On Sunday, Jordan moved on to Peoria, IL, to join Umphrey's McGee at the CEFCU Center Stage at The Landing. Jordan, who has joined UM multiple
times in the past, joined the sextet for "Great American" and "Much Obliged" as well as covers of David Bowie's "Fame"
and Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Lenny."
There is plenty of video of the DMB collaborations already circulating on YouTube but none yet from the UM show in

incredible clip of the band going over their original "40's Theme" from a soundcheck at the 2008 New Year's Eve run,
followed by the performance itself.
