Full Documentary Friday | Umphrey's McGee Nachos For Two

We're still in disbelief that former Umphrey's McGee drummer Mike "Mikey" Mirro has passed away. His loss had us thinking back to his role in the 2001 Umphrey's documentary Nachos For Two. Mike was still a member of the band at the time and is featured throughout the piece, which was put together by Umphreaks Jared Scott and Michael Tanour.

The film contains interviews with the band members, concert footage and a behind-the- scenes look at the band house. There’s so many wonderful moments included within such as the members of UM working out a tough transition verbally and then pulling it off in concert, Jake Cinninger showing his multi-instrumental prowess and Mirro talking about not wanting to play bars throughout his 20s. That’s not even mentioning the concert and practice footage including "The Fuzz," "Last Man Swerving," "’40s Theme" and "All In Time." While the YouTube clip clearly came from a VHS tape and isn’t the best quality, this is a must- see video for Umphrey’s fans:
