Devildog Productions also announced today that Big Head Todd & The Monsters will perform in the Crown Room on Sunday, Dec. 17. Tickets are $28 in advance or $33 on the day of the show.
Tickets for all for the shows just announced will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 6.
The band formed in Boulder when members of the Salmon Heads and Left Hand String Band coalesced. Leftover Salmon’s high-spirited live shows led to a national following. The group went on hiatus after original bassist Mark Vann passed away in 2002 following a fight with cancer. It reformed after a series of reunion tours in 2007 and 2008.
Two players have been with the band all 27 years — guitarist Vince Herman and mandolin and fiddle player Drew Emmitt. Greg Garrison has been the bassist since 2000. Andy Thorn plays banjo, Alwyn Robinson drums and Erik Deutsch, the newest member, plays keyboards.
