug Bailey, Mike’s Hard Lemonade Regional Marketing Manager - Northeast.
In 1946, a local Native American promoter created a humble resort called Indian Ranch. He booked live entertainment which initially consisted of vaudeville acts, plays and hillbilly music.
The stage was taken from a showboat and patrons sat on wooden logs. In the 1950s and 60s, entertainment included well-known TV personalities such as Rex Trailer and Bozo the Clown. In the 1970s, it started to focus on nationally known country music artists, later expanding its current repertoire of country, classic rock, pop, roots rock, blues, and acoustic music.
Over time the property was developed into a seasonal campground, a function hall was added for banquets and weddings, the Indian Princess was acquired for boat cruises, and most recently, Samuel Slater’s Restaurant opened its doors in summer 2018.
The 3000-capacity venue offers music lovers a chance to see some of the greatest country, classic rock and pop bands steps from Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg. Nestled between pine trees, the amphitheater offers the ability to see the stage from anywhere in the audience.
“The 75th anniversary season will be very special. We’re excited to get back to presenting live music and welcome Mike’s Hard Lemonade to the Indian Ranch family for the upcoming concert seasons,” said Suzette Coppola, president of Indian Ranch. “Indian Ranch has been a family business since it opened over seven decades ago. We have hosted country legends like Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Charlie Daniels who played here 27 times. Indian Ranch has also been the launching pad for emerging country artists working their way to stardom including Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, LeAnn Rimes, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, and Blake Shelton. In recent years, we’ve added rock and pop artists to the lineups including acts like Barenaked Ladies, Huey Lewis, Pat Benatar and fan favorites like The Mavericks and Get The Led Out. It’s only fitting that we will be reopening with one of our biggest schedules ever.”
The Mike’s Hard Lemonade Summer Concert Series at Indian Ranch will kick off with local showcases featuring Jediah with Brevity on May 1, and Mychael David on May 8. The season continues with, Chris Janson on July 10, Get the Led Out on July 24, Ziggy Marley on July 25, Jamey Johnson August 1, Justin Moore August 7, Grand Funk Railroad on August 8, ABBA The Concert on August 13, Yacht Rock Revue on August 21, Foreigner on August 26, Josh Turner on August 28, Local Countryfest on September 11, The Mavericks on September 12, Los Lobos on September 18, George Thorogood & The Destroyers on September 19, and the Pike Hair Fest on September 25.
