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.
