Doe Bay artist spotlight: Bison

Along with all of the local bands playing Doe Bay Fest this year there are also some bands from out of the area that are traveling a long way to be part of the festival. One of those is Virginia band Bison. I chatted with Bison back in February and they told me then that they had high hopes of playing Doe Bay Fest.

Well, now that the lineup is out and they made it I thought it would be good to touch base with Bison and get their reaction. This quote is one of the best things any band has ever said to me:

“From the birthplace of our nation, we get to follow the paths of our forefathers, and trace the trails of the pioneers, heading west to a land of promise to share the company of songsters and merry makers. This is the kind of stuff we dream of! We are honored to represent the Mother Of States to the majestic Pacific Northwest!”

How epic is that?

I really like this band and can’t wait to see them play out at Doe Bay. I also know they are trying to get some Seattle shows lined up while they are out here. More on that as stuff comes together. For now, enjoy their song “Switzerland.”
