Umphrey's McGee were originally formed back in 1997, from guitarist and vocalist Brendan Bayliss, bassist Ryan Stasik, keyboardist Joel Cummins, and drummer Mike Mirro, combining members of Tashi Station and Stomper Bob, guitarist Jake Cinninger joined them in 2000 and drummer Andy Farag in 2002 when Mike Mirro left, which nearly destroyed the band. Early concerts consisted of both originals and cover songs, including Guns N' Roses', Vince Guaraldi's Peanuts theme, "Linus and Lucy," as well as songs by Phish, moe and the Grateful Dead. They are a Jam band that experiments with many musical styles, including rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, reggae, electronic, bluegrass, and folk. They have twelve studio albums stretching from 1998 to 2018 and Umphrey's McGee yearly releases an album entitled Hall of Fame, which includes the fan-voted the best songs from live shows of the previous year, the last one of these was 2019, so don’t bother going looking for a 2020 version… it ain't happening. Over 2,200 gigs and 5 million tracks sold later, they’ve enjoyed countless milestones. 2002 saw them perform at the first-ever Bonnaroo and sell more CDs than any other act on the bill. They became the “first group to launch its own single artist streaming service.” They recorded ten tracks in one day at Abbey Road for The London Session in 2015.
