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...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-03-15 - Old Town Pub, Steamboat, CO

A state like Colorado has many peaks scattered throughout. Add Spafford to Colorado and all you have are peaks. Steamboat Springs was the second stop on the four-night Spafford Colorado run to close out the tour. When the tour was announced and I saw those shows, I somehow wanted to make it, but there was a slim chance I would be able to with school. Well, let me tell you, after that raging Milwaukee Miramar show, I had to go see more, as I didn’t want my Spaff Infection to wear off. I ended up buying the tickets to each of the...
