Umphrey’s McGee is a band that’s been a long time favorite here at Trondossa HQ, so it goes without saying having them perform both days of #Trondossa2019 is a true honor and a real thrill! Their latest album has something for everyone, and if you haven’t had a chance to see them live previous…man, you are in for an excellent experience!
“The music of Umphrey’s McGee unfolds like an unpredictable conversation between longtime friends. Its six participants—Brendan Bayliss [guitar, vocals], Jake Cinninger [guitar, vocals], Joel Cummins [keyboards, piano, vocals], Andy Farag [percussion], Kris Myers [drums, vocals], and Ryan Stasik [bass]—know just how to communicate with each other on stage and in the studio. A call of progressive guitar wizardry might elicit a response of soft acoustic balladry, or a funk groove could be answered by explosive percussion. At any moment, heavy guitars can give way to heavier blues as the boys uncover the elusive nexus between jaw-dropping instrumental virtuosity and airtigt song craft.”
