After 9 years of playing with me, violinist Paul Ermisch is leaving Scupanon. We are sad to see him go, but wish him the best. Paul’s last show will be this Friday, March 8, 2019 at Halfpenny Brewing in Centennial, Colorado. Denver-area folks, don’t miss it!
Paul’s replacement is Jim Hewitt, who plays both violin and mandola. Jim will also be playing at this Friday’s show.
Our show at Odell Brewing in Fort Collins– our first gig ever in Fort Collins– turned out great! Unfortunately our violinist, Paul Ermisch, couldn’t make it due to a family emergency, but former Scupanon percussion, Sam Caston, joined Janet and I. The folks at Fort Collins loved our music. Two drove down from Wyoming to see us!
It was great to hear Sam laying down the beat for my songs again. Look for Sam at some of our future gigs, including Broken Plow Brewery in Greeley, Colorado next month.
Scupanon will be playing Fort Collins, Colorado, for the first time! Dec 5 at O’Dell Brewing, 5-7pm. Hope to make a lot of new friends and fans in Fort Collins!
Scupanon will be playing at Gary Lee’s in the heart of the S. Broadway live music district of Denver on Saturday, Nov 10. We play from 9pm to midnight.

Scupanon had another great gig in Greeley, at the Broken Plow Brewery. There were a lot of people there and we made a lot of new friends and fans. I am working to get us more gigs all over the Colorado Front Range, so stay tuned! -Rob
