We spoke with Ben Hardesty and his father (as well as pastor) Dan Hardesty of The Last Bison before their theatrical performance at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg as part of The Wild Honey Pie showcase there. Turns out the Hardesty family is home-schooled, which allowed Ben to pursue Victorian history which translated into a complete wardrobe for his family and band.
