We feel very humbled to be playing the Hard Rock Live following Phish at the MGM. This venue has a lot of history of some of the greatest bands and musicians in the world who have played in Vegas. For us, the last time we as a band were all at the Hard Rock Live in Vegas, we were watching a two- night Umphrey’s Mcgee run where we were playing the afterparty in a small venue quite far from the Hard Rock Live. Now we are back several years later playing our own two-night headlining run during Phish Halloween and we couldn’t be more excited.We are also very stoked to be teaming up with Live for Live Music to have them present this run. We have been following their story and brand for a long time and to finally have the chance to work with them is really cool for us.Live for Live Music is also proud to present Eminence Ensemble with very special guests Cycles in Frisco, CO at 10 Mile Music Hall on December 30th. Tickets are only $5 to see the two Colorado powerhouses set the small mountain town ablaze. Miles from the base of Breckenridge Ski Resort and Lake Dillon, fans can ski and ride by day, or take advantage of any of the other countless winter activities in the area, then catch some stellar music by night. Tickets and more information for the show can be found here.Eminence Ensemble is currently in the studio recording their sophomore album and is excited to share more information and release date in the upcoming weeks.
