Spafford Invites Umphrey’s Brendan Bayliss To Sit-In For Hometown Show [Video]

Last night, Spafford continued their tour supporting Umphrey’s McGee with a hometown show in Tempe, Arizona, at the Marquee Theatre. Spafford was certainly feeling the hometown love last night, treating local fans to a smokin’ show that featured the debut of a brand new song, “Minds Unchanged” and saw Umphrey’s McGee’s guitarist Brendan Bayliss join them for “The Postman.”

Their show kicked off with “Beautiful Day” before moving into the debut of the new song, “Minds Unchanged.” Keeping this heater of a set opener going, after the new song wound down, Spafford invited Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Brendan Bayliss to join them for the “The Postman” before closing out the show with “Weasel” and “Salamander.”

You can watch video from their first three songs below, courtesy of TourGigs. After show opener “Beautiful Day,” the new song, “Minds Unchanged,” makes its debut around the six-minute mark, and Brendan Bayliss emerges for “The Postman” around the fourteen-minute mark. You can also catch the band on the road, with Spafford announcing two new dates in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 21st and 22nd for local friends who liked what they saw last night, to add to their extensive touring schedule, which can be found on their website here.
