The 1up Colfax has had ties to the Umphrey's community since the barcade opened its stage in 2013. The full band has played an infamous Bill Graham show there over the NYE 2013 run (see: Epic "Blue Echo"). Cosby Sweater has hosted a handful of shows there with old man Joel Cummins. Now, Kris Myers will join an all star troop of musicians at the venue for what will certainly be a jazzy super jam of epic proportions. At the helm is Jen Hartswick, whose trumpet and gorgeous voice are featured in the Trey Anatasio Band, and who has also collaborated with UM several times on Bullhead City. They are joined by fellow TAB wind instrumentalists James Casey on saxaphone and Natalie Cressman on trombone, Lettuce's legendary guitarist Adam Smirnoff, jazz bass aficionado Dezron Douglas of the Black Lion crew, and versatile Steve Watkins, keyboardist for Allen Stone's band who has played with everyone from A Tribe Called Quest to Donny Hathaway.
Denver is certainly getting a late summer unique treat that should not be missed by any Umphreak! Tickets go on sale Friday, June 6th at 10am MT.
