Saturday’s sold-out Michael Franti & Spearhead concert with Bret Dennen at Red Rocks Amphitheatre was the crowning of the Love Hope Strength Foundation’s two days of raising money and registrants for its bone marrow registry. (Friday and Saturday 200 cancer survivors and supporters hiked Pikes Peak to raise cash and get more folks on the international bone marrow registries).

Saturday, the general-audience fun unveiled in a performance that found charismatic front man Franti leaving the stage at times and making himself at home all over the historic amphitheater.
