Tomorrow, Sound-Fix is excited to be catching Spafford at Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA, the first stop of their For Amusement Only Tour since the group’s last appearance at Jack Rabbits in Fort Lauderdale, FL on February 2nd.  Spafford will be accompanied by the Higgs in Solana Beach, and you can purchase tickets to the show here.  After a ground breaking Fall of 2017 with the inclusion of a crowd pleasing performance at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles last November, Spafford’s return to the West Coast has been highly anticipated among the jam community.

The jam band based out of Prescott, Arizona has showed no signs of stopping with their return to the stage in 2018 jumping into it with 2 back-to-back sold out shows in both Minneapolis, MN and Milwaukee, WI.  Spafford continues to raise the bar each show they play with deep jazz, funk, and rock influenced improvisational segments that have been pulling crowds at music venues across the country.  It’s no surprise Spafford’s summer work load is only getting heavier, making appearances at festivals all over North America such as Bonnaroo, Firefly Music Festival, Friendly Gathering, The Peach Fest, Element Music Festival in British Colombia and more.

Spafford “After Midnight – Mind’s Unchained” (1/12/18)

Their tour will continue to make its way through the West Coast including another sold out show at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroad in San Rafael, CA on Saturday, March 3rd.  More dates from Spafford’s For Amusement Only Tour are listed below.

The sky is the limit for this band right now, and we’d recommend giving them a listen and keeping these guys on your radar.  To listen to “A Taste of Fall 2017” a compilation of some favorites from Spafford’s 2017 Fall tour on Spotify, click here.
