One of Colorado’s favorite home grown bands, Leftover Salmon is on tour and busy as ever. The band recently played throughout Colorado and even performed a free concert at Breckenridge’s Spring Fever last month. The unseasonably warm event was a fun filled concert with many attendees in shorts, t-shirts and miniskirts. The concert at the base of Peak 8 was packed with fans some engaging in the age old spring time fun of slush slinging. At one point the air was so filled with a glimmering spray of ice that you could hardly see the band. Soon the band asked that the fans be mindful of the children in the audience and things calmed down a bit for the fans to enjoy the music.
The band is working hard to spread the word that they are back and better than ever. They have revamped their website, audio stream many of their live concerts, and their new Timeline Facebook page recently reached 20,000 “likes” or fans.
Leftover Salmon recently completed their new album “Aquatic Hitchhiker” in Portland, Oregon and even documented the recording process in a 5 part documentary series called Salmonlandia that can be viewed for a small price at iClips.
Leftover Salmon is currently touring through the southern U.S., next month however, they have a treat in store for their local fans. Leftover Salmon plans another free show, this time in Santa Fe Art District of Denver. The Sunday, May 13th, concert is billed as their “Aquatic Hitchhiker” album release party and is a benefit for the Conscious Alliance. This will be a daytime show according to the bands website, “Party starts at 1pm and goes til 6pm.” Rocky Mountain Jams would like to congratulate Leftover Salmon and their continued success and we look forward to the new album, yes they did a printing on vinyl, and we will see you at the album release party in May.
