Federal Bison started in 2001 when guitarist Brett McQuiggan and Bassist Dan Porri started jamming in a friends basement, forming a rock trio. One year later the band adopted fiery guitarist Jim Cipollini along with vocalist Gabe Silverman. Former Civil Eyes drummer Adam Barker was soon added, cementing the bands lineup. They now live together in a nondescript East Hampton home, allowing them ample practice time and space to write and rehearse their music. The band currently is playing shows all around New England, and has intentions of starting an East Coast tour.
Federal Bisons goal is to write rock n roll music that is relevant to modern times, while incorporating classic elements. Their music reflects their live performance; high energy, no gimmick rock n roll.
