UMPH: NEW DVD & TOUR

UMPHREY'S MCGEE RELEASES SECOND DVD
WRAPPED AROUND CHICAGO: NEW YEAR'S AT THE RIV, ON OCTOBER 18, 2005.

LOOK FOR THE BAND ON TOUR THIS FALL, INCLUDING HALLOWEEN WEEKEND AT VEGOOSE & NEW YEARS IN CHICAGO


Umphrey's McGee
Umphrey's McGee's relentlessly inventive music has garnered them attention as one of today's hottest young acts. Their virtuoso playing and edgy songcraft recently compelled Rolling Stone to choose Umphrey's "a band to watch" in their annual Hot Issue. The band's second DVD release, Wrapped Around Chicago; New Year's at the Riv, was recorded in their hometown on December 30 and 31, 2004 at the Riviera Theatre. The two disc set, which hits streets on October 18, 2005 (SCI Fidelity), offers almost four hours of performance and b-roll footage that captures just what the buzz is all about. Expect jaw-dropping performances and a front row view of the band's unique musical rapport during live shows, plus plenty of irreverent humor, wackiness, and serious nonsense...after all, this is Umphrey's McGee.

The past 18 months have been a quick rise for Chicago's Umphrey's McGee. Relix magazine put them on the cover of their December 2004 issue and the prestigious Chicago Music Awards awarded Umphrey's McGee the coveted Best Rock Entertainer of the Year. The Jammy's also bestowed Umphrey's McGee with three nominations in 2005 - the most nominations for any one band. Umphrey's walked with Song of the Year for "In the Kitchen" from their critically acclaimed 2004 release Anchor Drops.

This fall Umphrey's McGee will bring their hard-hitting live show to theatres from coast to coast, including a stop in Las Vegas at the inaugural Vegoose Festival.
