Chris Chew Will Sit Out the North Mississippi Allstars’ Thanksgiving Leftovers Show
As previously reported, North Mississippi Allstars will host their annual Thanksgiving Leftovers show at Memphis, TN’s Minglewood Hall on Friday, November 23. Though longtime NMA bassist Chris Chew was originally confirmed to join his band at the event, the bassist has pulled out of the show due to a scheduling conflict. Instead, Lightnin’ Malcolm and Alvin Youngblood Hart will both join North Mississippi Allstars during the night. Chew took a hiatus from the Allstars earlier this year but has joined them on special occasions throughout 2012 after he survived a diabetic coma in June.
In addition, representatives from the Mid-South Food Bank will be on hand collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items for the hungry.
