Concert for a Cause Raises Funds to Address Food Insecurity in Massachusetts through The Greater Boston Food Bank
The Strumbellas will headline the 16th annual RiverFeast Concert, scheduled for Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury, MA. The annual benefit event will raise funds for The Greater Boston Food Bank, helping to address issues of food insecurity faced by many across Massachusetts.
Formed in 2008, the Strumbellas are an indie rock band from Canada. Their full-length debut album My Father and the Hunter was nominated for a 2013 Juno Award. Their follow-up album We Still Move on Dance Floors won a 2014 Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year and the band’s song Spirits from their third studio album won the 2017 Juno Award for Single of the Year. The band’s fourth studio album Rattlesnake was released in March 2019.
The event will feature a cocktail hour and a silent auction followed by a harvest-themed buffet dinner. Jason Spooner, a multi-award-winning New England-based songwriter will open the show. All net proceeds will benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. The Greater Boston Food Bank helps feed children and families, veterans, college students, the elderly and working adults in 190 eastern Massachusetts cities and towns.

About 92.5 the River
Music and people — both are best when they aren’t confined by labels. And a radio station that connects the two should be independent, intelligent, and diverse, like the minds of its listeners. At 92.5 the River, we celebrate that diversity every day, playing music that weaves a rock-and-roll tapestry across time and genres. Our playlist includes elements of alternative, acoustic, blues, folk, reggae, and other forms of music. You’ll hear a blend of current releases from today’s artists, your favorites from the ’80s and ’90s, and a few deep album cuts from the ’60s and ’70s. You’ll also hear artists and songs that have never been played on the radio before, because we believe that discovering new music is one of life’s simple joys, and we love to share that joy with our listeners. If your relationship with music runs deep, and you enjoy a playlist that’s just as deep, tune in to 92.5 the River —Boston’s Independent Radio!
