Green Lemon 2005 Tour Stops in Missouri

Colorado’s Green Lemon band will visit Springfield for a show on Saturday, February 26th. Green Lemon kicked off its 2005 tour in January juiced about recent national recognition and they’ve already racked up road warrior status having played to crowds in Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina.

The Green Lemon band regularly tours across the country and they played 14 national festivals during the spring & summer of 2004. Recently, they were honored by being named the “New Home Grown Band of the Year” by Leeway’s Home Grown Music Network and being listed as “One of the Top Bands to See Live in 2005” by The Green Lemon guys were also featured in the September/October issue of Relix Magazine where they were named the number one band you should know about.

Musicians Wayne Allen, Matt Fioravanti, Chris Cox, Jonathan Cordero and Steve Schaben all grew up in Edmond, Oklahoma where the band honed its unique sound. In 2001, the band packed up their gear and moved to Ft. Collins, Colorado to further their careers and they haven’t looked back since. With a loyal following of Lemonheads, they continue to fill venues across the country and expand their reputation as rising stars.

The Green Lemon bus will roll into Missouri for a show at The Rockwell before moving on. Catch the Lemons on Saturday night, and see what Hittin’ The Note Magazine says “happens when five guys from Oklahoma are pinned down in a collision of futuristic electronic music and the historic roots of dub reggae.”

When South Carolina’s MetroBeat Magazine caught up with this relentlessly touring group in January, they found that, “Green Lemon is hardly your typical jam band. Transcending the usual neo-hippie mix of Grateful Dead, Phish and String Cheese Incident-inspired improvisation, the Colorado-based band delivers a wildly eclectic sound that broadly expands the territory a jam band can cover without sacrificing its core.”

The Rockwell is located at 221 South Avenue, and can be reached at 417-869-ROCK. For a complete schedule, more information about the band and audio samples, visit
