Spafford is a high energy, four-piece, funky jam rock band from Prescott, Arizona. Spafford’s music is characterized by captivating vocal harmonies, catchy and unique riffs, proficient jam sessions, and solos from each member of the band. Spafford is known for “bringing the jam” wherever they go, motivating people to have a good time, dance, and support their local venues. While Spafford has been recorded in The Daily Courier as a band that is “musically driven for musically mature listeners,” all types and ages enjoy their music.
The band was started in 2008 by lead guitarist Brian Moss and former drummer (now bassist) Chris Fairless. In 2010, Spafford snagged Jonathan Hust on the keys to bring a new dimension to the band. After a three-month hiatus spent catching up their new drummer, Nick Tkachyk, they are back on the market for public consumption. Spafford has been listed in The AZ Edge as the Prescott band to watch in 2011. The band has also been featured in Pop Rocket and The Daily Courier.
This is a group that is passionately driven to reach people with their music. Spafford’s goal is to reignite an active music scene in Arizona that embraces the seemingly lost art of the jam. The boys are ready to get people together to dance and enjoy themselves and feed the fire that is the upcoming Arizona music scene.
Opening for Spafford is Sedona’s own Black Forest Society, taking you on a journey with the eclectic songwriting and improvisational highlights of acoustic guitarist William Schwab and multi instrumentalist Dave Rentz. Their music echos the shadows and secrets found in the natural world, reminding you that wild things do indeed still lurk in the dark corners of the forest. Having performed together for over two years in the Sedona area, Schwab and Rentz focus on creating an experience without boundaries.
