UW Homecoming Dance Features Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts

October 7, 2015

This year’s annual University of Wyoming Homecoming dance will feature a performance from Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts Wednesday, Oct. 14, in the Wyoming Union Ballroom. The event will begin at 8 p.m. with free country swing dance lessons, followed by live music at 9 p.m.

Sponsored by the Student Activities Council and Cowboy Country Swing Club, this event is free and open to UW students.

Awarded the “Best Country Band, 2015” from the Westword Music Showcase Awards, Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts have previously performed at the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, A Taste of Colorado and at a Colorado Rockies game. The band also performed with Gilby Glarke, former rhythm guitarist for Guns N’ Roses, at the 75th annual Sturgis Rally this past summer.

Formed in 2013, the group is a Denver-based, six-member band that takes inspiration for its sound from other country stars such as Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. The band features Chrys on vocals and guitar; Bradley Weaver on vocals and lap steel; Paul “Prom King” Lanier on bass; Vic Stauffenberg on drums; Laura Quam on violin and fiddle; and Josh Skelton on vocals and guitar.
