Party: An Evening with Umphrey's McGee at CrossroadsKC

Tickets on-sale this Friday at 10 a.m.

► Umphrey's McGee ◀︎

After 16 years of performing over 100 concerts annually, releasing seven studio albums and selling more than 3.3 million tracks online, Umphrey’s McGee might be forgiven if they chose to rest on their laurels and attend to their lives as husbands and fathers. But you’d be wrong. With their eighth studio album, Similar Skin, and first for their own indie label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music (distributed by RED), the group - which formed on the Notre Dame campus outside of South Bend, Indiana in 1997 - has something to prove. And that’s not just to their ever-loyal fan base, but to those who have never heard a note, or worse - dismiss them as “too sophisticated, too complex” or think they know what Umphrey’s McGee is all about.

In a shrinking music business, Umphrey’s McGee have found a way to connect to their fans on a grassroots, one-to-one level that keeps them returning for more, a sentiment that comes off loud and clear on Similar Skin, a paean to the complementary relationship between band and audience that has marked their 16-year career. Now, their DIY ethos is reflected in a new independent label, leaving Umphrey’s McGee free to chase their muse wherever it leads them.

Invited: Dylan Aldrich, Amber Iris Langston, Ashley Thellman, Sara Nicole Glass, Chelsea Hope Dutton, Lacinda Kay, Brady Pyle, Rachna Patel, Lionel Rodriguez, Matt Geier, Justin CObb, George Barry, Tamara Nicole Allen, Jillian Hocking, Nick Icculus Easterday, Michelle Klemansky, Sam Nave, Max Berry, Jake Reisdorff, Lydia Hughes, Josh Holmes show more »
