Shpongle Live Band to Play Red Rocks in 2014
The Shpongle Live Band will return to the United States for a performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on May 9, 2014. It will be the fourth time that the group, which features Simon Posford, Raja Ram, Joe Russo and many more, has played a gig in North America.
Shpongle, which technically consists of Posford and Ram, hardly ever tours with the full backing band. The group is usually represented by Posford, who hits the road with his DJ sets instead. Those performances tend to feature visually interesting backdrops with names like the Shpongletron Experience or The Masquerade, though they lack the full on instrumentation that comes with live band shows.
Shpongle Live Band concerts are few and far between, though the group did put on one of their rare performances at The Roxy in London this past Friday. There is currently no word on whether or not the band has planned any other U.S. gigs for next year.
