Hello from an Ultra Noob eager to learn
Hi. I live in Florida. I had the chance to see Spafford in Orlando, but I didn't go, because I hadn't heard much of their music except on Endless Boundaries.
I am a 1.0 Phish fan, that got married and had kids and am getting back in the jam scene again after a long break. I realized the Phish petty much just plats MSG and Dicks and a few other places and even though they are my favorite band ever, I realistically might not ever see them live any more.
So I posted on Phish.net for some names of bands and have been listen to a bunch. But today I really fell for Spafford and I am 100% in. I want a band that is young and has a lot of energy. I want a band willing to take risks. I want a band that tours so I can actually see them live. I want a band that jams but is not too dry or formulaic. I want a band with vocals that are sung from the heart.
I believe have found all that with Spafford.
I don't know the songs, the lingo, the names of the band members. I really don't know anything except that it clicked and I want more. Fortunately, between nugs and Archive and youtube, I have a lot of options. :)
So I am an empty cup. Fill me up with Spafford love. Comment and say hi and teach me something!!!
PS: This forum interface is pretty sweet. Beats rec.music.phish! You young fans with your new stuff. Hat tip to whoever runs this place.

Welcome! Few things are better than finding a new band and getting to dive in head first, right?
Here are a few threads that will give you plenty to listen to for a while:
And a great in-studio "show" they played:
Welcome and Enjoy!

my wife and I went to our first show at Terrapin Crossroads on 3/24. we were both blown away and can't wait for our next!
Thanks! This will do nicely!
I have been told that this site isn't as nearly as active as Spaff's FB fan group, but I am not going to use FB, so I will concentrate my efforts here.
@harbo That is pretty awesome. that you have a wife in the guys. My wife might go and she'd tolerate it because she is a nice person, but she would not be excited about it. :)
