Joel Cummins To Perform With Cosby Sweater In Chicago

Next weekend Umphrey’s McGee returns to their hometown of Chicago for a three-night stand at the Riviera Theatre. After Friday night’s show UM keyboardist Joel Cummins will head over to Concord Music Hall to perform with Cosby Sweater at an official Umphrey’s McGee after party in Chicago.

Joel guested with Cosby Sweater a number of times in 2013, though his February 21st performance will mark his first appearance of 2014 with the trio. “Playing with Cosby Sweater is always a blast for me. Instead of having to compete with two highly-skilled guitarists in Umphrey’s, I can go toe to toe with the finest EWI player in central Indiana, Nick Gerlach. It’s a recipe for great tunes, a dance party and even a good joke or two. Be ready to get Moog-ed,” Cummins tells JamBase.

Tickets for the show are currently available via ClubTix. While Friday and Saturday’s Umphrey’s McGee performances are sold out, a handful of tickets remain for Thursday night.
