If you don't know Wes Williams, you should. He's an old friend of the band and has a bunch of history entwined with the boys. If Spafford and Wes are in the same town it's not unreasonable to find a sit in. Brian joined them in NOLA a few months back and it looks like Red popped in last night in Phoenix.

Nerds! We are really excited to announce a new feature in the Spaffbase: Embedded Audio Player for Archive and YouTube. You'll now see YouTube and Archive recording buttons have a "Play" button on them. If you hit that the content will open in site and (on desktop) begin playing. Our goal is to be the one-stop-shop for all your Spafford needs. We hope this feature saves you a few clicks and makes it easier to drink from the Spafford firehose.

How do you get your live dose of Spafford?

Some of you Nerds get to go on tour, hit multiple shows, and maybe squeeze in a summer festival. Congratulations, I salute you for soaking in as much jamming as possible. For others, despite the desire for more, more, more we have to be satisfied with a single show squeezed in between work and family commitments. These days, I'm a member of the latter group. Which means when I do get my Spafford fix, I savor every guitar solo, cling to every cymbal crash, and absorb every bass vibration. They have to last me months.

With my touring days relegated to the rearview mirror and the band eschewing Denver for Colorado ski towns this winter, the Barkley Ballroom show was my lon...

Nerds! That was fun. The April Fool's gag got incredible feedback, and use, from the community. It was really fun putting it together and launching it. Believe it or not we did that in less than 1 week's time. In case you missed it, or you just want another go at whack-a-nerd, you can still find the reskinned site and the game available at the following locations:
