Jamband favorites Spafford have been releasing videos featuring footage from their 2017 New Years Eve run at The Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, AZ, and they have just released another one today. You can stream the video, which contains footage from the countdown segment of their 12/31 show, below.
Spafford had a huge 2017 which saw them touring nationally and hitting some huge jamband festivals. They capped the year off in impressive style with three great nights in their hometown of Phoenix, and the most recent new video brings some more awesome footage from their last gig of the year. Starting with a high energy version of The Eagles’ “Those Shoes,” the twenty-one minute segment works its way through an extra-weird version of “Aliens,” and then brings in the new year with a pretty groovy take on “Auld Lang Syne.” It’s got a little of everything that makes Spafford great: some tasty Brian Moss rips, deep space, evil laughter, and more.
As for 2018, Spafford have been capitalizing on their great momentum with a big winter tour, dubbed the “For Amusement Only” tour. Starting on February 28, they will kick off the tour’s second leg at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA, and then spend March making their way across the west coast and southwest. A number of these shows are already sold out, so make sure to get tickets soon if you want to see Spafford rock this winter season.
Spafford Upcoming Tour Dates:
2/28 – Solana Beach, CA – Belly Up
