Warren Haynes Guests With Umphrey's At Mountain Jam

The tenth annual Mountain Jam music festival began yesterday on Hunter Mountain in Hunter, NY. Dark Star Orchestra kicked off the action on the main stage and were followed by Umphrey's McGee. UM played two sets on the East Stage, where they were joined by one of DSO's drummers and the festival's host for the closing song of the first set.

The Chicago-based sextet opened up the first set with the instrumental "Le Blitz" before embarking on a rare early "Sociable Jimmy." Umphrey's dug deep, treating fans to just the second version of "Space Funk Booty" this year and third "Mullet (Over)" during the opening stanza. A first set "Puppet String" contained a section dubbed "Zsa Zsa Gabor Jam" by fans, while the "Utopian Fir" that came a little later featured teases of Run DMC's "Tricky." Mountain Jam host Warren Haynes and DSO drummer Rob Koritz came out for the "Thin Air" that closed the set.

Set Two started off with a "Plunger" that was broken up by "Deeper" and then "Cemetery Walk" led into "Cemetery Walk II." UM staples "Pay The Snucka" and "2X2" came next and was followed by just the band's second cover of "Driven To Tears" by The Police. The sextet finished their time at Mountain Jam with a "Glory" encore that segued into the end of "Puppet String." Umphrey's now heads off to Wakarusa for two performances. Mountain Jam continues all weekend long with many performances available for viewing via webcast.
