The Sweetwater County Concert Association announces the concert series for the 2021-22 season.
They are currently holding their annual membership campaign.
The Sweetwater County Concert Association is a local non-profit group whose mission is to bring the best in live professional entertainment to the residents of Sweetwater County at the lowest cost possible. SCCA offers guaranteed seats for the four concert series to members of the Association for one low membership fee. Because of this, county residents have the opportunity to experience these family-friendly performances at local venues without the added cost and inconvenience of long drives or over-night stays. SCCA memberships are completely transferable.
Members of the Association also enjoy reciprocity with the Cheyenne and Craig, Colorado Concert
Associations. This means that SCCA members are able to attend the concerts presented by these
Associations as part of their local membership fee, thus tripling the number of performances available.
The Sweetwater County Concert Association sponsors a local scholarship program that provides music-
related needs, such as instrument rental or repair, purchase of concert attire, etc., for local students.
SCCA also promotes music education by working with Sweetwater BOCES to provide student matinees
and Master Classes whenever possible.

improvisations. For over 20 years, Chipper has brought his odd brand of mayhem to audiences
throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Mexico.
The final concert of the SCCA season will feature husband and wife duo Sundae and Mr. Goessl on
Sunday, April 24, 2022 at the Broadway Theater. This duo puts on a vintage inspired show that blends
blues, swing, country and Latin sounds. Performing hits from the roaring 20’s to modern classics and
originals, Sundae and Mr. Goessl utilize technique, technology and unique instrumentation to give this
little band it’s big band sound. Mr. Goessl’s mesmerizing finger-style guitar dazzles and inspires while
Sundae’s sultry vocal interpretations drip with charm and nostalgia. The celebrated newly-wed couple
has been providing entertainment to music-lovers since 2014, including performing previously in
downtown Rock Springs as part of the “brown bag” summer concert series. This busy duo has done 5
albums, 8 national tours, 2 sponsorships and over 700 shows.
