Bears on the Run

Gay men's traveling music & comedy troupe makes a stop in Buffalo on its spring Northeast tour. Starring Bobaloo, Elijah Black, Shannon Grady, Kendall, & Matthew Temple.

Over the last few years, outlets like Bear Radio Network, Bearapalooza, and WoobieBearMusic—along with a host of supportive bear runs, bars, and podcasts—have given Bear musicians, songwriters, and performers a place to share their talents. Following up on their successful first-ever fall 2007 tour of the midwest, south, and southwest, five BOTR performers will once again head out in a van for their first-ever northeast tour, this time taking them to Toronto, Buffalo, Albany, Provincetown, Boston, Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia, & NYC.

The tour is called BEARS ON THE RUN and showcases the talents of Bobaloo (a comedian from L.A.), Kendall (a songwriter/performance artist from Buffalo NY), Matthew Temple (a folksinger/songwriter from Nashville, T.N.), Elijah Black (a rock singer/songwriter from Akron, OH), and Shannon Grady (a singer/songwriter from Minneapolis, MN). Along for the ride will be two videographers who will capture performances as well as life backstage and on the road to be edited into a documentary.

The tour's founder Shannon Grady (a singer and co-host of the popular podcast bTALK) hopes that the tour will grow and open up doors for other Bear artists and find new audiences for their work.
