Full Show Audio: Spafford Welcomes Dave Bruzza For Red Hot Chili Peppers Cover In Fort Collins


Last night Spafford continued their fall tour with a gig at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, Colorado. The rising jam act played a two set show that saw them offer up a Tom Petty cover and welcome a member of Greensky Bluegrass during their second set.

The Arizona-based band opened the night with the pairing of “It’s A Bunch > Mind’s Unchained” that they stretched out past the twenty minute mark. The quartet nodded to the late Tom Petty next with a cover of “You Don’t Know How It Feels,” playing the Wildflowers track for the third time since debuting it last month in Vermont. “Slip And Squander,” followed with the band stretching out both “Windmill” and “All In” for a combined half hour to close out their first set.

Spafford kicked off their second set of the night with another jam-filled run this time dedicating nearly 45 minutes to the one-two punch of “Virtual Bean Dip” > “Back Funk” and “Electric Taco Stand.” The band then brought out Greensky Bluegrass guitarist and vocalist Dave Bruzza to the stage for a cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Soul To Squeeze.” The augmented act served up a bluegrass-tinged take on the Chili Peppers b-side, that was eventually released on the soundtrack for the 1993 film Coneheads. “America” and “The Reprise” closed out the second set, while a double encore of “Shake You Loose” and “Galisteo Way” brought the night to end.
