Live Music: Colorway
August 16 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Hailing from Northampton, Mass and exuding the progressive, energetic and rootsy/indie leanings of the Pioneer Valley (home of And The Kids, The Sun Parade and Sebadoh) Colorway has put out two full length albums of finessed rock and roll (the latest release mastered by engineering god, Bob Ludwig). The band strive to make every live show an new experience where revelatory moments aren’t sacrificed for the sake of a cookie cutter set devoid of rough edges. Bandleader/vocalist/guitarist F. Alex Johnson gobbles up every inch of real estate on his guitar neck while bassist Matt Clegg and drummer, Riley Godleski hold down the fort with equal parts grace and ferocity.
Colorway has opened sold out shows for Foreigner, The Yardbirds, Delta Deep (feat. members of Def Leppard and Stone Temple Pilots), Ian Hunter, Quinn Sullivan and Television’s Richard Lloyd (who called the group “amazing and inspiring”) and was included in the 2016 Green River Festival alongside Dawes, Los Lobos, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Shakey Graves, Peter Wolf, NRBQ and tons more over three days.
