Chris Chew Will Join North Mississippi Allstars for Thanksgiving Leftovers Show

North Mississippi Allstars have confirmed a Thanksgiving weekend show. The trio’s Thanksgiving Leftovers performance will take place at Memphis, TN’s Minglewood Hall on November 23. NMA bassist Chris Chew, who took a hiatus from the band earlier this year and was later hospitalized in a diabetic coma, will perform with the group throughout the night. According to the band, this will be Chew’s “first full-length performance in Memphis” since Chew came out of the coma.

Representatives from the Mid-South Food Bank will be on hand collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items for the hungry. The first 100 people to bring a canned food or non-perishable item to the show and receive a limited edition poster commemorating the night, autographed by the band.

Will it be Chris’ first show back overall, or just his first back in Memphis? It would be interesting to know if he’ll be with the band for any of the other Fall dates, I have not seen any announcements about this yet (and might just have missed it).

Chris, It sounds like you have come a long way since your return home from out west. Glad to hear that you are continuing to get better and that your stamina is returning. I sure wish Memphis was a whole lot closer to Oregon. Have a great show!
