Umphrey’s McGee at Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh, NC

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 songcraft.

UMPHREY’S MCGEE with special guest Zach Deputy will play Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh on Friday October 12. Tickets go on sale Friday July 13 at 11am at LiveNation.com, via the Live Nation app, Duke Energy Center and Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek box offices, Ticketmaster, or by phone 800-745-3000.
