Join us this summer for an extra-special Colorado River rafting trip with Spencer and Friends!
Combine your love for Cataract Canyon with your appreciation for local folk music and indie rock. Spencer and Friends have been playing together for almost 15 years. Although school, work, and life have called Spencer, Nik, and Landon in different directions since they got their start playing Guns N’ Roses covers in their parents’ basements, this summer, they’re getting the band back together. And they’re bringing it on the river.
Live, acoustic music is a natural complement to a river trip. Guitar harmonies flow in tune with the water and the canyon walls. Spend six days stretched out on large sandy beaches under Cataract’s magnificent red walls. Tap your toes while Spencer and Friends weave their unique sound into the landscape. Spencer’s love for electronic music melds with Landon and Nik’s laid back, alternative, and classic rock styles. With acoustic guitars, an acoustic bass, and a guitar-ukulele, they’ll craft the soundtrack for the trip.
In true Holiday go-with-the-flow style, the musicians will time their performances to fit the overall vibe of the group, the canyon, and the river. Each day may include breakfast jamming, a campfire concert, or a session at some of our hiking destinations. This trip will also hit the high notes of any Cataract Canyon expedition: varied geology, tranquil flatwater followed by epic whitewater, and magical side hikes. And, of course, our incomparable guides will take care of all the cooking, camp chores, and rowing! We’re especially excited about this one—Spencer Torman is one of Holiday’s own guides. We can’t wait to see him bring together his dual passions for music and the river.
