Fishman to play with Yonder Mountain at Red Rocks

Red Rocks Line up!

Yonder to be joined by
very special guests RODRIGO Y GABRIELA, TODD SNIDER and JON FISHMAN OF PHISH!
 
Yonder will continue to break new ground this Labor Day weekend at Red Rocks.  Special guest drummer Jon Fishman of Phish will join Yonder during their show, which is a dream-come-true for the band.  Yonder’s bassist Ben Kaufmann says “it’s not an exaggeration to say that Phish’s music inspired me to pursue a life making music of my own.  The chance to play music with Jon Fishman, at Red Rocks no less is both a great honor and the fulfillment of a dream.  He is without question my favorite drummer.”

 In addition to Fishman, the line up also includes Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela.  Fusing Latin harmonies and rhythms with thrash metal on their acoustic guitars, Rod and Gab quickly rose to #1 on the charts in Ireland and are now taking the US by storm.  Similar to Yonder, Rod and Gab take acoustic instruments to new ground.  Variety said of their recent Los Angeles performance, “It was a stunning, jaw-dropping performance and garnered the only standing ovation of the evening.”

 Singer-songwriter and Yonder favorite, Todd Snider, will kick off the evening with his satirical songwriting and music inspired by the likes of John Prine and Jerry Jeff Walker, providing the perfect start for a great evening.





That should be one heck of an evening!

I'm a big fan of their last album, self titled.  Their shows are always a blast.  I'm thinking about hitting the Roxs for this one.

It's a great day on the interweb, people.

You guys know the rule... If you weren't there, it wasn't anything special...

Anyone who ever played a part, they wouldn't turn around and hate it.

Hmmm, can't make the Asheville show, unfortunately.  I wonder what the odds are that Fish would make an appearance with YMSB at Bonnaroo this year?  Unlikely I'm sure, but it would be kinda cool!
