Buffalo groove rockers Aqueous close out their spring 2017 tour with two final stops close to home. The band is headed to Syracuse at the Westcott Theater on Friday and to Erie at the King Rook Club on Saturday. In Syracuse, the band will be supported by the New Daze.
Aqueous‘ Mike Ganzter told NYS Music that the band is looking forward to playing this weekend’s shows and explained that fans can expect to catch something different and special. “We’ve been itching to explore our improv side more.” he noted, “We’ve got some special tricks up our sleeve for both shows!”
Aqueous has gained speedy momentum this year with unexpected newsworthy moments, most recently highlighted with a surprise switch out earlier this month. moe.’s Al Schnier invited the band on stage to perform an original Aqueous’ tune. And it’s that kind of energy, explains Ganzter, that has the band exploring their sound on tour. ” We’ve definitely been getting more and more creative with the flow and vibe of the sets, and that’s exciting for us. We’re feeling incredibly inspired at the moment and we plan to channel that inspiration and energy into both performances, and we can’t wait to see everyone raging both nights!”
Despite playing the Westcott Theatre multiple times, Friday night marks the band’s headlining debut at the venue. The band last played the venue in September 2016 in support of Everyone Orchestra.
Gantzer also noted that Saturday’s Erie, PA show will be one not to miss. ” Erie is ALWAYS a throwdown. Our fans literally have a saying ‘Never Miss an Erie Show’, and we plan to keep the momentum going there, too!”
After the final two dates of spring tour, the band will take a few weeks off before heading out for a summer packed with festivals including Domefest, Summer Camp, Peachfest, Tumble Down and The Big What? Aqueous will also join Umphrey’s McGee for multiple dates this summer including May 19 in Baltimore and July dates at Central Park’s NYC Summer Series and the Stone Pony Summer Stage series.
