In early November, Spafford tore across Colorado during a three-night run saw that saw the group perform at Fort Collins’ The Aggie and Denver’s Ogden Theatre and Globe Hall. Today, the has just released pro-shot video of “Salamander Song” from their show at the Ogden on November 9th, 2017. “Salamander Song” fell during the end of the second set, coming out of the band’s beloved cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Aeroplane” and ahead of the set-closing rendition of “Beautiful Day”.
For the group’s Thursday night Ogden performance, the Arizona-born four-piece offered up a fiery performance to start its Colorado run, inviting Prescott, Arizona friend Don Cheek of Don Cheek and The Cheektones to help them close out the first set on his own tune “Spell Yourself”. However, the collaborations for the night did not end there, as Denver saxophonist and sit-in expert Nick Gerlach (read Gerlach’s hilarious “The Six Rules All Musicians Must Follow When Sitting In With Other Artists”) also joined the band at the start of the second set on Spafford’s “Ain’t That Wrong” and Stevie Wonder’s “Living For The City”.
