Joel Cummins

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.

Kyle Hollingsworth and Joel Cummins have been trying to do collaborative shows for years and it's finally happening this month. The two keyboardists took turns taking fan requests to play the other's songs from the SCI and UM catalogs.

Catch them on a few select nights in Colorado next week!

Decades ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music.  With a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent deftly able to contribute, collaborate, compose, and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop.

Joel Cummins and Kris Myers from Umphrey's McGee will combine forces with Marcus Rezak on Friday, October 1st for an "after hours" gig proceeding the Afterburner Music Festival in Huntington Beach, Ca at My Place Sports Bar & Grill.
