Today, the Arizona-bred quartet announces a 22-show tour for fall 2021, beginning on October 1st at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. Moving throughout the midwest, southeast and along the east coast, the tour then features three shows around North Carolina, a two-night run in Milwaukee, WI, culminating in Chicago, IL on November 6th at Park West. A full list of dates is below.

After a deadly pandemic revived our collective gratitude for music and togetherness, Spafford is incredibly grateful for the patience and constant support of their dedicated listeners. With a renewed appreciation for life and live music, the band has a tour like no other in store. Frontman Brian Moss couldn’t be more ready to bring new energy to each and every performance. He shares, “We’ve been very busy this last year and have taken the time to redefine ourselves, our music, and our message. We are excited to share the future of Spafford with you and can’t wait to see your beautiful faces at a show.”

More About Spafford:

Spafford has solidified themselves among the most creative and hard-traveled bands on the contemporary jam scene. Pairing complex compositions with extended improvisations, the rousing energy of the Southwest-based quartet — Brian Moss (guitar, vocals), Jordan Fairless (bass, vocals), Andrew “Red” Johnson (keys, vocals), and Nick Tkachyk (drums, vocals) — is matched by their outstanding talent, versatility of playing styles, and extensive catalogue of original music and innovative covers. Each Spafford show is a sensory expedition of extended jams — an interplay of lights, tones, cascading melodies, and balance that carries a ceaselessly-dancing crowd through the night.

Featured tour highlights in support of their studio albums include their 2014 Southwest tour, 2016 breakout tour, 2017 tour with Umphrey’s McGee, 2018 For Amusement Only tour, and a 40-show winter tour across the U.S. in 2019. Spafford has graced the stages of many national festivals including at Summer Camp, Bonnaroo, Firefly, High Sierra, Levitate, Peach, and Lockn’, among many others. Additionally, Spafford has collaborated with the likes of Karl Denson (Rolling Stones, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe); Aron Magner (Disco Biscuits); Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee); and Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman, and James Casey (Trey Anastasio Band) during the tenure of their illustrious career.
