DeJoria Center Welcomes Legendary Band Leftover Salmon

In Press Releases by DJC Admin

Kamas, Utah – April 10, 2019

DeJoria Center is excited to welcome the timeless and legendary band, Leftover Salmon on Friday, June 21. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.

Leftover Salmon is a renowned Americana band whose music touches on folk, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, bluegrass and Cajun soul. The gang was first formed by Drew Emmitt, who played mandolin, guitar and fiddle; Vince Herman, a front-man personality that can get any crowd on its feet; and Mark Vann, who played a wicked banjo.

In the 1990’s, Leftover Salmon produced several albums including “Bridges to Bert” (1993) and “Ask the Fish” (1995). By 1997, their  unique style of music had spread across the country and Leftover Salmon, along with many other bands, traveled together on the H.O.R.D.E tour. The band’s major label debut with their album “Euphoria” was released on Hollywood records in 1997 and set the bar for the slamgrass style. To end the ‘90s, the band released a star studded album called “Nashville Sessions” (1999) with the likes of John Hartford, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, and many others. Not only did this album thrash the common label of slamgrass music, it pulled together some of the best musicians from all different genres.

In 2002, Vann, died from cancer, but before his death urged the group to continue on no matter what, and so they did. They went on to release “Live” as a tribute to Vann in 2002. In 2003, they released “O’Cracker Where Art Thou?” which included a revolutionary collaboration with the alternative rock band, Cracker.

Since the early 2000’s, Leftover Salmon has continued to tour relentlessly and produced four more albums, including their 25th Anniversary album labeled “25.” The band’s raw talent and innovative sound is the reason it’s been performing for over 25 years. The lineup is now completed by bassist Greg Garrison, banjo player Andy Thorn, drummer Alwyn Robinson, and keyboardist Erik Deutsch.

“DeJoria Center is excited to welcome one of the most exciting and engaging jam bands in history, Leftover Salmon,” said Mike Storm, general manager for DeJoria Center. “Leftover Salmon delivers powerful performances to all of their audiences, and I’m sure they will not disappoint ours here at DeJoria Center.”
