SPAFFORD To Play HOUSE OF BLUES With UMPHREY'S MCGEE On AUG. 16


"Spafford has been quickly building a following over the past couple of years thanks to the group’s penchant for improvised, genre-defying live jams [and] offbeat covers..." - Washington Post

Arizona's resident live band,  Spafford, will be in Orlando, FL on Thursday, August 16th for a performance with Umphrey's McGee at House of Blues. The quartet, hailing from Pheonix, AZ, are quickly evolving the concept of what a "jam band" is; rather than improvising on top of (and in-and-out of) songs, Spafford chart into territory where much of what they do on stage is fully improvised. 

The best-recorded example of this is Abaculus: An Improvisation Experience, which is an hour-long fully-improvised recording that came out of an impromptu jam session during a rehearsal last fall. Please find a stream to the Huffington Post dubbed "Industry Game Changer" here: http://bit.ly/2D5Qwiq. Their highly anticipated sophomore studio LP,  For Amusement Only, is out now.

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts introduces THE NEWEST CAST MEMBERS OF BROADWAY HIT “WAITRESS”

— Local Lulu’s celebrate with a tour of the theater and a meeting with former Waitress leading man Jason Mraz 

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 14, 2018) —  Dr. Phillips Center celebrates Pi Day by revealing the two little girls chosen for their big break in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical WAITRESS at Dr. Phillips Center.  Delainey Silvestro, age 5, and Ella Helton, also age 5, will make their professional debut on the Walt Disney Theater stage next week. The girls visited the arts center for a tour of the theater and dressing rooms. Singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, recent star of the Broadway production of WAITRESS, was in town to perform his Solo Acoustic tour at Dr. Phillips Center and took a moment from his sound check to meet the pint-sized pixies. Mraz played Dr. Pomatter in a limited engagement in the musical at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre through February 11, 2018.

Auditions for the role of Lulu were held February 28 at the arts center by WAITRESS creative team members and Dr. Phillips Center Director of Education Dana Brazil. Delainey and Ella were among over 30 aspiring actresses under age 5 (and three months) interviewed to play a “sweet, carefree” young girl in the finale scene of the Tony-nominated show. Both girls are active in dance classes. Delainey also takes piano and showed an interest in acting after her older brother and sister got involved in the theater. Pre-K student Ella takes private voice and acting, having appeared in commercials and toy catalogues. She decided to audition for the Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando tour of WAITRESS when she saw the video of the original Lulu and, according to her mother, “got very excited.”  The girls will split the performance dates during the Orlando engagement. 

WAITRESS debuts in the Walt Disney Theater as part of the 16/17 Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando series on Tuesday, March 20 and runs through Sunday, March 25, 2018.  Delainey and Ella will join the touring Broadway cast of WAITRESS:
