The Gem & Jam Festival took place last weekend in Tucson, AZ and the high-energy band Spafford helped close out a fantastic night one on Friday.  Spafford came out running hot with the original opener "Double Time" which had the festival crowd ready to fire on all cylinders.  The set was full blast after that and ended with a killer cover of "Punk" by Ferry Corsten sandwiched in between Spafford's hit song "Leave the Light On."  Spafford brought out a real treat for the encore with a performance of "Peaches" by The Presidents of the United States of America directly into the raucous favorite "Weasel" to end the show.

This was Spafford's first time back to the Gem & Jam Festival lineup since 2016.  The Gem & Jam Festival is a vibrant celebration that fuses live music, stunning visuals, and the enchanting world of gem and mineral artistry. Held annually, this festival is a unique convergence of diverse artistic expressions, from cutting-edge musical performances to captivating displays of gem and mineral art. The festival not only showcases top-tier musical acts spanning various genres but also provides a platform for artists and enthusiasts to explore the intricate beauty of gemstones and minerals.

Spafford is headed out to Colorado next for their SpaffSki Tour with residencies in both Steamboat Springs and Crested Butte later this month.  Spafford continues to stream their shows live, making their music accessible to fans worldwide as they did for every show during their 2024 Winter Tour.
