Umphrey’s McGee

[ROCK] Umphrey’s McGee are a Midwestern six-piece steeped in progressive rock musicianship, metal power, and quite a bit of funk. In their 20-year career, they’ve garnered a diehard cult following, with a widespread demographic stretching from young, tie-dye wearing hippies to dads in their mid-50s, and any music lover in between. Tight instrumentalism across the board coupled with ever-changing set lists and live improvisation cap off their live shows. With a superhuman ability to play together, their studio work never falters, but their April 2015 release, The London Session, may be most indicative of their prowess. Recorded over 12 hours at the famed Abbey Road Studios, The London Session comprises unreleased gems, a couple of recent songs with fresh fixtures, a few old favorites sharpened and polished for posterity, and one crushing Beatles cover that ties it all up with reverence. Catch Umphrey’s McGee with Aqueous at Canalside on Thursday, August 6.
