Bishop Gunn is a Rock n’ Roll band from Natchez, MS. But on May 19th, they’re bringing their talents to Shreveport.
Bishop Gunn consists of four band members: Travis McCready, Drew Smithers, Burne Sharp, and Ben Lewis
The Mississippi band recently released a documentary discussing their hometown, their album, and recording in legendary Muscle Shoals.
Bishop Gunn of Natchez, Mississippi, is rooted in the history and sounds of their home and the surrounding Delta, and features a blend of rock and roll, soul and blues. The group consists of vocalist Travis McCready, Drew Smithers on guitar, Ben Lewis on bass and Burne Sharp on drums.
In 2017, the band appeared on Kid Rock’s 8th Annual “Chillin’ the Most Cruise” and was voted the best band on the boat by the “chillers.” The group went on to do commercial film for Southern Comfort in Clarksdale, Mississippi and spent their summer touring. In September, Bishop Gunn took the stage at the Pilgrimage Festival in Franklin, Tennessee alongside artists like Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, Mavis Staples and Gary Clark Jr. The band then played Laid Back Festival dates with Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Jimmie Vaughan, The Gregg Allman Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The show is only $5 but the memories should last a lifetime.
