first_imgThe future is definitely bright for Spafford, who will be coming to New York City for a special two-night post-Phish New Year’s run with The Magic Beans. Those shows are set for Dec. 30th and 31st, right around the corner from Madison Square Garden, at jam-friendly venue American Beauty (for ticket info check here). One year ago today, Arizona-based jammers Spafford sent ripples through the jam universe when they live streamed 90 minutes of unedited and uninterrupted improvisational goodness. The band was holed up at a friends cabin deep in the mountains of Colorado for a band retreat, and they were feeling it so they decided to share it with the world. What resulted was their most listened to piece of music on the streaming service Soundcloud. The jam goes through many different themes and variations showing off the band’s diverse musical tastes and abilities to create in the moment.Since posting “The Cabin Jams” the band has seen steady growth resulting in a full national tour with Umphrey’s McGee and an expansive tour schedule for the first half of 2017. Listen to what changed the game for Spafford in the stream below:last_img
