Canyon Collected and 'Krissy & Lathe' from Mr. Uppercut performed a tribute to the music of Blind Melon on Friday night (07/07/2017) at The Big Wonderful in Aurora, Colorado. They performed songs from all three Blind Melon studio albums and even the Velvet Underground cover of Candy Says. Krissy had brought the cross that Shannon's mother, Nel Hoon had given her, and it was an appropriate and powerful reminder of the presence and impact that Shannon Hoon made on the world. A big thank you goes out to all of the musicians involved in this tribute. It was wonderful hearing Blind Melon songs being performed to a large group of people in 2017. It was a testament to Shannon's legacy.
