Fillmore Auditorium | Denver, Colorado
Psychedelic kings and Colorado favorites, Umphrey's McGee, are famed for their "New Year's Run"; an annual string of shows that ring in the seasonal changes, Umphrey's style! This year, the unstoppable force of trippy improv are bringing the three day party to Fillmore Auditorium and it's going to be wild! The fellas will be stopping by on Wednesday 30th December, Thursday 31st December and Saturday 2nd January – don't miss them!
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, they 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.
