Afroman invited to Steamboat by CMC freshman

The American rapper known as Afroman will be in Steamboat Springs for a show at Schmiggity's on Monday.

— Colorado Mountain College freshman and Minneapolis native Samuel Keller’s determination to see Afroman live will finally come to fruition Monday.

Listening to Afroman’s music since middle school, Keller decided to look up the booking manager on Afroman’s website.

Primarily, musicians are invited to perform at shows through professionals who contact the booking manager, but Keller managed to get the musician here merely on his own accord.

“Our motive was to get someone like Afroman here and not have to drive anywhere to go see a show like his,” Keller said.

Keller has been living in Steamboat Springs for three months, and for this show, he reached out to Pat Waters and Kim Haggarty, who own Schmiggity’s, and they were willing to have the show at their local venue. Now they are trying to get the word out.

On Monday, the show for patrons 18 and older will start at 9 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available at All That Jazz.

Joseph Foreman, Afroman’s real name, is a rapper known for the hit single, “Because I Got High.” He was nominated for a Grammy award in 2002, and he currently is on tour throughout the U.S. He also has a new EP coming out Nov. 24.

“I’m definitely looking forward to it,” Keller said. “I’ve never met a celebrity, and the fact that it’s someone I’m a fan of makes it even more exciting.”
