Arizona-based jam quartet Spafford will return to Montana for two shows this weekend! First will be in Bozeman at The ELM on Saturday, October 15th, and second will be in Missoula at The Top Hat on Sunday, October 16th!

Spafford has become one of the jam scene’s most-buzzed-about live bands thanks to their brilliant improvisation, genre-exploring sound, and high-energy performances. Band members include  Brian Moss (guitar/vocals), Jordan Fairless (bass/vocals), Andrew “Red” Johnson (keys/vocals), and Cameron Laforest (drums/percussion/vocals).

“…Spafford…are more than willing to bend the rules as they explode onto the scene with new tricks up their sleeve.” – Marquee Magazine

In 2018, they released their second proper studio album, For Amusement Only. Relix reviewed the album saying Spafford “blend their instruments together seamlessly” and that the “sound on this release is watertight without feeling overworked. Since then, they’ve released the EP The Gaff Tapes (2019), the 47-minute Chapel Jam (2019), and three live albums including Live at the Drive-In (2020), Live, Vol. 3 (2020), and Hindsight (A Live Compilation) (2022).

“When listening, one can hear some heart-felt gritty rock, crazy psychedelic tones, spacey riffs, and so much more.” – Phoenix New-Times

About Spafford

Spafford are 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 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.
