Composed of Brian Moss (guitar), Jordan Fairless (bass), Andrew “Red” Johnson (keys), and Cameron Laforest (drums), Spafford’s patented “electrofunk therapy” has a little bit of something for everyone, offering tastes of rock, funk, electronic, bluegrass, gospel, and more. The Arizona-based four-piece is characterized by strong vocals, tight harmonies, catchy tunes, and captivating live shows. However, the group is best known for their immense improvisational abilities, which see the band regularly embark on spontaneous and unrehearsed hour-long musical odysseys featuring jams that are patient, meticulous, and sonically rich.
In recent years, Spafford has witnessed a truly meteoric rise in the jam scene. Coming together serendipitously in 2009, the band gained a dedicated fan base in their home state of Arizona and quickly earned a reputation as the Southwest’s go-to jam act. Through word of mouth, buzz about the group spread, and due to unprecedented demand, their headlining tours consistently sold out venues across the country. Most recently, Spafford has been selected to play high-profile events like Bonnaroo, The Peach Music Festival, Summer Camp, Firefly Music Festival, and Suwanee Hulaween.
"The band Of Tomorrow is just that; a musical project from the future. If they have a rapper join them, they play hip-hop. If they have a shredder, they play metal; if they have horns, they play funk. More often than not, they have all of these players and more at once, so they ping-pong between genres and weave together harmonic sections in a way no other band would dare to. In the same way, their pre-written lyrics don’t shy away from any subject, nor does any guest member from any challenge to make an Of Tomorrow song their own. Of Tomorrow structures its mission around an unpredictable and transformative experience - always high energy, always premium quality, based often in familiar melodies and intellectual lyrics, but exploring improvised ideas with every new layer.” - Carly Shields, Ever Upward Entertainment, Denver, CO
