KFAI Sponsors Leftover Salmon & The Big Wu at First Ave.

Saturday, November 16, 2013 - 8:00pm

KFAI is proud to sponsor polyethnic Cajun slamgrass band Leftover Salmon plus The Big Wu in concert at First Ave. on Saturday, November 16th.

Formed in Boulder Colorado in 1989, they were one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock & roll bars and unwitting architects of the jam grass genre.  Leftover Salmon has become a pillar of the jam band scene with their rootsy / Americana, string-based music. Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. .

A little crazy and bit by a loon, The Big Wu has been creating music, touring the country, and playing midwest american roots music since 1992. Although they fit the jam band stereotype to a certain degree, their playful and rootsy attitude has more in common with the likes of Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen or NRBQ.
