A Benefit for City Harvest Ft. Capitalist Pig
City Harvest helped start the food rescue movement in 1982 when a group of New Yorkers saw that New York City had an abundance of excess food even while a large number of its residents struggled to feed themselves and their families. We recognized the practical purpose that this surplus food could serve if directed to New Yorkers who needed it, filling the plates of the working mom who had trouble making ends meet at month’s end, the senior in the apartment upstairs living on a fixed income, or the family around the corner coping with a large and unexpected medical bill.

Depending on whom you ask, the original vision of the band began during impromptu jam sessions at New Orleans's Jazz Fest combined with acoustic shows in the basements of some of the most infamous bars in New York City. Originally created as a result of the music and songwriting talents of guitarist Richie Chuang and harp player Jason Levine, the soulful sound of Jason's harmonica inspired by the streets of the French Quarter, combined with the duo's lyrical genius evoked a sentiment that could not be ignored. Shortly after the duo got together, drummer Jeff Epstein and vocalist Dan Levine jumped into the scene and the quartet began playing acoustic gigs at small venues throughout New York City. With the addition of guitarist Chris Yarmy and bassist Nick Szatmari , the music quickly progressed from the poetic, lyrical, quality found in original blues music to a rhythmic, blues rock edge with the energy of a jam band that it is today
