Umphreys McGee, the experimental Jam band that play a mashed up explosion of rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, reggae, electronic, bluegrass, and folk. Originally these boys were from South Bend, Indiana, they were 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 replaced Mike Mirro in 2002. That same year saw them perform at the first-ever Bonnaroo Music Festival and sell more albums than any of the 30 other bands on the bill. They have thirteen studio albums stretching from 1998 to 2021 and Umphrey's Mcgee annually releases an album entitled Hall of Fame, which includes the fan-voted the best songs from live shows of the previous year. Their thirteenth studio album, You Walked Up Shaking In Your Boots But You Stood Tall And Left A Raging Bull, came out in July 2021 consisting of music that was used as a pre-recorded introduction as Umphrey’s took the stage at live shows. The songs, including lead single “Leave Me Las Vegas,” have “gotten the full studio treatment”.
