Published on January 6, 2023

Grateful Music has loved Spafford ever since “discovering” them at the Milkboy in Philadelphia so many years ago now. Currently, Spafford is a seasoned and spectacular band. However, time marches on and NYE at the Marquee in Tempe AZ was our beloved Andrew “Red” Johnson’s final show with Spafford.

Emotional and soaring take on “Slip and Squander”. Van Morrison cover “Into The Mystic”, The Who cover “Eminence Front”. Played “To The Nest” off their new album Simple Mysteries as their final song of 2022 before welcoming the New Year with Auld Lang Syne > Electric Taco Stand. Encore began with only Red on stage to start Beautiful Day, he gave an emotional speech to the fans prior and started the song acoustic.
