Umphrey's McGee Rallies for Respect
Jake Cinninger and Andy Farag record personal voice messages for the RESPECT! CampaignSM

Umphrey's McGee
Chicago jam band Umphrey's McGee has joined other celebrities in lending a voice to the Family Violence Prevention Fund's RESPECT! Campaign, a movement aimed at preventing domestic violence through an emphasis on respecting one another.

Fans of Umphrey's can go to Giverespect.org and send friends and family personal voice messages from band members Jake Cinninger and Andy Farag for free. While on the site, they can also lend their own virtual voice to the cause by donating or inviting others to the virtual rally for respect.

The band's involvement comes at a key point in the RESPECT! Campaign with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Umphrey's McGee's next show is tonight (10/17) in Geneva, NY. Complete tour dates available here.

Really? I had always interpreted 'Get in the Van' to be about domestic abuse.

More like South Bend jam band Umphrey's McGee. It's to bad they say there from Chicago. Still got much love, one of my favorite groups seen um at least 15, 20 times. Every new year in Chicago baby, can't wait tell this New Years I'm sure it will be as dope as the last.

Yes... Everybody should be nice. Umphreys is great, and their fans are too. I'm looking forward to two nights in knoxville at the Bijou theatre. In such a negitive world we are in it is nice to see a band stand for someting good.

^^am i the only one who doesn't know what this dude's talkin about?

umphreys rules. and if you don't like them, they probably don't care. that's why they're on a stage and we're on the internet.

it's nice to see a band staying out of politics and just doing stuff for a charity to which no one could really take issue.

THESE GUYS ARE FROM SOUTH BEND... I dont Care what anyone says. Till youve seen them play there you dont know. Ive saw umph around 50 times in 2 years. BAD ASS band... One of THE best. But of course there will be haters. ALWAYS. But I dont get why they even post. And this band is still touring Because they are the shit and on top of the game.

Simply just a tool, met him 3-4 times and everytime he upended the last.... Hope Joel keeps praticing the stage humor, he blows a big one everytime hes up there(Ill say hes a good musican but other then that leave the talking up to Brendan and Andy !
