Spafford Shares Stage with Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee during Sold Out SpaffSki Run

Spafford closed out a stellar sold out run of shows at the Old Town Pub last week in Steamboat Springs, CO.  On Saturday, the band had a special sit-in performance with Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee for the cover of the 2000's billboard hit "Take a Picture" by Filter.  This song featured drummer Nick Tkachyk on the vocals, while Cummins and Spafford's keyboardist Cory Schechtman went tag team on the keys.

This first leg of the SpaffSki tour is in the books and each show was yet another highlight in Spafford's continued sonic transformation.  The first two months of 2024 have already brought new material, new covers, old favorites, and of course countless improvisational jams.  The sound of Spafford is comfortable and exciting all at the same time, or as drummer Tkachyk described it, "The sound of Spafford is organic and unobstructed. Creative, energetic, rhythmic and trance oriented, almost hypnotic in the way we improvise."
