What does Bite Night Support?
The Bite Night Food and Beverage Show is an annual fundraiser for the Sweetwater County Concert Association and assists them in providing top quality professional entertainment at minimal cost. They have been a part of Sweetwater County’s cultural scene for over 75 years. As the price of booking professional artists continues to escalate, the Concert Association depends increasingly upon events such as Bite Night; the Association remains committed to not raising ticket prices if at all possible.
Proceeds from Bite Night also help to fund their local scholarship program. This program benefits local music students needing financial assistance for items such as instrument rental, appropriate concert attire or travel expenses.
Performances the SCCA has sponsored over the years include:
- Shanghai Acrobats
- Dallas Brass
- New York Theater Ballet
- Glenn Miller Orchestra
- Leon Williams
- Vienna Boys Choir
- Ronnie Kole
- Jack Daniel’s Silver Cornet Band
- John Davidson
- A Modern Tribute to ABBA
The Sweetwater County Concert Association is a nonprofit organization affiliated with Sweetwater Board of Cooperative Educational Services (SBOCES). The Concert Association is run by local volunteers and has no paid staff. Their artists are booked through Allied Concert Services in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Many of the touring artists provide assemblies, programs and master classes for students in both school districts and at Western Wyoming Community College in addition to their evening concert.
The final concert for the current season will be:
- Dahal Dunne – Entertainer from County Corke, Ireland – April 27 at Green River
Lincoln Middle School
The 2018-2019 concert series will feature these performances:
- “Those Were the Days” with William Florian, formerly with the New Christy Minstrels
- Black Market Trust – smooth vocals in the style of Sinatra and Bobby Darin with guitar, violin, bass & drums
- Tapestry – tribute to Carole King and her legendary album Tapestry
- 7th Ave – mixed vocal quartet with guitar, piano & tracks
The Sweetwater County Concert Association frequently partners with SBOCES and WWCC in providing educational opportunities to area students. The Association also has reciprocity with the Cheyenne and Craig, Colorado associations. SCCA season tickets are valid at any concert association performances in those two communities. SCCA members may also attend any performance of the Desert Dance Theatre at WWCC as part of the season.
Tickets for all concerts and events are available at the Rock Springs and Green River
Chambers of Commerce and online.
