A few years ago, when we ran our Hockey in the Himalayas project, we had a fundraiser. We were looking for a band to provide entertainment for the night. A friend of mine reached out to a local band and they were happy to perform. I didn’t know any of the band members, but they offered their services free of charge. On top of that, at the end of the night, they donated a portion of the money they made from the sale of their merchandise.
Pretty classy move by a classy group of guys.
The band, The Dead South, were fantastic that night. Since then, they have endured a rigorous tour schedule across Canada and Europe. They are currently reaping the rewards of their hard work (and good music) in the form of a viral video.
Because this song is great and because these guys are great, you should watch their video:
Also, here is a short video of our equipment donation that they helped make happen.
