Umphrey's McGee

Chicago's own Umphrey's McGee is becoming one of the nation's fastest growing live acts.
UM has made the move into larger venues, filling venues across the country with their unique multi-genre jams. Originals that span everything from classical to bluegrass, gangsta-rap to rock, jazz improv to down right dirty evil funk, UM pleases all types of music lovers. With a tightly constructed light show and the addition of a few fun, danceable cover songs with a unique UM twist, the live show is a spectacle to be embraced. "These guys could be playing 1000+ venues all over the country if only more people knew about them. They have 'Big Time Jam Band' written all over their sound." -Charlie Dirksen, reviewing Dean Budnick's 'Jambands' "Holy Time Changes, Batman!!!!!" -Dave Rioux, jambands.com "Superlative Millennial Dance Music..." -Judge #5, Liquid Magazine Battle of the Bands "Theirs is the sound of full contentment." -Cincinnati City Beat

Mountain Jam - June 1-3, 2007 - Hunter Mountain, NY

What do you get when you cross a stellar line-up, sneaky security and police presence, and ominous weather? The answer is the third annual Mountain Jam. Oh, and I forgot to mention red clay mud. Most of us arrived dry and intact and looking forward to a weekend of great music. I set up shop in the middle of a tent city with good friends on all sides and proceeded with the weekend.

The first act that really struck me was, of course, Burlington, VT's own, RAQ. They've really come into their own by heavily touring and playing together on stage all the time. Some of their songs cause you to pump your fist and chant anthem-like lyrics while others just make you groove. You can really hear that they mesh well and have a lot of fun bringing the funk as was most apparent in their afternoon set of music.

Summer Camp Music Festival - May 25-27, 2007

As music-and-camping festivals become more and more ubiquitous, there are an increasing number of ways that enthusiasts categorize their favorite, and not so favorite, summer haunts. There are the “massive festies” that will certainly not fail to be a party touched with large-scale hedonism, nearly 24-hour activity and welcomed sensory overload, i.e. Bonnaroo in Tennessee and 10,000 Lakes in Minnesota. There are the “chill festies” like Connecticut’s long-standing Gathering of the Vibes and California’s High Sierra.
