This New Year's Umphrey's McGee goes circus-style in a Big Top show that promises to be one of the best of 2004. In the first ring, colossal dueling guitarists Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger will spin their web of intricate melodies to boggle your mind and excite your senses. In ring two, witness the startling percussive precision of Andy Farag and Kris Myers as they walk the rhythmic tightrope of changing time signatures. And in the third ring, the daring talent and curious excitability of Ryan Stasik and Joel Cummins, who complete the audio smorgasbord. Together with a dazzling lightshow, sidestage entertainment, special musical guests, and many more exciting surprises, this Big-Top bash is aiming to be the Greatest Rock Show on Earth.
