Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-03-07 - The Volcanic Theater & Pub - Bend, OR

High expectations. These two words summarize the vibe leading up to Spafford’s debut in Bend. For a little mountain town, we get a decent number of good acts. The local affinity for live music is potent. Posters for jam bands adorn the local watering holes. We have a regional reputation for “fun now, worry later,” and bands who know the way our town throws down make a habit of crossing the Cascade Range to pay a visit.

For many of my friends, this would be their first taste. I was excited to see what my pals thought of Brian, Red, Jordan and Cam in person. Just to make things e...

Nerds! In celebration of the release of the Raleigh show to nugs.net we've decided to run our first prize giveaway/fundraiser of 2018! This is your chance to plug into the band's official releases and hear all that they have to offer in pure, chomper-free, glory.

We also want to take this opportunity to ask you to help us fund this site. There are real dollar costs involved in running and maintaining this infrastructure.

The Higgs will open for Spafford on 5 shows of the West Coast leg of the For Amusement Only Tour. Some of you may already be familiar with these guys as they've opened for Spafford before, including at my first show a few years back. Whether you're doing the West Coast leg or not, check out what these guys have to offer. They definitely deserve a place in the upcoming class of Jam Bands.

Start out with a familiar cover including a legendary guest:

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-01-24 - Wonderbar - Asbury Park, NJ

@uconnwes, @603Brett , and I rolled into Asbury Park by 1pm after raging away the night before in Pawtucket, RI when the messages started coming in. The band had forgotten their merch in RI the night before, but we got the message too late to help. We checked-in to our boutique hotel right next to the venue and got settled.

A pre-show meet-up was planned before the show, and we arrived at the Ale House about an hour before the band w...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-01-23 - The Met - Pawtucket, RI

There once was a jam in Pawtucket...

It was a chilly Tuesday night and Spafford was back in New England to a kindle the fires within us and heat up The Met for the evening. I had met up with my buddies George and Wes and we all made the trek in together. We pre-gamed at Craft Burgers and Brew that ironically hadn’t bothered to change from the previous establishment...which made it fun for our Lyft to find, but that’s another tale. We got to meet some new Nerds like Ron Lauer and reconnect with Ryan Cierrello and Josh Herrick, who we’d met on Fall Tour. Collectively, we were...
