"Born in a time when the definition of ï¿½live musicï¿½ seems in constant flux, Coloradoï¿½s Springdale Quartet may upon first inspection seem slightly out of place. Their sound and style, based foremost on a compositional foundation with its roots in the jazz and blues traditions, has been described at times as ï¿½vintageï¿½. But the real stuff- the music itself- cannot be so readily labeled. Drawing additionally from the musical institutions of Heavy organ, upbeat funk, and progressive rock, Springdaleï¿½s live show is anything but antiquated- in fact, itï¿½s dance music! Blending reverence for the technical traditions of each membersï¿½ instrument with a desire to improvise musically results in the creation of new and distinctive sonic landscapes every night- for this four-piece, itï¿½s all about creating a sound that is dually familiar and unique; that both comforts and excites. Springdale was featured at 10,000 Lakes Festival in 2008, and has performed at some of Coloradoï¿½s most prestigious venues such as the Fox Theatre, Boulder Theater, Gothic Theatre, The Mishawaka, and more with acts including the Benevento/Russo Duo, Tea Leaf Green, and The New Mastersounds. Never forgetting to have a sense of humor, Springdale Quartet has emerged from their humble beginnings on Springdale Lane to make a lasting impression on the ever-growing Colorado music scene, and they're doing it in style.
Jambands.com Review of Springdale Quartet's Waterfront Music Festival set:
"The first annual Waterfront Music Festival, held on opening weekend at the breathtaking Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, CO, proved to be an excellent platform for some up-and-coming local and national bluegrass/rock acts ï¿½ Cornmeal is amazing, Springdale Quartet is a band everyone should know about, Head for the Hills is the real deal and Greensky Bluegrass is plain old fun ï¿½ while also playing host to some bluegrass/jam vets (members of Yonder Mountain String Band, String Cheese Incident and Drew Emmitt were all in attendance). Over the course of a rather wet weekend, the sold-out festival provided many moments of musical and visual bliss...(omission, review of Friday/Saturday)... Sunday. Letï¿½s call Sunday sunshine day. It felt so good to arrive at the venue early Sunday afternoon with few clouds in the sky, the sun shining and temperatures expected to reach the 70s. This was bloodymary weather. Grabbing a couple, my girlfriend and I made our way to the concert pit. The first band of the day was Springdale Quartet from Boulder. Starting around 1:30 pm, they played to a very sparse crowd (a crowd that was no doubt still buzzing around the campground, recovering from last night and prepping for the closing night). But crowd or no crowd, I was blown away. One of the few non-bluegrass bands playing the weekend, the boys from Boulder brought their version of mostly instrumental funk-rock to the forefront. On top of it all, these kids have a ton of moxie. Playing in front of very few, they were still up on stage rocking and grooving with each other non-stop."
