The Range (Marty’s Driving Range) will host its first two-night live music event – Granite Meltdown – to open the 2022 summer concert series June 3 and 4 at its revamped outdoor venue, 96 Old Turnpike Road in Mason.

Ten bands will perform, featuring headliners Kung Fu on Friday night and The Ghost of Paul Revere on Saturday night. There will be two stages during Granite Meltdown, an event curated by Cooper Leafe, owner of Upstream Sound & More.

Granite Meltdown will also be the official beer release party for The Range Hoppy Lager, brewed by 603 Brewery. Nicole Ruggiero, owner of The Range, worked with 603 Brewery to create the recipe for the craft beer. The Range Hoppy Lager is part of Positive Legacy’s “Pours for Positive” which is a charitable initiative to streamline nonprofit engagement and community outreach for venues, breweries and craft beverage companies with a goal to make it easy, effective and fun for businesses and their customers to support the causes that matter most to them and their community.

The benefactor for this nonprofit engagement is The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Massachusetts (NAMI Mass). One dollar per can of The Range Hoppy Lager will go toward lifting the voice of mental health in Massachusetts. NAMI was chosen as The Range Hoppy Lager benefactor in memory of Ruggiero’s friend Caryl Leeds. Along with a The Range Hoppy Lager, the venue also serves a wide selection of alcohol from several locations on-site. The Range will share its extended menu this year with onsite barbecue, concert view food truck,vegetarian selections and special sandwiches, burgers and wraps.
