Leftover Salmon - Paradise Rock Club - Boston MA
Last week Leftover Salmon made their triumphant return to Boston, MA for the first time in nearly 10 years. They brought with them their signature blend of poly-ethnic cajun slamgrass that can’t help but make you smile and forget about life’s troubles. I spoke with founding members, Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman before their show about the history of the band, their special relationship with The String Cheese Incident, and a bit about their latest album, Aquatic Hitchhiker. Leftover Salmon is on tour now, with new years eve shows scheduled for Chicago, IL.
