The Scene: Michael Franti was no doubt one of the best, most “feel good”, non-electronic shows I have ever been to. Through out the whole show the crowd was grasping at the sky trying to catch a piece of the magic.
Favorite Moment: Imagine Michael Franti and Spearhead 30 rows up in the center of the stands at Red Rocks immersed in a sea of 10,000 jumping fans.
Michael Franti could not have picked a more randomly perfect match from the crowd to share the microphone with him during the track “Ganja Baby”.
It was a soul moving night from beginning to end, including the opener Zach Heckendorf Band, composed of a startlingly talented group of Colorado local musicians that aren’t even 20 yet! You can listen to Zach Heckendorf’s tunes for free through KBCO's website!
FYI: Having sold out literally an hour before the show, Michael Franti had a packed house with the most diverse crowd I’ve ever seen, from young hippies to older seasoned Red Rocks veterans, to some people that came with the whole family; there were happy faces everywhere you looked.
