Nerds! I'm extremely excited to unveil the latest project from spaffnerds.com: The SpaffNerds.com Audio Player for Alexa!

The Alexa Skill
This project was born from a personal need that I had. I use Amazon Alexa Dots as my primary audio player in my living room and my office. Unfortunately though, I had no way to listen to Spafford's live shows (except the ones on Spotify) on these devices. So I ...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2019-02-06 - Buffalo Iron Works - Buffalo, NY

I flew into Buffalo late Wednesday afternoon, leaving my wife and kids behind on a beach vacation in Florida. A nasty winter storm had just moved through the area and the city was covered in a half inch thick glazing of ice. My Uber dropped me off at the downtown Marriot shortly after 6 and by 630 I was scarfing wings and pizza with a tasty IPA at the bar with Brett and Wes who had driven up from New England together. After our meal we made the 5 minute walk over to the venue shortly after doors opened and were delighted to find the place fairly empty leaving us ample space to set up shop wherever we please...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2019-02-08 - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA

Your trip starts with a drive down the interminally long-feeling Turnpike with sunset in the direction of Philly toward which you cruise under high cirrostratus canvases splashed with quiet flames of exquisite light that must be either magical or chemical in nature. It is a homecoming of sorts to a place of vivid remembered experiences rather than a residence of past inhabitance. Long ago nights cruising into the lights and shadows of the colonial capital in chiaroscuro to visit friend (RIP) and ex-girlfriend (LIP), your side-panel speakers shaking with the hot hot music the hot music.

The bar around t...

What a show. Perfect way to start the Winter Tour.

I've been a nerd for a short time now, but ever since I saw the boys at the House of Blues in Chicago this past year I can't stop listening to these guys jam.

I'm from the Chicagoland area so I was not familiar with the venue in Indy. However, some of my best friends live in downtown Indy and they are nerds as well... shoutout to @TrippinTerrapin and @SleepyGary. I met up with these dudes a few hours before the show and, trust me, we prepared accordingly ;)

The pre-show jitters were in full effect as we arrived at
