I have to admit I had been looking forward to this weekend for a looong time. Umphrey's McGee and Spafford are hands down my two favorite bands, and to have them together for 3 total shows over 2 nights in the Midwest is as good as it gets for me. The smiles and hugs from friends as we entered the Chesterfield Amphitheater were almost in jeopardy as we waited out a run of fairly significant thunderstorms that seemed to come out of nowhere and last up until just minutes before the guys took the stage. Tonight was going to be a hot one. Mid 90’s and high humidity made for less than ideal dancing conditions, especially in the pit, but none of that mattered now. Spafford was taking the stage and life was good!

I'd be lying if I said this was the first time it felt like the positi...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-08-26 - Lockn' @ Infiniti Downs and Oak Ridge Farm - Arrington, VA

Locked in for Lockn’

Oh, the magic that is Lockn’!!! A reminder of the days when the large music festivals were filing their lineup with jam friendly bands and packing the side stages with every regional and local act they could find. Certainly, it is one of the few larger festivals that caters too those who crave improvised music. I was absolutely delighted to see Spafford on the lineup for Lockn’ as it is one of my favorite festivals to attend in general and I know the scene watches this fest closely.

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-08-18 - St. Augustine Amphitheater - St. Augustine, FL

The Oldest City in America! When I looked through the tour list after Spafford announced they would be returning to the road with Umphrey’s, there was one show that called to me. One show that I knew if I was going to catch them at all this tour, it would HAVE to be that that show in St. Augustine.

Nerds…the August 10th, 2018 show at The Chesterfield Amphithteater might not be remembered as the set of the summer…after all, they played their first Bonnaroo and are gearing up for Lockn’. Peach Fest ushered in the mythically unforgettable whipping rains that caused Brian’s pedal to fart out, leaving Jordan to lead the rhythm section of All In jamming’. Surely it wouldn’t have the mystique of the Element Festival with the Cressman/Hartwick and Hann sit-ins and the best Lonely to date…in CANADA!!!! They used their PASSPORTS, for heaven’s sake!!! And I’m sure that for those lucky en...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-08-11 - The Hi-Fi - Indianapolis, IN

I want to start this review off by talking about the first venue for my 7th and 8th Spafford adventure. The Lawn at White River in Indianapolis is an open amphitheater with mainly a grass standing/seating area that is in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. It was the perfect setting for an evening filled with great music being delivered to us by Spafford and
