Jun. 23—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 airtight song.
Umphrey's McGee will perform two shows at It's Showtime at the Drive-In on June 29 and 30. Gates open at 5 p.m. and show starts at 6:30 p.m. for both events. Tickets are available for these performances at a unique drive-in concert venue located at the Frederick Fairgrounds. These shows are for all ages.
