Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO
Improvisational jam band wizards Umphrey's McGee return to Red Rocks Amphitheater on Sunday 3rd July for a night of musical sorcery that makes the body move and the mind drift away… The renowned prog-rockers are joined for the evening by Grateful Dead lovers Joe Russo's Almost Dead and up-and-comers The Main Squeeze for some funk, soul and rock 'n' roll! Prepare to be blown away by true talent and an awe-inspiring show!
Umphrey's McGee are an improvisational progressive rock “jam band”. Taking influence from the spontaneous, ad-lib feel of bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish, but musically akin to the prog rock greats like King Crimson, Umprey's McGee have a unique, experimental sound which cannot be pigeon-holed. After just 8 months together, the band released their ironically titled debut album Greatest Hits Vol. III in 1998. By the tail end of that year, the band had released their first live album, Songs for Older Women, and had adopted a large following in their local area, playing at house parties and colleges. Over the years they honed their improvisational skills and started playing further afield, making a name for themselves as a dynamic, prolific band with a dedicated following.
