SPAFFORD To Play HOUSE OF BLUES With UMPHREY’S MCGEE On AUG. 16


“Spafford has been quickly building a following over the past couple of years thanks to the group’s penchant for improvised, genre-defying live jams [and] offbeat covers…” – Washington Post


Arizona’s resident live band,  Spafford, will be in Orlando, FL on Thursday, August 16th for a performance with Umphrey’s McGee at House of Blues. The quartet, hailing from Pheonix, AZ, are quickly evolving the concept of what a “jam band” is; rather than improvising on top of (and in-and-out of) songs, Spafford chart into territory where much of what they do on stage is fully improvised. 

The best-recorded example of this is Abaculus: An Improvisation Experience, which is an hour-long fully-improvised recording that came out of an impromptu jam session during a rehearsal last fall. Please find a stream to the Huffington Post dubbed “Industry Game Changer” here: http://bit.ly/2D5Qwiq. Their highly anticipated sophomore studio LP,  For Amusement Only, is out now. 


Although Spafford first toured outside of the Southwest during the tail end of 2016, the group has quickly transformed into a nationally touring powerhouse and become one of the premier live acts on today’s scene. This summer, Spafford made their debut at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, along with debut performances at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Firefly Music Festival.
