Coming off the heels of their highly-anticipated studio album announcement earlier this month, Aqueous has just released their NYE 2018 plans and it's official – they will be home for the holidays.
To ring in 2019 proper on December 31st, the band will once again take over Buffalo's Town Ballroom with Lespecial joining as support on the bill. Last year's NYE bash at Town Ballroom sold out, so fans are encouraged to procure their tickets early.
Today, the Buffalo-based groove-rock quartet known as Aqueous announces their most extensive headlining tour to date. Starting this September and culminating in December, Aqueous will hit 27 cities, seeing support from the likes of Mungion, ELM, The Heavy Pets, EGI and Goose. Aqueous' Mike Gantzer shares, “The band has some really big plans for this tour, and we’ve been sitting on a ton of material that we can’t wait to debut!
Beanstalk Music Festival 2018 was one for the books, everyone! Where to begin… Imagine a festival with one of the best lineups the Colorado jam music scene has to offer in a beautiful location on the river, deep in the mountains. There was rafting, hiking, tubing, kayaking, paddle boarding, camping with friends, fantastic food, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, and a full moon lighting your way at night. Those are all just the extra activities available at Beanstalk every year, but this particular line up was very special.
“Our show at the Bluebird was one of those rare nights where everything totally clicked," recalls Mike Gantzer of Aqueous, regarding their breakout June 9th, 2018 performance at the famed Denver theater. "The band was riding a wave of synergy, the setlists were a blast, and we had a sold-out crowd in front of us at this wonderful theater in Denver–it was just a beautiful evening and there was a little bit of magic in the air. The fan response to these sets was overwhelming."
Aqueous is an improvisational groove rock 4-piece powerhouse band from Buffalo, New York. Grateful Web got the opportunity to sit down with Mike Gantzer of Aqueous to discuss the band, future albums, their summer/fall tour, and debut performance at Denver's Bluebird coming up on June 9th.
