It’s the time of year where family and friends get together for a feast, football and good times. It’s also the time for what’s becoming a new tradition: The Last Bison’s Gathering.
Now in it’s third year, The Last Bison will takeover The NorVa Saturday, November 29 for an evening of good music and good will. Presented by 96X, The Gathering is a musical fundraiser for The Foodbank of Southeastern Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore that will feature The Last Bison along with special guests Esbern Snare and Swear and Shake. Each concert goer should bring a non-perishable food item for The Foodbank. You can also make a contribution online at this link. This is an important cause as The Foodbank provides canned, fresh, frozen goods to thousands of individuals and this time is a time when The Foodbank runs low of items in their pantry. Recently, The Last Bison held a volunteer night there where the band and fans sorted 4000 lbs of food and packaged over 300 backpacks with food to distribute as part of The Foodbank’s BackPack Program.
The Last Bison just got back from their east coast tour in support of their latest record, VA. The record is simply superb as well as their current live show. They have added a drum kit and Amos slaps on the electric bass – where it adds a great dynamic to their folkestral tunes of Quill that we love. I saw their show in Philadelphia last month and it was nothing short of excellent. Bottom Line: Go to the show!
Joining them are Esbern Snare, who appeared on Live Music Friday earlier this year and released their debut record, A Violent Peace. A great band with an intense sound and song craftsmanship that doesn’t leave your head for awhile. Also joining the bill is New York Americana band, Swear and Shake. This band is another great gem with very catchy tunes. Check out their video below.
This is going to be a great night of music for a great cause. Like I said before, go the show! You can get your tickets now by clicking on this link.
