  • An Evening with Spafford – Acoustic Only Show

The upcoming tour follows the recent release of THE GAFF TAPES, a new 5-song EP that expertly captures the unique variety of sounds, influences, and styles that define Spafford. THE GAFF TAPES – which follows 2018’s full-length FOR AMUSEMENT ONLY.

“The entirety of the project is a journey through life as seen through the eyes of people who have lived very different lives yet found a common thread through music,” said Spafford. “This project was a true group effort and it brought us so much joy being able to go back to our roots and record and produce these on our own, in our own studio and homes. We poured our souls into creating something we’re all proud of – something that we hope speaks to the people who will listen to it.”

Known for their astonishing improvisational ability and off-the-cuff extended jams, Spafford paints a picture in real time each night with a musical palette known only to each other. It’s a private language comprised of both their talent as musicians as well as their formidable catalog of influences, spanning 90’s alt-rock radio hits to Steely Dan and The Crystal Method. Each and every Spafford show is a sonic pilgrimage, the journey of a team of musicians so in tune with each other that a single note communicates intent and purpose. Spafford is amongst the most creative and hard-traveling bands on the contemporary jam scene, performing countless sold out headline dates along with high profile festival sets at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Firefly Music Festival, and many others.
