When coronavirus stymied plans for what was supposed to be Float Like a Buffalo's first national tour, the Denver funk-rock band found another way to play live — doing socially distanced shows in yards and driveways across Colorado.
The "Yard Ahead" tour — a play on the group's postponed Road Ahead tour — kicks off from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, with a set in Morrison that will be streamed on the band's Facebook page.
“We’ve all been racking our brains trying to come up with a way to bring the true live experience back to our fans,” says the band's manager, Sarah Shuel, “and we’re so excited to have a way to provide that while maintaining safety. Live music brings so much joy, something that’s needed more than ever right now.”

Float Like a Buffalo worked with Breckenridge Brewery last year on the band's video for "Gone by Morning."
