Spafford is thrilled to announce their first shows of 2021. The band will make their return to the Marquee Theatre Backyard in Tempe, AZ, for two special performances on April 20 and 21.
The performances will be outdoors and socially distanced with pod seating. Spafford were one of the first in the US to host a drive-in concert, almost one year ago to the day where their performance turned heads of several outlets including Billboard, Good Morning America, PBS News Hour, Rolling Stone, and USA Today who calls the band “electro-funk sensations.”
Spafford is 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.
