Spafford

Jam rock heavy hitters Spafford returned to the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY for this first time in almost three years last Friday, January 20, 2023. They brought their new keyboardist Cory Schechtman, from the New Motif, a slate of thick grooves with deep improvisation, and a pair of vibrant covers along for the occasion. Escaper, the jamtronica inspired quartet from Brooklyn, NY, provided their support.

Spafford closed out a massive 2022 campaign with two nights in their hometown of Phoenix, AZ.

These were the final shows with keyboardist Andrew “Red” Johnson, who concluded his tenure with the band after an amazing 11 year run.

Night 1 Highlights: Former Spafford drummer Cam LaForest joined the band for nearly the entire show on 12/30. Opened with a 21-minute “Comfortable”. They played “Simon & Lilly” with just Cameron before Nick came back for the rest of the show. Fiery “Whipping Post” to close the first set.

Following the release of their 4th studio album, Simple Mysteries, Spafford polished off a three-day run in Colorado headlining shows in Boulder (11/3), Fort Collins (11/4) and Denver (11/5).

The Sweetwater 420 Festival in Atlanta, Ga continued into the third day with a high octane line up and the largest crowd the festival has ever seen. It was difficult moving around at times given the huge crowd, though nonetheless very enjoyable and full of southern hospitality. The music was anchored by The Trey Anastasio Band, Umphrey's McGee and Goose.

The Sweetwater 420 Music Festival returned after a three year hiatus, and kicked off on Thursday, April 28th with a pre-party to get the festivities going. Bands played on one stage only, which limited the options but packed in the fun. While the line up for this night shifted a number of times prior to the event start, the day went off without a hitch.
