Digging back into their catalog, Leftover Salmon is excited to celebrate fifteen years of one of their most memorable recordings experiences, “The Nashville Sessions”. On September 15th their performance at the Ryman Auditorium will be a one-of-a-kind reunion and a great opportunity for the band to share that special recording experience with the fans in a live setting.
Striking out on your own as a musician after being part of an ensemble is never easy to do, save for the fortunately marketable front men and Beyoncés of the world. Roosevelt Collier is doing his best, and while picking up steam, has never forgotten where he came from and what made him the musician he is today. Forged out of the Pentecostal beliefs surrounding “Sacred Steel,” Roosevelt is both carrier of the torch and genre-hijacking outlaw.
Leftover Salmon featuring Bill Payne of Little Feat played to a large crowd this past weekend on Sunday, April 20th. With the entire city a-lit with activities throughout the day, folks gathered in the streets outside of Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO, while Method Man and Redman performed inside to a packed house. “People around the world are looking at Denver on this day...” said Vince Herman to The Denver Post/ Reverb.
Leftover Salmon is happy to announce additional dates for their 2014 Spring Tour. They are also thrilled that Bill Payne of Little Feat will be joining the band for the majority of the run. Tonight, April 1, LoS plays a second night at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co in Chico before heading to the midwest for a few shows.
If summertime is the only time you make it to a killer music festival, you must not be from Colorado. Us cold-blooded mountain people could care less about below freezing temperatures and blustering blizzards. Live music is the lifeblood of Colorado’s thriving entertainment industry and the people want it all year round. Maybe one year somebody would be brave enough to host a winter camping festival, but for now, we have a few awesome concepts that are making the dead of winter a time to party at desirable festival grounds and see our favorite bands throw down a hootenanny.
Great American Taxi and Vince Herman have decided it is in the best interest of the band and everyone involved to part ways starting in 2014. Vince recently moved to Oregon to settle down and spend more time on his farm, and his other band, Leftover Salmon, have become very active again absorbing much of Herman's time. Great American Taxi has wanted to play more and follow up on the success of their last two albums, which landed them in the top 10
Leftover Salmon is excited to announce their 2014 Spring Tour. In late March, LoS will kick off the tour with two nights at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA, followed by two nights at the Crystal Bay Club in Nevada, an evening at the Belly Up in Solana Beach, and two nights at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico.
One of the greatest qualities of Colorado’s Cajun Slamgrass legends Leftover Salmon is their ability to evolve with sincere versatility. Founding members Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt have taken the band to higher creative peaks, with new material (the fantastic Aquatic Hitchhiker release) and welcoming great musicians in that really understand how to play their demanding style while also kicking back and parting with their crowd.
