Michael Franti & Spearhead to Replace Lenny Kravitz at Jazz Aspen Snowmass
Michael Franti & Spearhead will replace Lenny Kravitz on the bill for Jazz Aspen Snowmass’ Labor Day festival. This will be Franti’s only 2011 Colorado appearance. Franti will perform before the Zac Brown Band on Sunday, September 4. As previously reported, the annual festival will return to Snowmass, CO from September 2-4. Steely Dan, Girl Talk, Thievery Corporation, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Fitz & the Tantrums and the Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses are also slated to perform.
Representatives for Kravitz explained that the release of the guitarist’s new record, previously scheduled for early spring 2011, had been pushed back to fall 2011, and thus his scheduled summer 2011 tour had been postponed. Festival organizers are looking to potentially reschedule the performance for 2012.
