Leftover Salmon got the band back together this past weekend for the very special Fall Maskerade 2020, as their last show of 2020. For three sold out nights, Leftover Salmon played live in Buena Vista, CO at the Surf Hotel‘s newest outdoor venue, The LAWN, on October 23rd, 24th, and 25th. The band also teamed up with Nugs.tv to stream all 3 shows.

“Buena Vista’s Surf Hotel was the perfect setting for a much needed socially distanced mini festival,” said frontman Vince Herman of the festivities. “The weather was Coloradoish. Sunny and warm and dumping snow too! It was a great collection of friends, kids, and dogs having music for the soul. Such fun! Now it’s time to crawl back into the Covid bubble and stay safe. See ya next year!”

On Friday night, the band performed a number of songs for the first time live including, “Best Day Ever”, “Cloud City”, “Morning Dew”, and “We’ll Get By”. They went deep with a funky “Muddy Water Home” and Drew Emmitt busted out the electric mandolin on “Fireline”. Tyler Grant joined in on “Breakin’ Thru” and “Mr. Charlie”. Watch a video of “Best Day Ever” below:

Saturday Night was a total costume party on site, with fans dressed up to the max. Coleman Smith (Rapidgrass) joined the band on fiddle for “Bird Call” and Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Derby Day” in honor of the outlaw country great, who passed away on Saturday at the age of 78. The opening set closer, “Reuben’s Train”, featured some chicken foot antics and teased “Dinner And A Movie”, “Once In A Lifetime”, and “Moose’s Lucky Day”. They performed “Black Peter” for the first time live and hosted a crowd “Maskerade” during “Show Me Something Higher”. Check out the show opener from Saturday below:

Sunday took place during a snowstorm, adding to the magic of the day. Leftover Salmon, once again, played a handful of songs for the first time ever on stage including JJW’s “Mr. Bojangles”, “Sunday”, and “Bringing It On Home To Me”. Coleman Smith joined the band on fiddle for the entire second set and there was some triple fiddle action with Andy Thorn, Emmitt, and Smith on “Bringing It On Home To Me”.
