THE LAST SUPPER
For those with an appetite for substance and deft musical style, The Last Supper delivers. Bassist Mike Perkins and drummer Mauro Scatozza, provide a solid foundation for Dan Shwetz’s searing vocals and Peter Walker’s weaving guitar.
Currently based out of Smiths Falls, Ontario, the band was founded by Dan Shwetz and Peter Walker in 1995 while attending the University of Western Ontario, The Last Supper was a name chosen to symbolize a gathering of friends. After graduation, the band decided they wanted to travel, using their music as the vehicle. The band spent time in Los Angeles, played the college circuit throughout Canada and the U.S. and released its first album Beginning of the End in 1996. The band has since released 4 albums, having sold thousands of copies, and has received commercial radio play in Canada, UK, The Netherlands, USA, Jordan, Egypt and South Africa.
The Last Supper has been busy working on their new album, and are currently adding final touches with the help of producer and recording engineer Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, INXS, The Cult, Paul McCartney) . The group has played more than 800 live shows across four continents, and performed with acts including Iron Maiden, Joe Cocker, Peter Frampton, Thin Lizzy, Our Lady Peace, Slash’s Snakepit, The Tea Party, Ministry, and Queensryche. They have appeared at numerous famous rock clubs and European festivals including the Milkweg in Amsterdam, House of Blues (New Orleans), the Whiskey-A-Go-Go, Roxy (L.A), Download Festival (UK), and BosPop (NL). Among the highlights of their international shows was a stadium benefit concert in Turkey in 2000, and a date in front of the Great Pyramids in Egypt in December 2010. The Last Supper was picked as one of the best 20 new bands on the planet for 2006 by Classic Rock Magazine from the U.K., and has been included on a compilation CD which was distributed by the magazine.
The band has also become part of a reality television show called Band Without Borders.
