press release: Spafford and Mungion are heading out on the road for a co-billed tour, and will be in Madison, at the Frequency on Friday, April 7.
Spafford is a 4-piece funk rock group hailing from Phoenix, Arizona. According to NYS Music, their sound could be described as, “electrofunk therapy, which combines deep sonic exploration and jam-heavy improvisation.” Earlier this year, the group joined heavyweights Umphrey’s McGee on a tour through the southwestern US. Please check out a live version of their song, “Funkadelic,” from their sold out NYE run at American Beauty in NYC:

Mungion is newer on the scene, formally forming in the spring of 2015 in Chicago, IL, but the newcomers are already selling out headline hometown shows within a few hours. As JamBase points out, the group is, “clearly influenced by Phish and Frank Zappa yet add their own signature sound to the mix.” Mungion have played national festivals like Suwannee Hulaween and Summer Camp Music Festival, and toured with the likes of Moe., Everyone Orchestra, Here Come The Mummies, and more.
