This year's Mayan Holidaze got
off to an auspicious start when driving rain enveloped the Now Sapphire Resort in Puerto
Morelos, Mexico towards the end of Day One. Event organizers and band crew members didn't let the rain bring the evening to a close, as they converted a meeting room at
the resort into a venue so
McGee and the Disco
Biscuits could still play.
Umphrey's org member Kevin Browning shared a quick look at the changeover:
Both bands utilized practice gear to perform a set a piece. Umphrey's tipped their hat
towards the weather by covering "Fool In The Rain" by Led Zeppelin and delivered the rare
"triple sandwich" as portions of "Bridgeless," "Higgins" and "August" were weaved together
to form the majority of the set. Meanwhile, the Disco Biscuits presented a set filled with
classic material including "Helicopters," "I-Man" and an inverted version of "Crickets."
Let's hope the weather improves for today's Day Two.
Here's a look at the setlists:
