2017 PASSAFIRE Recap

Another year in the books for PASSAFIRE. Some major highlights for us included releasing our 7th studio release (Longshot), kicking off Cali Roots Fest weekend on The Bowl Stage, performing in Tahiti for the first time, and playing a sweaty Halloween set in animal costumes! As always, we’d be nothing without the support of our friends and family. THANK YOU! We especially want to thank anyone who made it to one (or more) of the 108 shows we played in 2017. Happy New Year!
