Everything moves at hyper-speed these days.  Just last fall, hype surrounding Spafford and their "Breakout Tour" was white hot, and they delivered in their Chicago debut.


They've covered a lot of ground since then, with long stints supporting Umphrey's McGee and popping up on festival bills all over.  Now the question becomes... can they sustain it?


This show -- back in Chicago with local favorites Mungion at Bottom Lounge -- should go a long way towards answering that question.  Early guesses, based on a recent Denver performance, look positive.


We want to send you and a friend to see for yourself.  Entering our contest is as easy as filling out the form below.  We'll notify the winner on Friday.



What They Say

Spafford is a four piece funk rock act hailing from Phoenix, Arizona. The band is comprised of Brian Moss (Guitar), Jordan Fairless (Bass), Andrew “Red” Johnson (Keys), and Nick Tkachyk (Drums). Refusing to be restricted to any musical boundaries, Spafford seamlessly blends together an eclectic mixture of all of their collective musical experience. The heart of their sound is rooted in deep sonic exploration with a focus on improvisational elements. With jams stretching well beyond the typical structures of their songs, fans have flocked to their live shows to experience the unique energy captured within each performance. A focus on blending genres with a deep foundation of patient groove building has helped craft a sound all their own. Formed in 2012 by happenstance, the band has been building an organic fanbase in the Southwestern United States through word of mouth ever since. As the secret has gotten out Spafford has moved onto national touring, sharing the stage on a coast to coast tour with jam heavyweights Umphrey’s Mcgee in 2017. Reaching the next level in their ascent in an ever changing jam band landscape, Spafford has risen to the top of the next wave of acts by providing quality improvisation and a truly unique musical experience.
