DENVER, CO — Leftover Salmon got the band back together for a very special weekend for the Fall Maskerade 2020, as their last show of 2020. For three sold out nights, Leftover Salmon played live in Buena Vista, CO at the Surf Hotel’s newest outdoor venue, The LAWN Friday-Sunday, October 23, 24, 25. 

The band also teamed up with Nugs.tv to stream all 3 shows.

“Buena Vista’s Surf Hotel was the perfect setting for a much needed socially distanced mini festival!” Vince Herman says, “The weather was Coloradoish. Sunny and warm and dumping snow too! It was a great collection of friends, kids, and dogs having music for the soul. Such fun! Now it’s time to crawl back into the Covid bubble and stay safe. See ya next year!”

With two sets each night, there were so many memorable moments! This small gathering of friends and family coming back together, along with everyone that tuned in online, was a great reminder how special this festival community is. Folks at home could feel the magical energy of the experience.

Friday night Leftover Salmon performed a number of songs for the first time live including, “Best Day Ever,” “Cloud City,” “Morning Dew,” and “We’ll Get By.” They went deep with a funky “Muddy Water Home” and Drew busted out the electric mandolin on “Fireline.” Tyler Grant joined in on “Breakin’ Thru” and “Mr. Charlie.”

Saturday Night was a total costume party on site– with fans dressed up to the max. Calls were made from stage to “Vote for Pedro”, theye bands was on fire

Coleman Smith (of Rapidgrass) on fiddle joined the band on “Bird Call” and Jerry Jeff Walker’s  “Derby Day.” The opening set closer, “Reuben’s Train” features some chicken foot antics and teased “Dinner And A Movie,” “Once In A Lifetime,” and “Moose’s Lucky Day.” They performed “Black Peter” for the first time live and hosted a crowd Maskerade during “Show Me Something Higher.” 

#ICYMI- Leftover Salmon Acoustic Tribute to Jerry Jeff Walker backstage Saturday night performing JJW’s ”Derby Day.” You can watch it on FaceBook here.

Sunday took place during a snowstorm, adding to the magic of the day. They, once again, played a handful of songs for the first time ever on stage including JJW’s “Mr. Bojangles,” “Sunday,” and “Bringing It On Home To Me.” Coleman Smith joined the band on fiddle for the entire second set and there was some triple fiddle action with Andy, Drew, and Coleman on “Bringing It On Home To Me.”

“This Is The Time” was the last song of the Los Fall Makerade (and the 2nd in that night’s encore) was extra special. The lyrics: “This isn’t a time for giving up. This is the time to be strong…. I know life is never easy, when you’re holding out so long… I know that we can make it, with a little bit of faith to get us by…. This isn’t the time or faking. This is the time for us to fly… 

This isn’t the time for losing hope. This is the time to lean… Well I know we can find our way if you’re ready to receive…. There’s always so much to learn, as you wander through this life…. And timing is everything. This is the time, the night…”

TUNE IN ALERT- Livestream Leftover Salmon’s
Fall Maskerade on Nugs.tv
Friday-Sunday, October 23-35, 2020

Leftover Salmon will be performing live to a sold out show in Buena Vista, CO

Tune in here: Nugs.tv
Tickets and Information at: 2NU.GS/LEFTOVERSALMON  

DENVER, CO — Leftover Salmon is getting the band back together for one weekend only for the Fall Maskerade 2020. For three sold out nights, Leftover Salmon will be playing in Buena Vista, CO on the Surf Hotel’s newest outdoor venue, The LAWN Friday-Sunday, October 23, 24, 25. 

Leftover Salmon is excited to team up with Nugs.tv to stream all 3 shows so no one has to miss out and you can watch from the safety of your home. The shows start at 6pm Friday and Saturday and 3pm on Sunday, and the stream can be played live or on demand. Once you start the stream you will have 48 hour to finish it.

“It’s certainly been a stretch since we turned the bus around on tour March 13th, canceled the Broadmoor, and then eventually our entire summer. We hope you all are doing as well as you can. It’s certainly a strange time!” says Leftover Salmon, one of the great purveyors of Americana music influenced by rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, jazz and blues. 

“In fact, it feels like we are going to anahuac Buena Vista next weekend! Because after next weekend we are going to run, run, run, away again! Stay posted for another anahuac to be announced soon.”

The band, built around the core of founding members Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman, along with  banjo-wiz Andy Thorn, bassist Greg Garrison, and drummer Alwyn Robinson, is excited to be performing as Leftover Salmon after such an unexpected and lengly break. As much as we wish more could attend the show and COVID wasn’t a concern, we have to keep things safe and stay within strict guidelines for all our own good.

“It’s crazy to be coming back for our first gig in a whole new world,” says Thorn, “But as a band, we’ve always been in another universe. There might be a ‘new normal’ out there, so to keep up, we’ll be an all-new weird.”

Leftover Salmon hopes you will all tune in and join us virtually as they get together to perform for the first time in months. “We miss you all much and look forward to when we can all boogie together in person again!!”

Wear them if you got them: costumes are encouraged for the Saturday night show. In fact, so encouraged, we are hosting a contest. Details are forthcoming on the socials, but be prepared to share pics of your digs and scene and tag #LoSMaskerade!

NPR’s Mountain Stage calls Leftover Salmon, “One of the most fun-loving bands you’ll encounter,” and we sure are happy to be able to help refresh us all with some live music again!
