Cover Alert | Umphrey’s McGee Tackles Doobie Brothers

Not long after Jake Cinninger joined Umphrey’s McGee the band started covering The Doobie Brothers’ 1974 hit “Black Water.” Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss share lead vocals on the UM version of the tune, while Kris Myers and Joel Cummins back them up.

“Black Water” has become a rarity in recent years as UM has only performed the track six times since 2007. The most recent UM version of “Black Water” took place on October 21 at The State Theatre in State College, PA. The band has shared footage shot at Front Of House on their official YouTube channel.
