This Thursday The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York will be getting some serious jam treatment when bands Spafford and Mungion bring three full sets of musical heat.
Hailing from Arizona and cutting their teeth at big time venues like Last Exit Live and the Marquee Theatre, Spafford has hit the music world with quite a bang, bringing their combination of breathtaking compositions and electro-infused dance grooves into the jamband scene. This past winter saw the band join Umphrey’s McGee on tour, and even next to that jam staple of a band, the Arizona rockers left crowds buzzing with intrigue, clearly impacted by Spafford’s uncanny live improvisational prowess.
The Williamsburg show will be only the third New York City performance for Spafford, with the first two being their extraordinary back-to-back post-Phish aftershows on New Year’s Eve weekend at American Beauty.
Joining them, for this night and the rest of their Spring tour, will be Chicago-based quartet Mungion.
The music of Mungion is an amazing synthesis of different musical styles, touching upon the likes of everything from rock, jazz and bluegrass, to metal, Latin, and even classical and world music. They only began playing together as a band in 2015, and are already booked this year to grace the lineups of huge festivals like Summer Camp, Peach Fest and Resonance.
If you’ve been hearing the names of these two popping up around the scene, the Williamsburg show this Thursday night may help to prove that the hype is justified.
